High Sensitivity

When I talk to people about the term ‘(high) sensitivity’ I get the most diverse reactions. They vary from reactions like “I have never heard of,” to “If you are too sensitive in life you’ll go down!”. I also hear comments like “Do you have to treat them as a raw egg?”, or “Can high sensitivity be cured?”
Scientific research shows that 1 in 5 people is high sensitive. This means that their system to absorbe stimuli is relatively more sensitive. This entails that (highly) sensitive people receive more information. A natural consequence of this heightened information intake can be over-stimulation. Which in turn may lead to discomforts such as stress or physical complaints.
