I've always been keenly aware of both sound
and color. I am extremely sensitive to vibrations, in people, in the air.
I have sensed and predicted earthquakes before
occurrence for example.
I think this sensitivity to noise/sound is
part of my need to create my own music. I feel
others don't make the exact kind of music my
soul needs to provide inner balance.
Composition for me is truly an effort to
self-heal something that feels "off".
For years I was underly sensitive to smells.
I was a window decorator for a dept store and had
to enter the windows through the perfume dept
storage area and it would knock others over to
walk through it and I didn't notice it at all...
but thats not the case any more. I have opened
up all my senses more keenly in the last twenty
years.

Does 6th sense count? ;\)

I have always had excellent vision, especially comparatively, nowadays, when so many people have glasses.

Absolutely! 6th sense definitely counts.
I make my living using my 6th sense.
I also have unusually good peripheral vision
and can still read without glasses at the
age of 57.

My eyes have gotten bad in the last 6-7 years. (My sister got the good eyes.)

But my hearing, touch, and smell are finely tuned to near the ability of someone with a handicap in one of the other areas. (So, I can hear as well as a blind person, etc.) My taste isn't so great, or at least, if it is, I don't place much stock in it. ;\)

My best "ability" is probably my body-mapping ability. I am, for some weird reason, unbelievably atuned to my own body. I can change and adapt fine-toned movements by the smallest amount and actively be aware that I have done it. (It comes from my martial arts background as well as my coach parents who introduced me to every sport imaginable as soon as I could walk.) I learn physical things in days that it takes the "average person" weeks or even months to learn. (Unfortunately, it still takes me weeks to "get it in my system" because I can adapt so quickly... in other words, I can adapt out of the "right way" as easily as I can adapt into it. So, it's a double-edged sword. ;\) )

My senses are very good but not exceptional for my age.
