Sensitive: The Untold Story
Sensitive - The Untold Story is a documentary based on the work of psychologist and bestselling author Dr. Elaine Aron. In 1991 Dr. Aron identified the innate trait of high sensitivity and conducted fMRI studies that confirmed the findings. Her international bestseller The Highly Sensitive Person  sold over a million copies and her research is published in top-tier peer reviewed journals such as The Journal of Personality and Social Psychology and Brain and Behavior, as well as replicated and extended by other scientists. Dr. Aron found that not only 1 in 5 people are highly sensitive, but the trait occurs in the same percentage in over 100 other species. This trait (found in both men and women) reflects a certain type of survival strategy: being observant before acting.  HSPs think deeply, get easily overwhelmed by intense, complex or novel things, are more attentive to subtleties and have more empathy.
