Why is sensitivity so important to the Wing Chun style?

It is not as if, the most sensitive opponent wins a fight; or perhaps they do?

Is to be sensitive an advantage or a disadvantage for a fighter?

What other martial art style uses sensitivity as an important aspect to fighting?

Sensitivity is often looked upon as a sign of weakness and not a strength; could Wing Chun be an exception to this assumption?

I think what is meant by "sensitivity" in Wing Chung is especially referred to in the "sticking hands" exercises, with the connection to the other person. You have to be able to sense the pressure from the other person to know where they are going, and then be able to react and defend or counter.

Would this sticking hand practice work against precision strikers that don't stick to their opponents with contact pressures, but only strike at targets accurately?
