Il est important d’identifier son hypersensibilité, afin de mieux respecter et prendre soin de cette partie de soi.

Êtes-vous un hypersensible:

-Est-ce que vous avez tendance à faire l’éponge avec les émotions des autres?

-Etes-vous hyper sensible aux remarques et critiques des autres?

-Est-ce que vous avez tendance à aider les autres parfois même au dépend de vous même?

-Etes-vous très prevenant avec votre entourage, au point d’oublier vos propres besoins ?

-Est-ce que la colère des autres vous affecte de manière forte?

-Avez vous tendance à éviter le conflit?

-Est-ce que vos relation amoureuse sont très intenses et les ruptures très compliquées?

-Est-ce que parfois vous vous coupez de toutes vos émotions afin de vous protéger?

-Est-ce que on vous a souvent dit que vous êtes trop sensible?

-Êtes vous très sensible aux images et aux filmes qui contiennent de la violence ou de l’injustice?

Si vous répondez “oui“ à ces questions, alors il y a des chances que vous soyez un hypersensible.

Dans le passé on critiquait les enfants ou les adultes hypersensible. On leur disait qu’ils étaient trop sensible.

Aujourd’hui il y a de plus en plus de groupes de forum qui les réunissent. Les hypersensible ont leur place dans notre société.

Vous pouvez en coaching apprendre comment vivre bien dans notre société en tant que personne sensible et très empathique.

Vous pouvez apprendre à vous protéger tout en vous ouvrant au monde extérieur.

Elaine Aron La scientifique qui étudie les hypersensibles.

Dear Highly Sensitive Person (HSP)

…or anyone raising a highly sensitive child (HSC),

Welcome. I’m Elaine Aron. I began researching high sensitivity in 1991 and continue to do research on it now, also calling it Sensory-Processing Sensitivity (SPS, the trait’s scientific term). I never planned to write any self-help books, but those who have this trait seem to gain a great deal from knowing about it.  You can find my books here.

If you find you are highly sensitive, or your child is, I’d like you to know the following:

  • Your trait is normal. It is found in 15 to 20% of the population–too many to be a disorder, but not enough to be well understood by the majority of those around you.
  • It is innate. In fact, biologists have found it in over 100 species (and probably there are many more) from fruit flies, birds, and fish to dogs, cats, horses, and primates. This trait reflects a certain type of survival strategy, being observant before acting. The brains of highly sensitive persons (HSPs) actually work a little differently than others’. To learn more about this, see Research.
  • You are more aware than others of subtleties. This is mainly because your brain processes information and reflects on it more deeply. So even if you wear glasses, for example, you see more than others by noticing more.
  • You are also more easily overwhelmed. If you notice everything, you are naturally going to be overstimulated when things are too intense, complex, chaotic, or novel for a long time.
  • This trait is not a new discovery, but it has been misunderstood. Because HSPs prefer to look before entering new situations, they are often called “shy.” But shyness is learned, not innate. In fact, 30% of HSPs are extroverts, although the trait is often mislabeled as introversion. It has also been called inhibitedness, fearfulness, or neuroticism. Some HSPs behave in these ways, but it is not innate to do so and not the basic trait.
  • Sensitivity is valued differently in different cultures. In cultures where it is not valued, HSPs tend to have low self-esteem. They are told “don’t be so sensitive” so that they feel abnormal.

You are definitely not alone. For example, tens of thousands of people have subscribed to the newsletter, Comfort Zone, offered here. If you want to know more about sensitivity, I invite you to click on the links at the top of the page and explore this site.
