Banyen's Description: 

Do you have a keen imagination and vivid dreams? Is time alone each day as essential for you as food and water? Are you “too shy” or “too sensitive” according to others? Do noise and confusion quickly overwhelm you? If your answers are yes, you may be a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP).

Most of us feel overstimulated every once in a while, but for the Highly Sensitive Person, it’s a way of life. In this groundbreaking book, Elaine Aron, a Jungian psychotherapist, workshop leader, and highly sensitive person herself, shows you how to identify this trait in yourself and make the most of it in everyday situations. The good news is that there are a lot of us!

After thinking for so long that you might be the only one, it is nice to have company, isn’t it?

 Drawing on her many years of research and hundreds of interviews, she shows how you can better understand and appreciate yourself and your trait to create a full, satisfying life.

The Highly Sensitive Person offers:

F Self-assessment tests to help you identify your particular sensitivities;

F Ways to reframe your past experiences in a positive light and gain greater self-esteem in the process;

F Insight into how high sensitivity affects both work and personal relationships;

F Tips on how to deal with overarousal;

F Information on medications and when to seek help;

F Techniques to enrich the soul and spirit.

Aron effectively communicates what it means to have the gift of sensitivity (and the implications of this in health-care, education, and business environments for coworkers, etc.), while acknowledging how our culture generally considers sensitivity as if it were a flaw or defect.

Having a sensitive nervous system is normal, a basically neutral trait. You probably inherited it. It occurs in about 15-20 percent of the population. It means you are aware of the subtleties in your surroundings, a great advantage in many situations. It also means you are more easily overwhelmed when you have been out in a highly stimulating environment for too long, bombarded by sights and sounds until you are exhausted in a nervous-system sort of way.
