The Sensitive Personality

Posted on 27 February, 2015 at 8:00

Chances are, you probably know someone who is sensitive. Or maybe it's you who is sensitive. Many of my clients are "the sensitive type." They tell me others have encouraged or commanded them to "suck it up," or "just stop being so sensitive." They wish they could, too, because it might make life a little easier for them, but they don't know how to go about it. If this describes you, you may be a more sensitive person. If this makes you think of someone you know and love, maybe it will give you some insight into what life is like for her.


Sensitive people relate stories of friends or siblings who experienced a similar situation to theirs, but reacted in a different way, such as laughing off the incident, confronting the offender, or forgetting about it. But, someone who is sensitive is a strong feeler. This person has trouble just letting something go. This person has a tendency to take things personally, or to perceive a personal attack where one doesn't exist. She may overanalyze a situation or repeatedly replay it in her mind, considering what she said and did and what she should have done instead. She also may be inclined to cry easily when others don't. Sad or poignant stories affect her deeply, and she has difficulty putting them out of her mind. This person may also experience sensitivity in other ways. She may have sensitive skin, or a sensitive stomach. She may tend to react more intensely to medication or to get sick more often. She may have more allergies. She may tire faster than others.


Sensitivity doesn't have to be a bad thing. We need all types of people in the world. The sensitive type tends to be perceptive and intuitive. This person often can tell when someone is having a hard time or a bad day, and is likely to be empathetic. She tends to be tuned in to others. She is more aware of her surroundings. She is extremely considerate, usually putting others before herself, sometimes to a fault. She may say that she feels disrespected or like people walk all over her.


So, how do you deal with sensitivity? How do you let things just roll off your back? Check out my next blog to find out.

All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you might fix if you happen to werent too busy looking for attention.
