“Your CNS is sensitive
So is your heart
and mind as well
You feel really stimulated
by what is happening around you”
All of us have some or another characteristic feature. One such feature which you may identify with is being Highly Sensitive. What does being Highly Sensitive mean? It involves the mental action of deeply understanding stimuli, thought process, acquiring knowledge more comprehensively. Elaine Aron is the author of The Highly Sensitive Person “published as an extensive research in 1996 which states that traits of being highly sensitive should not be considered as a minus or a disadvantage.
Who are Highly Sensitive Persons?
The below list shows the behavior patterns shared by those who are identified as Sensitive include:-
Have deeper thoughts
Highly sensitive people have a habit of thinking too much about the things they are experiencing. They keep processing and rationalizing their thoughts way more than the normal person.
Get flooded with emotions easily
These people have an elaborate range of emotions which they feel and can distinguish between. They tend to be more expressive and have great skills of ‘Empathy’ e.g.:-showing empathy to wounded animals or to anyone who is in pain.
Hesitant decision makers
Due to their elaborative thought process, they are well aware of the merits and demerits of the situation. So even small things such as purchasing a chocolate bar is a very big task for them, something which normally does not take too much time for others to decide.
Work best in groups
These people use their sensitivity to gauge and understand others in their group so that they can perform to the utmost level, and work really well as teammates. Sensitive individuals prove to be an asset, as they rationalize and see the pros and cons of a situation and make decisions which prove to be very fruitful from a collective perspective.
