Yeah, I'm overall very sensitive. I tend to be very nice to people and avoid hurting them whenever possible. At the same time, sometimes I take what other people say and do to me too seriously, so I'm also sensitive in that regard.
But hey, how can any guy who has and sleeps with a teddy bear not be sensitive?
But that's not to say I lack empathy. I care about things. A lot of things to a great extent. I just have trouble relating to people on emotional levels, so in that regard I'm extremely insensitive, but I don't mean to be.
Well, there's not really an option which describes me, so I didn't vote. And you also don't explain whether you mean sensitive to what other people say to you, or sensitive to other people and their feelings.
I think that sometimes I can be accused of horrendous double standards. I have to be in a very specific state of mind to be able to receive criticism well, yet I don't seem to be able to understand that in others. When it comes to especially sensitive subjects for others though, I'm very willing to take a step back, and will regard it with solemn honesty.
The thing I've found though, is that people who have suffered a death in their family, or are suffering from a disability or illness, are often surrounded by people feeling sorry for themselves, so I do quite regularly make jokes or am especially silly/cheery around the person. And most of the time it goes down well. But to an outsider, who wasnt privvy to the dynamics of our relationship, they'd say "Omg that boys grandfathers just died and she said....... omg how rude/nasty/insensitive!!!"
My sensitivity is a bit of a mixed bag, thanks to having a dissociative disorder. I am reasonably sensitive. I do try to give a damn, but sometimes (well, many times) I have difficulty expressing myself clearly when it comes to emotional situations.
I'm not really sensitive. I'd say I don't really have a conscious for a lot of things. Also, I'm kind of self centered. It doesn't exactly mean I don't care though. I'll listen to what you have to say if you tell me, and I might not seem that interested, it's just that I don't have anything to say to related to it.
I'd say that compared to most of my male friends, I am definitely sensitive. I like to think that I'm quite in touch with my emotions, and I guess that can mean being at least somewhat sensitive at times. By sensitive, I don't necessarily mean that I cry a lot or am easily offended or anything, more so I'm emotionally aware and enjoy deep emotional conversation. As far as being sensitive to what others say about me, I've certainly learned to have thick skin by this point, and my individual sensitivity is expressed internally nowadays. Also, I like deep emotional relationships where I can also express a lot of sensitivity.
