Quotes on sensibility

Quotes on sensibility. Sensibility is the term that refers to the duration taken to respond to any stimuli. If the thing or person is responding too quick, then it will be called too sensible. If the response is given with a little time, then it will be called less sensible. So, sensibility depends on the response by the particular thing or person. It is found that 99% of the females are most sensible as compared to that of males. We all are human beings, and we all do respond, and the responding duration is the least in the case of all-female humans. That's why they are known to be soft-hearted, highly sensible, and a lot more conscious than the rest of the humans. Sensibility comes from the thinking process, the person who thinks on the edge, will always be less sensitive, whereas, the person having a deep thought, will be highly sensitive.
