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.
Our study examined children’s well-being in the presence of childhood adversities and support provided by their families. The role of children’s sensitivity to environmental influences was investigated as a potential moderator of both the positive and negative effect of the environment on children’s development.
Different cultural views on sensitive behaviour can complicate the measurement of innate levels of sensitivity.
To explore this issue further, we tested the Highly Sensitive Person scale in the most culturally diverse setting to date: the rainbow nation of South Africa.
Our study examined whether brain characteristics of the new-born baby contribute to sensitivity to parenting quality in terms of cognitive development.
