Maybe I should have asked if you would wish someone else to be blind or mute.
I bet my husband would say he would want me to be mute! :)

Ohhh this is such a tough question...
I'm a hugeee music fan, so I need my vision & my hearing for it...
If I had to chose, I'd definitely keep my hearing. I'd go CRAZY without music.

The question is on whether you choose to be blind or mute, not deaf.  ;) Since vision is important to you, maybe you opt for mute?

mute:  if you are mute, you can still communicate through things like sign language or writting, but being blind you can't have another source of seeing.  Also, you perceive either 70% or 90% of all things from your vision.  I forget which one ...

Seeing as how I wish to be a voice actor or language interpreter, my voice is very important to me.

However, it's not nearly as much as my sight. So I'd go with mute.

If nothing else, I could at least learn sign language or communicate in other ways to people.

I would rather be mute. You can say a lot with your body language and expressions. I love to read and explore new cities and such. I love the stars and the moon. I would be left with only my imagination if I was blind and I don't think I would be able to live with that. Imagination is a pale comparison to the actual view of the night sky. :P

This one's easy for me: the reason is I have had double ruptured ear drums twice in the past 2 years and have lost my hearing for like 2 weeks! So I would have to say deaf, but NOT mute, because I could still talk and read lips!

I'd much rather be mute. It would be much easier to function and get around than if I was blind.
