About This Quiz

Superheroes are fun to watch on the big screen, but when it comes down to it, there are many people with enhanced abilities in our world already! From super sniffers to extraordinary hearing, there are plenty of people in our real life that have super senses. 

One of the most interesting super senses that exist is called synesthesia, where various senses and thoughts are associated with other senses as well. This means that for individuals with this neurological condition, sometimes the number four gets associated with the color blue, and sometimes listening to a drum beat can smell like bacon. 

Whether or not you listen to bacon-scented music, you are very likely to have one or two senses that are naturally stronger than the others. By knowing your strongest sense, you can develop it further to give you a secret superpower. For example, those with great hearing can train themselves to hear further by paying attention to what they hear. This can either become a great party trick or a career asset as you develop your sense further and further. Someone with a great sense of taste can find a great fit in a career of wine-making or ice cream tasting.
