Literally, these words are of about the same meaning and strength, the difference depending chiefly upon the connection; for example, a sensible difference, a perceptible difference.3 and Be Sensible, Be Conscious, etc. See feel.3 and Sensible, Sensitive, Sentient. Sensible in its first meaning was passive, but is now quite as often active. As active, it is both physical and mental, and is unemphatic: as, to be sensible (that is, aware) of heat or cold, of neglect or injury. Sensitive means feeling acutely, either in body or in mind. A sensible man will school himself not to be too sensitive to criticism. Sentient is a physiologically descriptive word, indicating the possession or use of the sense of feeling: as, the fly is a sentient being.6. Observant, aware, conscious.8. Sensible, Judicious, discreet, sage, sagacious, sound. As compared with judicious, sensible means possessing common sense, having a sound and practical reason, while judicious means discreet in choosing what to do or advise; the one applying to the nnderstanding and judgment, the other to the judgment in its relation to the will. Sensible, Intelligent, Common-sense. As compared with intelligent, sensible means possessed of the power to see things in their true light, the light of a correct judgment, a large, sound, roundabout sense, while intelligent means possessed of a clear and quick understanding, so as to apprehend an idea promptly and see it in its true relations. The relation between cause and effect is here so close that intelligent often seems to mean essentially the same as well-informed. Where the sense implied in sensible is thought of as peculiarly general or level to the experience, conclusions, or notions of the mass of men, common-sense is, by a new usage, sometimes employed: as, he was a common-sense person: he took a common-sense view of the matter. All these words apply both to the person and to his opinions, words, writings, etc.n. Sensation; sensibility.n. That which produces sensation; that which impresses itself on the senses; something perceptible; a material substance.n. That which possesses sensibility or capability of feeling; a sensitive being.n. In music, same as sensible note. See leading tone.
