Kind of life-changing. If you've ever been told you're "too sensitive," or ever said it to anyone else, read this. ( )

One of the most invaluable books available for the HSP personality. Clear and precise language to explain this personality type. ( )

At first I didn’t care for this book because I felt I wasn’t an HSP. But, the more I read the more interesting it got.

She divides the world into two classes:
* Impulsive and tough Warriors and kings.
* The more thoughtful, learned priests, judges and royal advisors.
* The balance of these two classes is important to the survival of such cultures. (Location 2256)

Since Goodreads allows highlights from kindle books, I do not need to write long reviews.

Someone suggested this book might give me ideas for my daughter. Elaine Aron is determined to confront and redefine this category of people, since as a group they tend to 'not fit in'. It opens with a test with questions such as: "I am easily overwhelmed by bright lights, strong smells, coarse fabrics, or sirens close by." and "I am conscientious." and "I get rattled when I have a lot to do in a short time." and "When people are uncomfortable in a physical environment I tend to know what needs to be done." Having established the parameters she then gives 'the facts' about being an "HSP" such as that around 20% of the population fits under this definition, that there are obvious advantages in having 'sensitives' in your group, (kind of like the canary in the coal mine), that, however, our present-day culture, still very much an outgrowth of the Indo-European sweep into the west values action-oriented folk more than thoughtful ones. Other cultures (she cites Japan) value sensitive people and have a place for them - as monks, shamans, etc. She then makes a distinction that annoyed me greatly during the entire book, even though I don't disagree and have thought much the same thing, namely, making a division between the warrior-kings (Arthurs) and royal advisers (Merlins). The rest of the book examines the effects of being an HSP - how it impacts childhood, schooling, college, work, relationships.... each chapter covers a bit of new ground, refers back to her main points that being sensitive is a good thing despite the fact that our culture doesn't always accommodate or honor it. Lots of strategies of different kinds, lots of suggestions and encouragement.

The most important point, not new to me, but nicely put all the same is that the sensitive person needs to respect how quickly and easily they become over-stimulated -- and how that can appear to other people, as aloofness, shyness, arrogance. The social awkwardness, lack of grace under pressure can make us look incompetent or even strangely stupid or even possible cheaters in some way (say -- doing badly on a math test after handing in perfect homework) -- some of us actually talk too much when nervous -- or are so inconsistent people don't know what to make of us. Also HSP's tend to be weirdly naive about social machinations, at school and work..... and so easily deceived or passed over for promotions and so on. It is critical therefore to understand yourself, know how you appear to others, and figure out ways around it, ways to work it to your advantage not your detriment.

I heartily recommend it to anyone with these issues and/or who have children with these issues. For one, it will help you feel vindicated about approaching teachers etc. at your child's school, being clear and firm with them about what will and won't work. I plan to buy a couple of copies to donate to my daughter's school -- for the infirmary and for the advisers. And my local library, I think. My reservations are mainly about the chirpy style and the boring format that all of these books nowadays seem to have as if we all have the attention spans of fleas..... A little info, a few anecdotes, a quiz, some exercises, lots of changes in type face, I guess it fleshes it all out into book size when the message itself isn't all that complicated. **** ( )

I believe in aristocracy, though - if that is the right word, and if a democrat may use it. Not an aristocracy of power... but... of the sensitive, the considerate... Its members are to be found in all nations and classes, and all through the ages, and there is a secret understanding between them when they meet. They represent the true human tradition, the one permanent victory of our queer race over cruelty and chaos. Thousands of them perish in obscurity, a few are great names. They are sensitive for others as well as themselves, they are considerate without being fussy, their pluck is not swankiness but the power to endure...
