Apparently they're often more sensitive than I would have assumed from the description, though, so my impression was wrong.
NTs are like jawbreakers. If you attack them head-on and forcefully you will be met with unrelenting opposition. But if you are patient and apply gentle, even erosion (i.e. lick 'em unmercifully) they will dissolve into a puddle of sweetness. Most people don't have the time or energy to devote to an enterprise like that because the rewards are long-term, and most people aren't.
For me? Tell me that you liked something that I did. Just a sincere appreciation of my efforts will start me to consider the positive effects of fluffy clouds and happy trees.
