The traditional five senses are sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste. Humans are considered to have at least five additional senses that include: nociception (pain); equilibrioception (balance); proprioception and kinaesthesia (joint motion and acceleration); sense of time; thermoception (temperature differences); and possibly an additional weak magnetoception (direction), and six more if interoceptive senses are also considered.

1. While your other four senses (sight, hearing, smell, and taste) are located in specific parts of the body, your sense of touch is found all over.  2. Your sense of touch is found all over because it originates in the bottom layer of your skin called the dermis.
