While some teenagers may not acknowledge the fact that they are being insensitive in face-to-face conversations, some of the behaviors they exhibit can be considered as insensitive. (The being said, some of the behaviors defined can also be defined as being disrespectful--the identification of the behavior as insensitive or disrespectful lies with the individual's identification.)

1. When a person does not look at someone in the eye, one could consider it insensitive.

2. When a person does not really listen to appeals being made by another person it can be considered insensitive.

3. If a person does not recognize the feelings of the person they are speaking to (for example, not feeling sorrow if they have made someone cry), they could be considered insensitive.
