All the senses

Friday I was at karaoke, when a person I used to work with showed up. She gave me a very passion hug, like she always does, and then told me how nice I smelled. Over the course of the next couple of hours she must have told me 3 or 4 times that I smelled nice. This got me thinking about all 5 senses. Why do I only use one or two senses when interacting with people. I've come to the conclusion that I need work on all five senses. I'm not selling myself, and really showing people my true value. There are five routes to provide information to the mind.

Sight: this probably is the most used sense. We all know what we like to see as far as visual quatlities. Whether it be skin color, style, body shape, etc. And we all know that if we look better people will respond better to us. I've recently started dressing a lot better and presenting myself with a better image. I recently lost 30 lbs. (I'm 5'8", 165ish) But I think in this area I can go a little further. I usually shy away from looking people in the eye. Even when I sing karaoke I don't make much eye contact. I need to exube more confidence and maybe if I look them in the eye more they will see a stronger, more self-confident person.

Smell: Friday night I was wearing after shave which I don't usually do. I think I will start to wear it more, or maybe cologne.

Sound: I actually do OK on this one, but could definitely talk to people a lot more. Although I don't talk to people much they do get to hear me sing, or play saxophone, so this sense is probably a wash for me.

Touch: This one is a tough one for me. I have always emjoyed touch from females, regardless how little. I love it when a woman will touch your arm when talking to you. Or the hugs between friends. I remember on New Year's Eve seeing 2 different people I hadn't seen in a while, and with both of them after the hugs, somehow my hand had slide down their arm, and my hand had ended out in theirs. In neither case was it intentional, but in both cases it felt nice. It felt reassuring. It was not sexual just comforting. But I almost never make the first move in physical contact, but I think I will start to. Maybe the next time a gal gives me a hug I will deliberately slide my hand down her arm, and put my hand in hers. Or when talking place my hand on her arm.

Taste: This is a tough one. Because you can't really go up and just taste someone. How can I use the sense of taste to further develop my image to others? This has got me stumped, but 4 out of 5 ain't bad.

Touching helps us make a connection with others. I find myself touching others on the arm while talking to them.
