Are redheads more emotionally sensitive?

Are redheads more emotionally sensitive?
We already know that redheads are more sensitive to hot and cold, and need more anesthesia, and have a higher pain tolerance. But could redheads also be more emotionally sensitive?

Redhead Autism Link?

She begs to differ, as someone recently told her they would want to be with her if they were biking at night because she is so pale.
