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 never sip an anonymous “potion”, given by an anonymous man, which would make most of my senses dull. Nah! Why is that so? The answer is simple, in fact there are multiple reasons for me to do so.
First of all, taking something from someone unknown, and then ingest it, with a full blow risk of losing most of my senses is not a good idea for a pessimist like me,
Secondly, this list doesn’t have the sense I would like to sharpen, i.e, mind or to be more accurate, co-relating stuff, and using common sense, so this potion is not a good idea for me, I am perfectly happy with my senses. All I want to sharpen is my mind, and that for improving myself in my studies and life as well, so this potion is no use for me.
To me it is always half empty. I am an extremely pessimistic person and can assume the worst of the happenings in seconds. But from a general point of view, what matters is not how much the glass is filled, the thing that matters is, that what is the length of the glass and that what is in the glass, water, poison, or strawberry milkshake (my personal favourite;))?
Describe a little thing — one of the things you love that define you worlds but is often overlooked.
Its not just about one or two little things which define me. Actually I am a person to have a habit of carrying a little bag of some important things everywhere and these important things vary from place to place.
How they define me? The answer is simple, I am known amongst my friends to carry “IMPORTANT JUNK” all the time. For instance, I carry a small pouch within my bag in the university having my University cards, some important documents, a mirror, and a lip balm. In a party or a family gathering, I always have a few cosmetics and always a few things I never use, but carry with them all the same.
