Traditionally, there have been five recognized senses: taste, smell, touch, hearing, and sight. Some add to that list intuition and equilibrium, making seven. Still others add to this list with things like pain and temperature.
However, the first five are the only universally recognized senses. Arguably, the others are either not related to the senses (e.g. intuition), or are simply derivatives of primary senses (e.g., equilibrium, pain and temperature could be said to be just subcategories of touch).
