Sense of smell, definitely. I am known to have the nose of a bloodhound. I can smell a barbeque from half a mile off, and distinguish correctly what they are cooking. I can also smell chemicals in chemistry that are not supposed to have smells at all. The teacher once told me off for not labelling my beakers of chemicals, and I told her (perhaps I shouldn't have because she wasn't too happy about the answer) that I could distinguish them by smell so I didn't need to label them.

My vision, perfect eyesight. My depth perception is exceptional, it is most useful for driving and backing trailers. Great for going fast, my eyes can easily keep up and keep track of obstacles. I'd hate to sound pretentious, but I'm a good driver, usually.

My sense of smell is only good for bad things, as I have a partially blocked nasal cavity. My sight is good to a point, but being slightly cross-eyed, long-sighted with astigmatism, it ain't gonna be perfect. Hearing is sensitive, and is mostly affected by music. Hearing certain tunes from faraway or in the background is a speciality. I used to be really good at spotting if someone was gay, but that has worn off over time. John Glover, who plays Lionel Luthor in Smallville is gay, and I never noticed. Yet (before it was a media thing to out yourself or someone else) I was always able to tell. Weakest sense has to be common sense. Knowing what the right thing to do is bypasses me for a pastime.

Well I doubt it beats my fashion sense.

Hmm. My strongest sense is sight.

I wish I could have good sight... I am sick of wearing glasses all the time. I can't even get out of bed safely without them on. I want to get laser eye surgery, but I don't think I could be trusted to stay still. I would probably destroy my eyes.

My sense of smell is one of my biggest assets, and it's also my biggest downfall. I smell everything to a magnified degree. If it's a good smell that's great, but if it's a bad one I will get physically sick. It's the reason that I will never be able to own a dog. :( I like them, but their smell is so bad to me that I can't stand it.

I don't quite get what the question means, but if it includes senses other than the 5, mine's imagination. "The Beautiful Mind" lol
Good in visualizations too (geometrical, patterns, eidetic memory). Can visualize exactly an object in my brain just by looking at it once.

I have to say my sight. I don't want to jinks it, but people have always told me that my vision is much better unaided than theirs is with glasses or contacts to help them. Here's hoping it stays that way for a while.
