Do you sometimes feel like your emotions are so deep and colorful you just can’t compete with them? That’s a sign that you may be a highly sensitive person. But are you really? If so, what does it even mean? Let’s try to figure it out together!
The essence of being a highly sensitive person is closely connected to another important notion: sensory processing sensitivity. This term was created by psychologists Elaine and Arthur Aron back in the ‘90s. They explained that sensory processing sensitivity is basically a temperamental or personality trait that reflects an increased sensitivity of the central nervous system along with deeper cognitive processing of physical, social, and emotional stimuli. Put simply, it means you can have acute responses to pretty much everything from your surroundings to your own thoughts.

– If someone you know is highly sensitive, never make them feel weird or ashamed of how they feel. If you don’t understand something, it doesn’t mean it’s wrong.
– If you can sense the atmosphere in a room as soon as you walk in, you’ve gotta be one of the highly sensitive people! They’re the true kings and queens of nonverbal communication with their ability to detect any slight changes in somebody else’s mood.
– Just one cup of coffee can ruin a highly sensitive person’s day as their heart starts pumping, their nervousness kicks in, and they feel terrible for a couple of hours — and possibly the whole day!
– Every time you go to the cinema or have a movie night with friends, you try to stay as far away from horror movies as you can. Yes, your friends may be disappointed, but you can’t stand this genre.
– As people who feel everything very strongly, highly sensitive people can go to great lengths to make sure they don’t hurt somebody’s feelings.
– As highly sensitive people are naturally more overwhelmed by an abundance of activity, any unnecessarily loud noise cuts through their heads like a buzz saw, preventing them from hearing their own thoughts or concentrating on anything else.
– Constant fights and disagreements create an extreme level of tension, which highly sensitive people feel to the fullest. Sometimes all these emotions can make them physically sick after an especially brutal conflict.
– Someone’s words can make or break a highly sensitive person. If you encourage them, they’ll feel like they can do anything; if you strongly criticize them, their confidence will plummet.
– Highly sensitive people have strong emotions, and their emotions are often affected by other people’s feelings. At times, this can be too much and lead to serious problems like anxiety and depression.
– Have you ever felt especially angry and irritated if you haven’t had anything to eat for a while? That’s hangry for ya!
– Highly sensitive people usually feel very uncomfortable when exposed to bright light. Just like with loud noises, bright lights are considered to be a strong sensory input for them — which they don’t take that well.
– Just as I mentioned before, highly sensitive people have rich and colorful inner worlds. Thanks to that, they were real daydreamers when they were little and probably had more than one imaginary friend.
