How sensitive are you?
Sensitivity can be easily measured with a short questionnaire.
According to research, people tend to fall in one of three sensitivity groups: low, medium and high.
Take the test to find out which group you belong to.
As part of my doctoral research, I investigated sensitivity among teachers. Results show that being highly sensitivity has strengths as well as weaknesses for teachers.
Sensitive teachers reported having more empathy towards their students, but also experienced more difficulties with the challenging aspects of the teaching profession.
Should we understand sensitivity as a continuous dimension that ranges from low to high or as a category, with some people being highly sensitive and others not?
Parenting quality matters for all children, but especially so for children that are more sensitive.
Highly sensitive children are at greater risk to develop behavioural problems than less sensitive children when experiencing harsh or permissive parenting.
