Which of your five senses arouses the greatest emotional response
What of your five senses: sight, hearing, touching, tasting or smelling, arouses you greatest emotional response? Something you see, or hear, to touch - what?
For me it is the sense of smell. I have always instinctively associated certain people with their scents, in particular my family members. And certain other smells have the ability to bring me surges of emotion and nostalgia, even amorous feelings.
It it said that women have a better sense of smell than men and I'm inclined to go along with that. However, do recall being struck with an instant and terrible fear when I sensed a particular smell that had caused me a to fear decades ealier.
I think sense of sight and hearing work together to arouse an emotional response.
I hold hearing among these the most powerful. Just say a word not to the liking of even to the dearest of you and you will face a barrage of retaliatory equivalent and even a long and unending argument over it. Sometimes a few humiliating words make the friction constant for a whole life, such is the power of hearing, the most potent in both ways,good or bad.
For me, I am very sight oriented. For example if I hear a lecture, I am not likely to glean as much information as if I can listen and follow with text. Yes, I would say for me sight arouses the greatest emotional response.
Smell and touch run hand in hand with me. Something that smells so delicious will distract me, and then I'm ripe for the picking! Wait, that sounds a little racy. Just hand me a double cheeseburger and shake my hand and we're good.
For me it would be my sense of sight, especially when I'm looking at the rising or setting sun or a star filled sky. Seeing unbelievable beauty simply takes my breath away.
