I really hated SHURE...

I had to scream in that thing to give me something. Idk I had a cheap one though...

Now I have RODE NT1 and it is much better.
I never understood what the thing with all those SHURE mics was.

Although I am a noob there was probably something I was doing completely wrong. Either way very annoying to work with them.

Sensitivity is sensitivity. If the mic is not picking up the person next to you very well, it is not very sensitive. That means it won't pick you up very well either. Which means you will have to turn it up louder. Which means it will start picking up the person next to you more.

Some mics are more directional than others. Polar pattern is polar pattern. It doesn't change because the mic is more or less sensitive.

There are some differential mics, they are often arrays and are designed to favor close sounds over far. They are useful in things like phones and radios, and certain really high volume live situations. Not so common in the studio.
