    Yes, but this does not come natural to either one.

    Yeah... yeah... everyone voted no because they thought hypersensitive was something deragatory...

    I'd be complimented if someone said I was hypersensitive to pure thought...that'd mean the same thing as 'very analytical and is or has potential to excell at pure reason'...

    I dont need for others to compliment me in order to feel good for myself, or to insult me in order to be aware of my own weaknesses. I am well aware of them on my own. This is much more than you could ever hope to be able to claim.

    That last line seems like a very emotionally hypersensitive response.

    I'm stunned. Since that response was completely irrational I believe that we might have detected a little hypersensitivity in feeling there.

    Don't tread on me...

    BW, I apologise for what was a completely unnecessary and unhelpful comment.

    I don't consider myself hypersensitive, but probably come across that way. I keep everything bottled up, then someone says something insensitive on a day when everything else is going wrong, I go off on them. Even though that same thing on any other day wouldn't phase me. If they apologize sincerely or explain what the mean/how it wasn't insensitive I might forgive them. Though I will forgive them as I tend to be guilty over nothing. I'll forget to do something for someone that I said I would and even if I don't like the person I will make it up to them.

    "Hyper" means "overly."
    There is no such thing as separation from God.
