so mylotters, sometimes there are various things that keep me up at night as i puzzle through them. this is one of them, our senses. should there be a distinction between the tangible and intangible senses? i mean yes we have sight, taste, touch, sound and smell. well what about a sense of humor, common sense, a sense of honor those but to name a few, where do they fall, into which catergory. okay maybe i need more sleep or whatever, but can someone clue me in as to their thoughts on this?

Hello Mama_bear, I feel we humans apart from these 5 senses have abother sense which is not there in animals. Sense of reasoning. I feel what all you have mentioned an be counted in this category. Only because we have this we are different from other lifeforms I hope you will agree with me Happy mylotting

yeah i do, we have the reasoning capacity that lower life forms do not seem to, then again maybe they do but we shall never know that.

Of course there's five senses. I don't think humor, common sense and such can be categorized as these type of senses. It's on a different group altogether. So does instinct. I think that's more like emotional senses - something that can make us human. Everyone has this. However those other common five senses of sight, touch, hear, sound and smell are not granted to all human.
