Are synesthetes more creative?

Synesthesia, the coupling of two or more senses, is a fascinating phenomenon. A small minority of people have it, and as a consequence, they have an automatic association of senses. Examples are colours associated with music, or smells associated with images. The linked art-icle gives a condensed overview, and raises/answers the question whether synesthetes are more creative. I found it an interesting read.
