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?
I will reject the mysterious man’s potion, I feel I need all of my senses working as they should, if any of them is dulled, there will be serious consequences, I have seen people who have hearing loss, it is not easy for them to do their daily work, to help them they get hearing aid, which is not the right substitute because it has its flaws.
Hearing ,taste,touch,smell have their own specific duties, making one super sharp and dulling the others cannot work for me.

Using a potion to sharpen,one of my senses and dull the others,is something I will not do. And the worst part of it is accepting from a mysterious man.No I think I’ll prefer my senses to be normal. So many things can go wrong if I try a potion, which I know nothing about. When we are prescribed medicine by a bona fide physician,we are cautioned about the reaction. Whether our system will work the same as countless others.There is always a percentage of people who have adverse reaction,even though it’s a small percentage.Likewise the potion good or bad mysterious or not will have to be placed in the same category as the regular medicine,prescribed by genuine doctors,who have academic qualification and also have proved themselves worthy of practicing their craft.
When it’s a mysterious man, no one knows about him, it is highly dangerous to try anything he tells me to take. I will not try it,no matter what he says.It is risky to try something that will sharpen one sense and dull the others,is not something I will do.
