    Question sensitive

    Dear sir/Madam,

    Is it correct to put either the word " sensitive " or " careful " under this definition:

    " someone who cares about others' feelings "

    If yes, which is more suitable?

    can you please put down your name-signature if you're an English native speaker?

    Tank you very much for all.

    'Careful' does not mean this. 'Sensitive' is better.

    Be careful of listing adjectives (careful, sensitive) as 'definitions' of a noun or pronoun ('someone') - or vice versa, eg:

    'Happy' adj. The opposite of 'sad'. Correct.
    'Happy' adj. A person who is not sad. Wrong!
