1. Do you ever wonder if the way you see things visually aren't how other people see them?
I have wondered that. You know things aren't the same. It's like attraction to someone. One will thing they're oh-so-cute. Someone else thinks they're ugly.


2. What kind of sounds are the most annoying?
Cats meowing, bad music, alarm clocks. Many other things.

3. When walking through a store, do you shop with your hands by touching/feeling the texture of things?
Depends.

4. If you could only smell three scents for the rest of your life, what would they be? Lilacs, vanilla, honeysuckle


5. What sorts of things do you savor when eating them?
Chocolate and salt. When I crave anything I try to savor.

1. Do you ever wonder if the way you see things visually aren't how other people see them?
Yeah, sometimes.
But the more I think about it--and the more I cycle the color palette in Photoshop--the more I'm convinced it's not particularly likely.

2. What kind of sounds are the most annoying?
White noise, constant rhythmic beeping or thumping, sustained high-pitched tones, and country music. :P

3. When walking through a store, do you shop with your hands by touching/feeling the texture of things?
Depends entirely on what I'm shopping for...strangely enough, fondling software, for example, doesn't really aid in the decision-making process. But it helps when shopping for clothing, for example...and some foods, I suppose, like fruit.

4. If you could only smell three scents for the rest of your life, what would they be?
Vanilla, garlic, and citrus.

5. What sorts of things do you savor when eating them?
...too ambiguous. By 'things', are we referring to qualities or specific edible items?
In any event, though, the answer is pretty much the same: spices and other flavors.
Rarely does texture play a part in whether or not I savor something, though it can certainly have an effect on whether or not I hate it.
Warmth is often a factor, too; certain foods are best at just the right temperature and can have a soothing effect on my mood.
Juiciness can be a major factor in things, too...I'm a bit of a citrus fanatic, and there's nothing quite like biting into an orange wedge and just getting this blast of juice...

1. Do you ever wonder if the way you see things visually aren't how other people see them?
Kind of. I notice weird aspects of things first that other people don't, maybe.

2. What kind of sounds are the most annoying?
Screechy ones, like the subway and brakes and things. D: Can't stand 'em. And my suitemate having sex into the night. STFU.

3. When walking through a store, do you shop with your hands by touching/feeling the texture of things?
Depends on the store, but yeah, I'm rather manually-oriented.

4. If you could only smell three scents for the rest of your life, what would they be?
Oh, lord. Chocolate, L'Oréal Kids cherry-almond shampoo (no, seriously) and...Clinique Happy, at the moment. ;)

5. What sorts of things do you savor when eating them?
Candy, esp. M&Ms. I let them melt in my mouth. ;)

1. Do you ever wonder if the way you see things visually aren't how other people see them?
I'm sure they're not, since I've made it into my 20s without requiring corrective lenses of any kind, and this seems to be a relative rarity.

2. What kind of sounds are the most annoying?
Incessantly loud ones.

3. When walking through a store, do you shop with your hands by touching/feeling the texture of things?
Er... only with produce. I fail to see how touching/feeling a carton of milk or a box of paperclips would accomplish much.

4. If you could only smell three scents for the rest of your life, what would they be?
I feel that the phrasing of this question frames things a little too broadly. What are we defining as scents? Larger categories like "savory" or "floral", or are we reducing this to something very specific like "hot dogs" or "pineapple"? I could certainly do without bitter or sugary... sour I'm not sure about because I like the smell of lemons.

5. What sorts of things do you savor when eating them?
Things that don't taste nasty. Texture is a huge part of enjoying food as well, so I don't know if this is really exclusively a "flavor" issue.
