    It might sound strange but I'm wondering if anyone else gives numbers to people.

    The number can be due to their personality (eg 6 for someone kind because the curves seem 'gentle' and 7 for someone mean because of the straight 'stern' lines) or because the number just 'feels right' for that person.

    I don't know if this makes any sense but does anyone else do this, is it normal?

    Everyone in the history of mankind has done this (most of them currently do this an awful lot). I don't see why this is even a question; it's common sense.

    even if you do it to everyone you meet and when you see that person the first thing you think about is their number?

    Yes, everybody does that, it's human nature. It's called judgement.

    I’ve never done this?

    I do the thing where I assign colours to things/maybe people (e.g. Monday’s are light blue, history is orange) but I’ve never done numbers–is that the same thing?

    What you do is not common at all and might be worth seeing a doctor about. That's incredibly abnormal and I don't know anyone who does that.

      Yeah i do some of these things too, but with the numbers I feel like it's more detailed and I've memorized so many different ones

      Not numbers, but colours. It's subconscious and I don't mean to, but I associate everything with a specific colour and I find it difficult to explain. People at school look at me like I'm weird when I try to explain it xD
