    My kid had this as school homework.
    I thought it was interesting.
    If you had to choose one of your 5 senses to give up, which one would it be? and why.

    List them from most important to least, the last being the one you would give up.

    Your 5 senses are
    Touch
    Sight
    Taste
    Hearing
    Smell


    Mine would be:
    Sight
    Taste
    Touch
    Hearing.
    It would be hard to get along without, but I could do it.

    IMO the other senses compensate when you lose your hearing.

    Ask me again when someone in the house farts. It will not be me. Royalty and I don't fart.


    edit: To include all senses.

    I can give you the order in which I don't want to lose my senses if that helps.

    Sight
    Hearing
    Taste
    Smell
    Touch

    It's not that I want to lose touch, I don't. It's more a case of if I had to chose one I think that's the one I would miss least. Probably because it's the one that my brain filters out most.

    Be aware of sitting on your seat, your clothes touching your body, your foot on the floor. Up till a moment ago you weren't even aware of those sensations. I know the same can be said for other senses, but I think it's more so for touch.

    I'd rather someone take off my arm than lose one of my senses. Actually... could it just be a finger if absolutely necessary? I like my arms too. I treasure the gifts I have, never take them for granted!

    From most important to least:
    Sight
    Hearing
    Taste
    Touch
    Smell

    You could get along without it, yes. So I can see why it is the practical answer.

    However would you chose never to hear your child's voice again, or listen to music, or the sound of rain on your roof whilst you are inside, warm and cosy.

    Surely the question isn't what is the least useful, it what you are willing to lose.

    JP, could you get along without feeling your child's hand in yours, the feel of a kiss or hug. The feel of a warm blanket on a cold day? Thats why this question is so good, it makes you glad for what you have.
