Which one would it be, I'd probably choose smell, cause I'd still be able to play guitar.
#2
Touch, I wouldn't have to sit on my hand to give myself the stranger anymore.

Is this out of the commonly accepted 5 normal senses, or can I choose any of the apparently 21 senses we have?
#12
I already don't have a sense of smell, and I can assure you it's nothing to miss.

Taste. It would have some benefits. For example, since you can't taste anything eating healthy foods would be much easier.

Well, that's the only one really.

What?, thats not the same thing.
Quote by saphrax, in the thread I linked
I've asked this question many a time to friends, so which of your senses would you chose to lose if you had to?

I'm counting taste and smell as one sense by the way, as they are inextricably linked.
Yes, actually, it is. The poll title is different, but the OP poses the same question.

But for exact matches...

How could you guys give up taste?

Food is delicious. I couldn't live without it.

Lack of taste doesn't prevent one from eating.

And see my first post for why losing taste could be good.

Taste, I think.

I mean, I could still smell foods, and even though I love food, and love the taste of things, it's not like I could never eat again. I could still get my nourishment.

Hearing and Sight are just too important too me as well, and I love certain smells, and that would be hard to give up, as well.

Plus, who could live without touch? That would be hard as hell. Life wouldn't be worth living.

Sorry, that's not what I meant. I meant that I love tasting good food, I don't know how I could live without tasting awesome food. It's worth sometimes having to eat healthy food that doesn't taste great.

So yeah, I'd probably give up smell.

I see what you mean, but my point is, if you can't taste it, why eat unhealthy food?

And don't know know, without your sense of smell your sense of taste will be diminished to almost nothing. Either way, food will lose its novelty for you.


I understand what you mean though.

Can I just not lose any of my senses?
#26
I already cant smell, so I guess thats what I would pick (seriously, I dont think I can smell, if I can then its really really really weak)
#27
Smell, to me thats the least important of senses, then if someone farts I don't have to know about it

But without smell, you won't be able to taste food. I would die if I couldn't smell my food. Anyway, farting is hilarious.

Taste, as you can still have a hint of the taste if food through the smell of it. Technically, your taste buds depends on your smell. Next time you eat, plug your nose. Doesn't exactly taste like anything, does it?
#32
Taste. You can still taste food, but it would be slightly weaker. Plus, If you were on a desert island and had nothing to eat, you could cut out your tongue and eat anything you wanted
#34
i'd probably lose my sense of smell. its pretty much gone anyway. ive got a buddy who's never had a sense of smell at all. he had an MRI done, and it showed nothing as to why he cant smell. except that he had a spider shaped cyst on his frontal lobe.

The sense of sensing the presence of another human being. Y'know, like when you can tell someone's staring at you or standing right behind you without having to look.
#36
Taste. Smell is actually responsible for most of the sensations with taste. Not determining whether something is bitter, sour, salty, or sweet's not that big a deal compared with the other losses.

I do agree completely. However, I have a Psychology teacher who was telling us that her husband can't taste ot smell, and she said that he does still get satisfaction from foods that are sweet, and other things, although not as much. Our saliva gets thicker when we eat sweet foods, and there is also some pleasurable sensation from swallowing our food.
