Wow, so far that's 26% 'normal sensitivity', and 74% 'highly sensitive'. (from 31 results)
That's a much higher proportion than she found in the general population. Though... I think perhaps more sensitive people than less-sensitive people would click on a survey saying 'How sensitive are you?'!!! Which kinda skews the results making this not a proper scientific survey - for it to be proper, we'd need a completely random selection of bendy folk, as this is '74% of internet using, HMSA site visiting people who chose to click on a sensitive person survey are highly sensitive' rather than '74% of bendy people are highly sensitive'. Make sense? Ask me again if it doesn't!
I did expect it to be higher for that reason... But I didn't expect it to be this high at all!!!
If you scored low, that doesn't make you a b***h!
Not at all. This is more about sensitivity to stimulation (tee hee) than sensitivity to others feelings, and as we're all different, it doesn't really say anything about how sensitive we are to others feelings just from this test. In fact, I remember in the book it explained that actually, the most highly sensitive people can be the most insensitive to others feelings, because when they get 'over-stimulated' they just don't have the capacity to pick up on and respond to those subtle clues from others, making them insensitive. And some highly sensitive folk can 'block' out further stimulation, including sensing other peoples feelings if you see what I mean. So a low score does not in any way mean 'insensitive'... The book explains that better!
