    Oh I don't know, do NTs consider themselves hyposensitive in nature?

    I think the real variant here is whether or not responders regarded the term "hypersensitive" as negative, neutral, or positive.

    All of them. I can relate to every meaning of it.

    "Hyper" has "excessive" connotations usually, and that's how I took it personally.

    We all can.

    My point is that most people chose to respond based on a single interpretation of the term, which varied by individual.

    Understandably so. It can also go the way of 'super-' (above/beyond the norm) which seems less negative.

    Oh, that's what you meant. I understood it like sensitive to conflict.

    Sensitivity implies acute awareness of an entity, so in this case I have in mind an acute awareness of emotion.
    Emotion as it relates to conflict is one way to go.
