A ground-breaking look at the power of sensitivity to transform our relationships, career and life, from world-leading experts.
Do you have a heightened sense of empathy? Do you often notice details that others ignore? Do you ever feel overwhelmed in a busy, loud environment?
If you answered yes to any of those questions, chances are you’re a ‘highly sensitive person’, along with one fifth of the population. Highly sensitive people exemplify our most humane traits. They embody not just emotional sensitivity – qualities like empathy, kindness, and concern for strangers – but physical sensitivity too, processing all information very deeply.
Our modern loud and harsh world wasn’t built for highly sensitive people, but their unique strengths make them inspiring leaders, heartfelt caretakers, careful decision-makers and natural-born artists.
Sensitive will shatter the myth that being sensitive is a weakness and celebrate the power of a deeper, more tuned-in mind. Offering a new way of unlocking potential, it will give sensitives – and those who care about them – the tools to be successful in school, work, life and love. Based on more than twenty years of research in neuroscience, psychology, and human genetics, it will be the first book to explore the science of sensitivity.
Sensitivity exists on a continuum and we’re all sensitive to a degree. This book will reveal the power of embracing a soft heart in a harsh world and teach every sensitive to thrive.
