A human sense is simply defined as a unique way for the brain to receive information about the world and the body. As per the definition, there are twelve senses.

*Sense of sight

*Sense of sound

*Sense of touch

*Sense of taste

*Sense of smell

#Sense of balance (Equilibrioception)

#Sense of temperature (Thermoception)

#Sense of orientation in space (Proprioception)

#Sense of pain (Nociception)

#Sense of body functions (Interoception)

#Sense of movement (Kinesthesia)

#Sense of the passage of time (Chronoception)

Aristotle, who wrote separate chapters on vision, hearing, touch, smell, and taste in his book De Anima, is widely regarded as the originator of the five basic human senses principle.

No Google Maps please!

A circle ramifying four roads, each going in a different direction, is common.

Some people are always perplexed when turning in a circle on the road toward their destination.

I’m one of those people who gets lost trying to follow their route because of heavy traffic.

All of the roads are in good condition.

Furthermore, it is our choice whether they are good or bad.

You frequently encounter dissecting roads in life that put your decision-making ability to the test.

In the absence of telescopic data, your decision is generally based on speculation.

The road not taken is always paved with appealing possibilities.

You will be happy if your second option succeeds in life.

However, if your expectations are not met, you paint a charming picture of the road not taken.

Let’s learn from each other

Preventing a heart attack

Women can prevent heart attacks by crying. Their emotional vulnerability is the most noticeable feature of their anatomy. They never take anger, grief, or deception into their hearts, instead releasing the negative emotion through tears.

Ability to smile in times of adversity

Men in distress become angry or depressed, but women can still smile. During times of crisis, they can relax their minds and make better decisions. Because of this, they outperform their male counterparts as army commanders.

Power of Observation

Women have a better color sense and can see things men can’t. They have a fantastic photographic memory and can easily recognize a stranger’s face in a crowd. They can notice minute details in people’s facial expressions in a split second and remember them later.

The line between ego and self-respect is razor-thin.

We often accuse others of having ego, but for ourselves, we call it self-respect.

Others are expected to be humble and accommodating; otherwise, they are labeled egoists.

It is possible for self-respect to be bent for a good cause.

Men of high status believe that taking public transportation is below their status.

When they cannot use their own vehicles, they happily descend to the level of the common man.

If ego dominates their mind, they will justify their actions, regardless of the consequences.

Thus, ego overpowers our mind like a ruthless dictator. It makes us stubborn and harms our prospects. We only realize our mistake when the situation goes out of control.

Ego prevails rigidity and blocks our understanding, whereas self-respect makes us flexible and sensible.
