High Sensitivity

When I talk to others about the term ‘(high) sensitivity’ I get the most diverse reactions. They vary from reactions like “I have never heard of it” to “In life you need to be tough, otherwise you will go down!“. There is also confusion about how to approach (high) sensitive people: “Do you have to treat them like a raw egg?“, or “Can is to be cured?

Scientific research shows that 1 in 5 people is high sensitive. This means that their system which absorbs stimuli is more sensitive. As a result (highly) sensitive people receive more information. As a natural consequence they can also become over-stimulated more quickly. And that, in turn, can lead to discomforts such as stress or physical complaints.

The symptoms of such discomfort can easily be confused with social anxiety, ADHD or depression by those who are not familiar with (high) sensitivity.
