You can then apply the same principles to more unusual words by breaking them down into syllables, for example taking an old Palace player at random 'Paul' obviously has 4 letters and 'Hinshelwood' I can immediately visualise as 11 letters, so 15 in total. Trent Alexander Arnold is 20 letters, I can see it immediately as 5+9+6.

Anyway fascinating and extremely useful stuff I'm sure you will agree. My wife sometimes persuades me to have a crack at a few more complicated ones at family gatherings, just so she and her relatives can laugh at the weirdo.
Very impressive.

I've always struggled with peoples names but can remember numbers no problem. If someone tells me their phone number i can normally remember it straight away. Its like a rhythm in my head - i just remember the numbers in a rhythm. Eg a mobile no - i split it in to sections 5, 3 and 3. so 07789 191 191. By the way, thats not a number i'ever heard before.

Poor Doris from Redhill is now going to have 25 calls a day with people singing ‘Glad All Over’ down the blower at her.

I had a friend who could remember all her friends' car number plates.

And she could race pints (or yards) faster than most men, and yet was actually very feminine.

How do you handle numbers, i.e. 2021? Do you count that as just 4, or do you have to spell it out as two thousand and twenty one or even twenty twenty one?

Thanks for your interest in this fascinating topic.

Not really an avenue I have extensively explored but it would be the full spelling as if you were writing it out, as per the first of your alternatives.

I've got some covert weird things, but nothing you'd ever notice.

Whenever I see the word 'Norwich', my internal narration says "Norridge is Porridge". I sometimes think about saying this out loud, but then I realise there is absolutely no context for it.

Occasionally I believe I am in some sort of Truman Show/Bourne Identity hybrid. So I will take different routes to work and back home in order to throw off a tail or disrupt would-be attackers. It seems to be working so far. I have never really questioned myself about this behaviour.

Rather than eat individual items in a set order during a meal, I feel I need to have some of everything on my fork for each mouthful. This is because I believe a dish's components should complement each other and create flavour and texture profiles that you would not get by eating single items on their own. For example, at the extreme level, if you eat foie-gras on its own it is likely to be too rich and fatty. But if you eat it with a combination of a tart sauce/fruit and a crunchy element then it becomes something much more enjoyable. Or another example, let's say a nice roast beef joint. Beef is great on its own, but combine it with a good cauliflower cheese, gravy, the mild bitterness of some spring greens and a swipe of horseradish then it is elevated to something entirely different. If you are eating each item separately then I suppose you are perhaps more of an 'eat to live' person rather than 'live to eat'.

Sometimes I will randomly think about a tennis ball being rubbed on my front teeth. This makes me cringe and coil up.a bit.

Everytime someone says Stoke on Trent, I always reply “Bent”. Thankfully it occurs just in my head.

Whenever a clock goes “ding dong“, I can’t stop doing a “cuckoo“ in time with the chimes.

You wouldn't catch me anywhere near a gym!

And I hate lemon. I have to physically remove it if someone puts it in a drink or indeed on top of fish etc.

I have an automatic response to some words as well. It is so automatic that I can not even think of what those words are at the moment I will come back to this thread once I hear them again ....
