  • The ability to appreciate and react to the emotional state of another; contra, the intellect. Akin to empathy, but different in that an empathetic person can enter the other's emotional state while the sensible person recognizes it.

    I still, in presence of life... have reactions — as many as possible... It's, I suppose, because I am that queer monster, the artist, an obstinate finality, an inexhaustible sensibility.--Henry James
