Responsive to those states of affairs that do (or would) make a difference to "one of us".
If I am a banker and doing my job as a banker, I will be approaching the world from the perspective of a banker and I will be sensitive and responsive to those states of affairs that make a difference to bankers. Furthermore, if I am doing the job of a banker in an ideal way, I will respond only to those states of affairs, and I will automatically, i.e., without necessarily any thought or decision, exclude from consideration any other states of affairs which are of interest only from the standpoint of another status (e.g., a mother, a Baptist, a Republican, a skier).
