Perception of Colors, Order and Method, Talent for Numbers, Memory of Localities, Memory of Events and Sense of Time.

PERCEPTION OF COLORS
Beautiful colors adorn the world of things and people.  Hence we have the sense of color in order that we may discern their varied hues, and admire their combined glories.

ORDER AND METHOD
The faculty relates us to the universal law of order in all nature.  And it inclines us to have order in business, order in society, order in our home, and order in ourselves.

TALENT FOR NUMBERS
The principle of numbers, few and many, is in the constitution of things.  And this faculty of numbers adapts us to the art of reckoning, and constitutes us arithmeticians.

MEMORY OF LOCALITIES
This faculty is in harmony with the law that everything must be in some place.  It allows us to know where things are, where the event occurred, where the locality is, and where we are ourselves.

MEMORY OF EVENTS
Life is full of events.  Hence we have memories in order to remember events, facts, anecdotes, and incidents generally. A good memory is a good friend.

SENSE OF TIME
There is a time for everything.  This faculty allows us to count time, to tell when the event occurred, and gives us a sense of passing time as it flies swiftly away.
