Touchpad Sensitivity

When I check the "tap to click" option I experience a very, very sensitive touch reaction that drives me crazy. I turned the sensitivity to slow, with no success. Any suggestions, other that go back to using the bar?

You know, it's no more sensitive than all the other mbp's though. And that's exactly the problem; the MBP were too damn sensitive too. I don't know how many times I had to go back to the previous page in the browser due to inadvertent clicks. The only solution is to change your touchpad habits. Keep your hands away from the touchpad until you're ready to click.
