Sensitivity is a gift and the people who possess it are the bearers of a precious asset that is not acquired through study, even if it can be refined through experience, and in this sense they have always existed throughout history, and perhaps will continue to exist. However, while it was appreciated or at least found space to manifest itself in a society still on a human scale, as was the pre-industrial one (even with all its undeniable limits), it would seem that today it has become superfluous and that no one , regret his gradual disappearance, as the world could very well do without it.
The virtues of the soul that are most appreciated and praised today are practical intelligence (even if separated from an overall assessment of problems), determination in pursuing one’s goals (without having too many scruples), self-confidence (regardless of ‘exact evaluation of one’s own value), mental flexibility (pushed to the point of accepting the worst compromises), ease in any circumstance (up to the most questionable forms of exhibitionism and narcissism).
Sensitivity is among the non-essential qualities. What would the citizen of the third millennium do with it, all intent on conquering his own social space, carving out his own slice of visibility, of success (even economic), of external gratification? In a world that is not interested in ends and values, but that aims almost exclusively at solving practical problems, what can sensitivity serve, a gift that cannot be spent in quantitative terms?
We forget that sensitivity is the basis of artistic creation, of the intuition of great scientific problems; and above all that it constitutes an indispensable factor for the harmonious coexistence of individuals within society. Because once stripped of it, any human group ends up continually generating frictions and tensions that it is very difficult to control and defuse.
Sensitivity is that gift which pushes a friend to come forward as soon as he senses the existence of a difficulty, which solves the misunderstandings amicably, before they degenerate into hateful and prolonged grudges; that puts others at ease, in situations where they feel exposed and defenseless; which melts old and new tensions in a smile, bringing a gentle note of freshness and lightness; which opens its eyes to the enchanting spectacle of the world and makes even the most distracted hearts participate in it.
Sensitivity is the gentle hand of a woman who adorns a bare and bare room with a vase of flowers, bringing a note of color and warmth to her. Sensitivity is also the right word pronounced at the right time, as well as affectionate and participatory silence, when there are no words appropriate to the situation.
Sensitivity is knowing how to enjoy the little things, the small joys, and pass the secret on to others too, softening the harshness and treating the wounds. Sensitivity is the attitude of delicacy and profound respect with which the I relates to you, always seeing in it a subject of equal dignity and never a simple means.
The person endowed with sensitivity possesses an additional wealth, which enables him to grasp aspects of reality which escape others, thus incessantly nourishing his own profound humanity.
