The question is clear. Are you usually colder than others, warmer than others, or neither.

I am cold sensitive. If the high temperature is below 68 F (20 C), I usually wear a sweatshirt or something long sleeved. Most Americans don't wear a sweatshirt till highs dip into the 50's F (10-16 C).

I'm cold sensitive. The cold goes right through me which I believe is due to being skinny. Heat rarely bothers me.

I don't like heat, but I can tolerate it quite well.

Very cold sensitive... anything below about 5C and my extremities start to feel numb even with heavy clothes. Below about -5C and my core gets really cold.

Heat sensitive. I sweat very easily and hate every minute of it. Fortunately in this cool climate I'm content outside of summer heat waves. Cold doesn't bother me at all, it's exciting rather than uncomfortable.

I'm quite cold sensitive. All this is relative, as a -2C can feel really frigid sometimes, but then a 16C can be complete t-shirt weather, or another -2C isn't cold at all. Moderate heat, like 30C has no effect on me, but above 35C is increasingly uncomfortable. I usually roll up the sleeves on all my shirts if it's more than 14C, but -5C in winter clothes waiting for the bus can be really uncomfortable.

But I don't loathe cold or hot temperatures, I have all of them in my dream climate.

I wish I could choose a both, but since you only give me one choice, I say heat. I don't function well above 90. The irony is that we live in one of the hottest locations in CA, with triple digits routine in summer. I hate it, but at least it's dry heat.
I grew up in Palo Alto, where I recall complaining that it never got hot enough, so now I'm getting my just punishment.
