Pitch sensitivity

Hello guys,

It is interesting to follow this thread and read some statement.

One example is the pitch sensitivity.
I have read many times that due to decreased decalage (a smaller angle or near or at zero angle) and the CG moved rearward is the cause of more senstive pitch control.

I have not read any reason that I can recall.

The hoizontal tail surface has not changed . . .
The moment arm (distance from CG if anyhing is less) is reduced by up to one inch.
The mass distribution is not changed much by the addition of some reinforcement at the fuselage rear end.

So I am trying to figure out what would cause the pitch sensitivity to be so much different.

Is it real or just psychological ?
Does some claim that higher sensitivity just because someone else wrote it ?

I certainly would appreciate a logical reason that explains the reported difference.
