If you had to give up or permanently lose one of your five senses, which one would you prefer?
  • Sight
  • Hearing
  • Touch
  • Taste
  • Smell
If I had to lose one, for me it would be hearing. I'd say the majority of sounds are annoying and you can always learn sign language or write/type messages. Also, you'd never have to worry about sounds keeping you up at night such as barking dogs or snoring.

I could not imagine how horrible it would be to be blind.

There are way too many yummy foods to lose your taste. Also, you may not be able to tell if certain foods are going bad.

There are not many smells I enjoy, but there are also not that many that annoy me.

Finally to have no feeling would mean no physical pain, but there would still be emotional pain. Also there are lots of comfortable things that would be hard to give up.

But what happens when you are a deaf scitzophrenic - and only hear the voices inside your head?

Id give up smell thank you very much. Losing your hearing is a life changer. Losing your sense of smell is not really.

I'd give up smell. Hearing is so much more important than smell, in my opinion.

Agreed. although scent has SO much to do with taste.....but to be blind would be unfathomable.

Deafness would not be much better! Imagine not being able to hear Lemmy croon Motorhead's finest as he lullabies you to sleep!! The horror!
