Over twenty percent of people have this amazing, innate trait. Maybe you are one of them. A similar percentage is found in over 100 species, because high sensitivity is a survival strategy. It is also a way of life for HSPs.

In this 25th anniversary edition of the groundbreaking classic, Dr. Elaine Aron, a research and clinical psychologist as well as an HSP herself, helps you grasp the reality of your wonderful trait, understand your past in the light of it, and make the most of it in your future. Drawing on her many years of study and face-to-face time spent with thousands of HSPs, she explains the changes you will need to make in order to lead a fuller, richer life.

Along with a new Author’s Note, the latest scientific research, and a fresh discussion of anti-depressants, this edition of The Highly Sensitive Person is more essential than ever for creating the sense of self-worth and empowerment every HSP deserves and our planet needs.

Reviews

“Elaine Aron’s perceptive analysis of this fundamental dimension of human nature is must reading. Her balanced presentation suggests new paths for making sensitivity a blessing, not a handicap.”
—Philip G. Zimbardo, author of Shyness

“Enlightening and empowering, this book is a wonderful gift to us all.”
—Riane Ensler, author of Nurturing Our Humanity

“Shy people fear being judged or rejected, whereas highly sensitive people have a keen awareness of their environment, frequently becoming overstimulated by it.”
—Self

“If you are easily overwhelmed by noise, chaos, and emotions; perform poorly when being observed; and require time alone each day, there is no need to worry; recent research shows your heightened sensitivity can do you more good than harm.”
—Counseling Today

“The first book that helps readers to identify their highly sensitive trait and to make the most of it.”
—Counseling and Human Development

“Aron combines self-tests with useful, unclichéd advice on stress control and provocative descriptions of research.”
—Fitness

“At book signings, people have come up to her [Elaine Aron] and said, ‘You've saved my life.’”
—San Francisco Chronicle

“Aron's book is not a fly-by-night, self-help tome, but instead a serious effort to explore a subject on which little has been done.”
—Portland Oregonian

“This book is a valuable resource for the HSP, as well as those who are trying to understand the HSP.”
—The New Times

“This innovative psychologist has figured out that the extreme reactivity of a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) can be a good thing. This comes as a relief to people like me—and probably you, too.”
—Pathways
