I find it extremely difficult, I usually just tell them to stop speaking to me until they're calm. How well do you guys handle people that you find too sensitive?

I have a pretty low tolerance for bullshit in general. Well, not for fun or funny bullshit, but definitely for stupid and annoying bullshit. So yeah, I don't think I would handle it that well. The sad thing about that is there are tons of people I find too sensitive, although thankfully they seem to either just be a loud minority or largely exist outside my usual circle of interactions.

I usually just tell them to suck it up. And if they continue, I just walk away.

I don't talk to these types of people.

Can you please clarify what constitutes someone being "too sensitive"? I have many possibilities.

Religion & politics are off the table. Besides a few people in my life I stay far away from both those topics. That should solve most problems there.

Other than that I've learned to handle sensitive people well enough. It really depends on the situation and what they're getting sensitive over. So I'm not going to lump them all in one group.

Depends on the situation. ...

I really don't care, but I know my boundaries. I to share a common feeling towards certain things, and in a way some things are better left alone.

If anything strikes me as disrespectful, emotions can turn into a weapon. I'm sure most people have the same mentality So keep poking, or leave it be.

usually, they are the ones that can dish it, but can't take it. Super annoying! Gotta put them in their place. Go big or go home!

Each situation is different so depends on the situation and how i deal with it.

a 3DS solves all problems involving annoying people. Pull it out, plug headphones in, stop giving a shit about whatever they are whining about. Conversing with someone who is angry or upset never works, since that is when people are much less rational, so don't even waste your time or sanity.

(note, a PSP, smartphone, tablet, or anything portable, quick to turn on, and has a decent video game also works. Music devices also work very well too.)
