Because I'm the A Type personality, I had to take all the Sensazione tests. With a strong passion for design, from fashion to instructional to educational, I, of course assumed I would have a high aptitude towards visual design. Contrary to this believe, I found it to be my least used sense. I'm not 100% certain I know all my friends' eye colors, I don't look out into the horizon each day and I'm not a big fan of doodling or drawing. I'm a techie though, perhaps this isn't the only assessment that works in today's day and age (the book IS from seven years ago.) Does doodling on a computer count? Or scrolling through apps? Appears to me in this digital age, that's the visual question that needs to be asked in this era.
My hearing, smell, touch and synthesia score was above average though. Make sense to me.
A hum from a plugged in air freshener will drive me crazy;
the candle aroma has to be right depending upon my mood;
I don't want anything on my skin unless it's soft;
and, I can tell you what dot, dot, dot; foosah; and zip visually look like.
So, perhaps our spirit of design or lack of design is not solely based upon one sense. Seems to me we can work to make use of all our senses to design the most aesthetically pleasing version of our world. The Limitless pill may just lie within our minds already.
Time to tap into it.
