    Default Which sense is your strongest?

    Kind of a weird question, but I'm curious. Usually, it seems either Sight or Hearing is the strongest of a person's 5 senses. I guess we could give the honorable mention to unexpectedly strong Touch, Smell, or Taste, though.

    ****


    My main reason for this thread: I have good Sight memory. If I see a word or a name once, I'll probably remember from there on out exactly how to spell it. Meanwhile, I have horrible Hearing memory. If I'm listening to someone talk and I'm not in closely-engaged conversation, I'm going to miss all the details, and almost always start drifting off. When I picture what that person is saying as written words, I automatically catch more of the content. Obviously, it helps the most when I write it down, so I can directly look at it. (I have college lectures in mind, specifically.)
    Edit: I just remembered, I can keep a lot of details with me if I'm listening to someone intently--usually a good friend. But in everyday observation, it doesn't stick with me.

    Does any of this sound familiar to you? Maybe it's the same for you, but with Hearing instead of Sight?

    I think my sense of hearing is quite strong, as too many sounds/noise really gets to me and bothers me. Apart from that, touch drives me up the wall, in a good way.

    My hearing sucks. I'm the worst for someone with no outward problems other than tinnitus.

    I have pretty awesome eyes.. They corrected themselves when I needed glasses (I dunno how.. I needed them in middle school, tossed them by high school.) and I've had them damaged twice and they're still kickin' ass and takin' names.

    My sense of touch rocks too. When I touch something, I can feel it. Definitely works everytime. On stuff that sucks to touch too, like a hot plate or liquid nitrogen.

    ... Those were the ones I picked btw. I don't have anything extraordinary about my smell or taste.. so those two were left, since I hate picking just one thing. XD

    I just got a fortune cookie today (true story) that said "Keep your feet grounded when your friends make you float." or something gay like that.

    I'm painfully lacking in a lot of these areas. I'm actually just extremely average on most accounts except for my sense of smell, which is horrendous.

    I'm athletic though so I guess maybe touch-------------------> movement(can I do that?). Fuck it, my sense of movement is the best. Better yet bodily kinesthetic(thank Gardner for that term)

    My IQ in that is like 156
    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.
