Are you a highly sensitive person?
Do you have a keen imagination and
vivid dreams? Is time alone each day as essential to 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, Dr. Elaine
Aron, a 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. Drawing on her many years of research
and hundreds of interviews, she shows how you can better understand
yourself and your trait to create a fuller, richer life.
