Yeah, sight, as I dont feel this is needed for me I have been trained in a few fighting styles which require only sound, not vision. Wing Chun for example and Ninjitsu, I need sound. also because Music is my happy place. haha

I could live without sight. I would be loathe to live without hearing and never hear my daughters' voices. I would be heartbroken if I could never smell their hair after a bath. If I could not touch or feel, I think my life would be bereft as well. I love food and cooking and without taste I'd be horribly depressed. Our worlds are set up from a visual perspective and our lives are centered around what we see, but I actually regard my sight as the sense which carries the least actual meaning in my life. If I could not see tomorrow I would always remember the tthings I have seen thus far. Smells, sounds, tastes, and touches are far more ephemeral. I need them more.

Not the answers I was expecting to see on here. I think I would most like to have sight. I can do without hearing...but then again my mom, sister, and most of her side of the family is deaf and I am taking ASL as my language...so maybe I am biased

In order of importance to me:
So by process of elimination I think I could go without smell. There's tons of scents I would miss, but in comparison to what I would miss without the other senses it would be easier to deal with. Smell does have an effect on taste though but taste was my second to last choice anyway.
Besides, I lose most of my sense of smell whenever I get a cold so I have the most experience with that one already. haha

sight and i could probably live without sound.
me too, i use my sight most often and would adjust fine without hearing. actually i was rendered deaf by a severe infection in my ears once - it lasted about three months. i got a taste of what deafness was really like.
i learned to read lips very quickly.
The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it and ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.
I would have to say that the sense that I use the most is my sense of touch.. imagine going through life without the sense of touch.. how hard it would be to write... to type.. to walk..etc..etc.................. the sense that i could do without.. none would be preferrable... but... if i had to choose i suppose it would be my sense of hearing.
