The first time I came upon the word kinesthesia was in a biography about Margaret Mead where she was labeled a kinestetic because of her ability to cross-utilize her senses - such as being able to smell a color. People believed (or at least the author proposed) that her amazing ability as an anthropologist was enhanced by her kinesthesia.

Actually, that's synesthesia (or synaesthesia). If kinesthesia were etymologically spelled, it and synesthesia would be homophones. I may should have to put that in. —Muke Tever 17:30, 24 March 2006 (UTC)
Added a note. A better example showing confusion of 'kinesthesia' with 'synesthesia' would be appreciated, if anyone could produce one. —Muke Tever 17:41, 24 March 2006 (UTC)

Move to citations page because they take up too much space. Looks ok other than that. Mglovesfun (talk) 15:44, 5 January 2014 (UTC)
