In person, I come across as a cheerful extrovert. But I've long been bothered by traits I viewed as signs of immaturity: Being in the spotlight makes me feel "depleted" and "wired" at the same time (I used to teach evening classes that ended at 9 PM, but afterwards I couldn't get to sleep until 1 AM!). If I happen to read a horror story (true or fiction), or see a frightening or violent picture, it haunts me for days. I can't stand loud noises: I once went to the Chinese New Year parade in San Francisco, and after a couple of hours of firecrackers I was a nervous wreck. Although I enjoy being around my friends and co-workers, I spend most evenings holed up with a book or writing in my journal. And I prefer to travel, and go to concerts and museums, by myself rather than with a friend. So I found this book very enlightening: not only did it explain why I have these reactions, but it gave me a more positive view of them. I found the book somewhat repetitious: she makes most of her points at the beginning, and from then on she just reiterates them; on the other hand, if I were the parent of a child or adolescent with these traits, I'd probably find her discussion of HSPs at various life stages more useful. But in general the book is very helpful, and I'd recommend it to anyone: HSPs who want to feel better about themselves, and non-HSPs who want to understand their fellow human beings better.

E. Aaron hat - als selbst Betroffene und ausgebildete Psychologin - einen Meilenstein geschaffen.
Mit viel Wärme aber auch wissenschaftlichem Scharfsinn beschreibt sie die "Highly Sensitive Persons", jene Menschen mit feinen Sinnen für Unterschiede und Eindrücke. Aber auch jene Menschen, denen vor allem heftige oder neue Reize schnell eine Über-Erregung bescheren.
Dieses Buch hilft Betroffenen sich selber zu verstehen, ihre Begabung als solche zu erkennen, aber auch zu verstehen, warum sie sich manchmal (oft) so belastend auswirkt. Warum die Umwelt oft so mit Unverständnis reagiert und sich der Betroffene (schon als Kind) als fehlerhaft, "zu empfindlich" oder gar krank/gestört empfunden hat. Schließlich hilft das Buch dann auch, mit dieser Fähigkeit schonend umzugehen und sich im Zweifelsfalle zu schützen.
Angehörigen, Therapeuten, Lehrern sei dieses Buch ebenfalls wärmstens ans Herz gelegt.
Ein Buch, von dem ich sehr froh bin, dass ich es gelesen habe.

If you are an HSP and are having some of the same problems that I am (such as; hating your sensitivity because you feel that you can hardly find anyone to share it with, who will appreciate you and the quality of being sensitive to others needs and feelings as well as your own, you feel overwhelmed by alot of unsensitive people in the world who come off as ignorant and are not sure what to do about it downright short of becoming ignorant yourself or letting the situation go, seeing yourself as have a problem being assertive just because you don't want to hurt someone else's feelings, but they couldn't care less if they hurt yours - I could keep going, but I'll stop.)
Well then this book can help you. I found it very helpful in understanding that I was born a sensitive person, and no matter how much I try to change myself - I can't - I have to accept who I am and not be so hard on myself. This book is not really a self help book in the sense that it will help you to change things you do not like about yourself, it is about accepting the way you are and learning how to incorporate that new found knowledge into your life. This message of acceptance is the major message I got from the book.
Elaine Aaron also gives tips on reframing past events in the new light of looking at your trait as a blessing and not a curse. In the hopes that you will see how this trait has affected you and your reactions to certain situations your entire life, and help you to understand and accept those reactions and find strategies that will help you to cope with and get through those situations when they happen in the future.
Ms. Aaron also identifies characteristics of our society that feed into the misconception that high sensitivity is bad and why this notion came to be. (Don't get me wrong, everything has its good and bad points.) Just becoming aware of the reasons that lead our culture to look at sensitivity as bad is a good step in accepting yourself, that there is nothing wrong with you. Unfortunately there are alot of misconceptions in this world caused by ignorance which inturn feeds into hate.
All in all I really appreciated the book, although I wish it had touched on more specific feelings and how to cope with them, because it would help me not to feel as isolated, alone, and different in a strange and bad sort of way (a oddity of nature in today's unsensitive world), knowing that other people have these feelings sometimes too.
One of the major feelings that she did touch on however was the feeling as though something is wrong w/you because you have always felt different and the reason that you have always felt different is because of your trait. Also, the damage of people telling you "you're too sensitive". People make it sound like it's a bad thing, but everyone needs sensitivity at some point in their life -- understanding, compassion, empathy (actually they all want it but they won't give it). I'll be the first to admit, I don't understand this world -- especially the people in it.

I am the author of the book, "Coming Home: The Return to True Self", which looks under the surface to the heart of personal and spiritual growth. Now, after reading Dr. Aron's book, I realize that I automatically (and unknowingly) wrote "Coming Home" for an audience of HSPs. Now I recommend "The Highly Sensitive Person" to most of my readers, clients, students, and friends. This book brings us HSPs out of the wings and onto center stage by describing us to ourselves in a way that makes us happy to be recognized. It shows us the micro-view and the macro-view of our lives, kindly presenting our strengths and pitfalls in areas such as: relating to the world, socializing, relationships, work, and spiritual purpose.
I have underlined things on almost every page of this book. The stunning array of information is clear, practical, useful, and always supportive. Dr. Aron leaves us HSPs appreciating and understanding ourselves in a way that no one has ever taught us, until now. I can imagine that after reading this book, many overwhelmed, overstressed, and despairing people will realize that, indeed, there is a place in this world for them after all.

The author provides us with a very good understanding of what she calls "highly sensitive persons", but displays "HSP's" in a very stereotypical way, including what "we" like, do, feel and think. This is stupid, since we are all different - "HSP's" or not. I also find the constant rant about how "special" we are quite arrogant, and her explanations of her "trait" sound more like self-deception than truth. I found the book to be very irritating to read at times. Despite the above, the author has some interesting theories, and provides useful insight on a variety of topics relating to "HSP's", our past, and how it shapes our present and future. A final note to male readers: the book is written almost exclusively from a female perspective, which is sad, since male "HSP's" probably suffer even more than their female counterparts.

Reading The Highly Sensitive Person was like being struck by a bolt of lightning. After years of trying to struggle through life, I finally found out why I feel the way I do, and why I react to things differently than most others, and why I am so different. I do not read 'self-help' books normally, but this book was recommmended to me and it put my whole life into persepective. Anyone who has ever been told that they are 'too sensitive' or is bothered/overstimulated by things that most other people ignore or let go, this book will definately help you understand it more thoroughly. I am amazed it took so long for someone to figure out this trait, which is both a gift and a problem for so many of us

My husband bought this book for me because he'd read about it and thought that I might be what Aron terms a "highly sensitive person" (HSP). Like many of the other reviewers here, I was amazed to discover that Aron described, and explained, many of my own traits and experiences: sensitivity to noise and dislike of hubbub (strong characteristics of American culture); stress and fatigue from brief and ordinary, though intense to me, social interactions; the ability to sense other people's moods and what is going on below surface interactions more so than others seem to; and the feeling of being the only one who experiences the world as I do. Aron's study is grounded in solid research and persuasive scientific explanations, as well as in her personal experiences and those of numerous subjects she interviewd. This is a path-breaking book that not only validates the experiences of sensitive people but gives specific, thoughtful advice for understanding ourselves, coping in the world (in a variety of situations, including one's job), and making the most of our senstivity. I suspect that the opinionated rants found among some of these reviews are from non-HSPs who don't get it, because HSPs are by nature more thoughtful (rather than boorish and angry) and would offer well-considered, fair assessments of the book. Thank you, Dr. Aron, for giving us this wonderful book.

This book touches on a topic few people discuss...why some people are so sensitive. I love how the author tries to reassure the highly sensitive that no, they not crazy or "flawed." I tend to be drawn to highly sensitive people; many of my favorite celebrities, including singer Steve Perry & the late Princess Diana are highly sensitive. Also my favorite fictional book character, Mary Anne Spier is very sensitive. Sensitive people fascinate me; they seem to have a surreal, pleasing quality about them that sets them apart from normal people. Maybe that's why many of them feel "odd" or "different." I like how the book encourages the highly sensitive to learn to deal with their strong emotions, not try to hide from them or let their emotions overwhelm them. We need more research & books about sensitivity.

I've read both HSP and Shadow Syndromes and was amazed to see how much more sensitive than me some people are! I only rate as "more sensitive than the average bear" - not quite an HSP, but I've always managed to give myself some down time. Without that I might start "presenting symptoms." Aron brings a lot of things into nice focus about overstimulation and introversion.
Anybody who read and enjoyed this book should also flip through Ratey and Johnson's "Shadow Syndromes." The people who Ratey calls his "shy gorillas" are certainly within the same realm as Elaine's HSPs. Ratey mentions the relation of cortisol levels to mood as does Aron - if these 2 could get together, say, with Howard Gardner and Daniel Goleman, maybe a pretty accurate picture of the varieties of the human animal could be painted!

There are not many books I bother to read over, but I come back to this book at least once a month for advice, encouragement and to better understand myself. As a teenager, I feel that the author did not explain and elaborate enough about these extremely difficult and significant years. Also, a subject on which the author claims she could write a book-she does not even write half a page! But all in all,this book is wonderful to give highly sensitive people a whole new vantage point on themselves. ---If you are a highly sensitive teenage girl (15-17 years old)please write me-I would love to compare experiences and share advice!
