Would it help to know that Being Highly-Sensitive includes Positive Traits?
Approximately 15 to 30 percent of the population has the gene that makes them highly-sensitive.
We are the people that were called “too sensitive”. At last, a time has come where sensitivity is more often acknowledged as a gift rather than a fault. In fact, the term highly-sensitive is now in use and embraced in the counseling communities and educational communities.
Personally, I think highly-sensitive people are extraordinary because of their high degree of awareness. They feel the undercurrents in a room or a gathering and know when to stay and when to leave. With encouragement to always take care of themselves and to advocate for their own well-being in all situations, they thrive.
Traits of highly-sensitive people include: They…
- become overwhelmed when they have a lot to do.
- find noisy environments chaotic. feel uncomfortable in large public crowds, in a room full of people talking, or when too many things are occurring simultaneously.
- feel uncomfortable when exposed to bright lights, loud sounds, & strong scents.
- startle easily at sudden noises, fast traffic, or other unpleasant surprises.
- often feel upset when watching or reading negative news in the media. Dislikes “shock” entertainment (i.e. intensely scary or violent).
- often feel awkward in group situations and feels unable to be oneself.
- feel hurt easily.
- worries about what others are thinking.
- has difficulty letting go of negative thoughts and emotions.
- feel physical symptoms (stress/headache) when something unpleasant happens.
- has bad days that lead to eating or sleeping too much or too little.
- experience tension or anxiety.
- tend to “beat themselves up” when falling short of own expectations.
- are afraid of rejection, even in relatively minor situations.
- compare themselves with others often (in physical, relational, social, work, financial), and experiences unhappy feelings.
- tend to take things personally.
- get “hangry.”
- choke when they’re under observation.
- are deeply moved by the arts.
- recognize other people’s discomfort.
