You encounter a mysterious man offering you a magic potion that, once sipped, will make one of your senses (sight, hearing, taste, smell, touch) super sharp — but dull the others. Will you sip it, and if so, what sense do you choose?

In this previous post, I had pictured taste but mentioned that is third importance to me after vision and sensation. Now here, the question is more tricky. If asked one which I could compromise, with difficulty I would say I’d let go of smell which according to me is the least important only among the five relatively and not absolutely. However if I could sharpen one and dull all for? I’d chose none. I’d rather have all of them working fine thank super-powering one at the cost of others. That doesn’t make sense logically and practically speaking (even if it was possible in the first place).
