Sensitivity Quiz Survey Version 2


We have created a version 2 of the sensitivity quiz, taking your feedback, and changing a few of the questions to make it the best it can be!  Click Here to take this new version!

We are still at the early stages of analyzing the data and results and will release more information about what your results might mean. Early indications are showing that from the first version, the average percentage score on this sensitivity quiz is about 80%. With this second version we are seeing about 83% as an average so far. Please note these percentages may change as more data comes in. Stay tuned! Be sure you are subscribed to my newsletter to get updates.

There is exciting news! We are seeing that HSPs who have done personal work on themselves, in therapy*, for example, or even through self-help resources like HSP books and courses have reported that they reduced some of the challenges of sensitivity after learning those important tools. 

One HSP who completed my Brain Training Course had this to say: “Interestingly my score has gone down considerably, and I'm sure it's because of the brain training.”

This gives hope to anyone struggling out there with some of the challenges of being highly sensitive in a modern world that can sometimes be chaotic for a sensitive system. It also correlates with research that HSPs tend to get the most benefit from the use of therapeutic tools.

*Please note, when looking for a therapist, be sure they know about this trait! It’s an important part of understanding your experience.
