(4) Wed Dec 07 2005 15:16 "You seem like a sensitive person.": Yesterday I met with the new HR Manager (my boss). Can she tell I'm sensitive because she is an HR person? Or is it that obvious? I know I'm sensitive, I just hate to admit it.

Sensitive like "feelings hurt easily" or sensitive like "good empathy for how others feel"?

Well, she was saying she was direct and upfront (I have found this to be true already) so I think "feelings hurt easily"

is direct and upfront really that great of a quality for an HR person? it seems bordering on confrontational... but i suppose she must have done so well so far. I don't think sensitive is a bad thing. Once a professor told me I have a "sensitive intelligence" which I think is one of the nicest things ever said about me.

Well, the next day I got a bit offended over her reaction to a spreadsheet I didn't even create. But I'm not sure that was me...
Rachel, I would say you have sensitive intelligence. I like to think I'm empathetic too, but I know I also get my feelings hurt easily, especially "back in the day".
