I'm extremely emotionally sensitive. It's a double edged sword. While I tend to experience emotional pain to a higher degree it also makes me keen on where emotional vulnerabilities are in other people, allowing me to shoot or soothe them with pin point accuracy. It makes me intuitive, understanding and emotionally wise. This is of course at the cost of pain I tolerate and struggle with. I do not trust easy to protect my own vulnerabilities. Pain has always been my best teacher as it has also been my strongest adversary.

That was well-written.

Not overly. I'm good at reading moods and can usually tell how the people around me are feeling in an immediate sort of way quite accurately, but I'm clueless when it comes to digging any deeper than that, and am usually pretty apathetic about it. Sure, I'll help them feel better if I can, but it's not so much because I sympathize, but rather because happy people make for a better atmosphere, and being nice is a good feeling.

I also have a habit of accidentally saying mildly insensitive things. I never mean them to be offensive (I like to be liked), but being of an easygoing and relatively unemotional nature, I can be taken by surprise by how strongly people feel about certain topics. I tend to assume that other people are as interested in different perspectives on things as I am, when many are more concerned with taking action on matters, and don't like me throwing wrenches in their ideology by way of casual discussion. My opinions come across as stronger than they are: I just tend to favor contending with what the people around me are saying, because that helps me to understand their opinions better.

sensitive person not so much but in some cases very.
When I see beautiful things I can react, and since my eyes are quite bad now (not the vision) they can react as well sometimes very much (and thats without emotions).

I also have a habit of accidentally saying mildly insensitive things. I never mean them to be offensive
yeah
else I can be way too insensitive about what I say, and how to feel.

Nope. But I'm not insensitive either.
Well more like I try not to be. But I come off as insensitive more often than I should :/

I used to be a lot more sensitive when younger but have become more jaded with just life experience. I tend to still flinch in converstions for example: I like you a lot but.................. This food is delicious but......................... The movie was really good but.............................
I not a big fan of the set-up conversation hit you with compliment then bam.................................. so my sensitive spidey sense is becoming more dull

Depends largely on what you consider sensitive.

There is an easy way to answer this.

Did you cry after watching Clannad AS, Angel Beats or Plastic Memories?

I did, for all three.

I'm about as desensitized as it gets. So no. If I didn't get a reaction from the shit I've seen in my childhood, I doubt anything will.
