Sensible VS sensitive: Sensitivity is the degree of response of a receiver or an instrument to an incoming signal. Sensibility is the ability to feel or perceive.
Ex: A sensitive person may be easily offended by an off-color joke, but without sensibility, that same person may be quite unsympathetic to the sufferings of war victims in Iraq.
