Are you a highly sensitive person?

I know I've posted this photo before, but it's such a perfect representation of the differing personalities between my sister and me. We're probably about five and one, respectively, and our facial expressions seem to say it all. I'm sitting there, wide-eyed and totally unafraid to take on the world. Janelle, on the other hand, is completely terrified. She's timid and doesn't quite know what to make of this big place. I'm happy while Janelle seems to be on the verge of tears.

Over the years, those personality traits have stayed with us (is that how it is with you and your siblings?), and that's not to say that one of us is better or more well-adjusted than the other -- we just have different temperaments.

I thought of Janelle when my mom found this sensitivity quiz over the weekend. You check all the boxes that apply to you and then figure out your score at the bottom.
Go ahead and take the quiz. What was your score, friends? Are you a high sensitive person? Were you surprised by your score, or did it pretty much fit with your personality? Look for my score in the comments! xoxo

P.S. More fun quizzes: What's your mental age? What's your personal dialect? Which Golden Girl are you? What's your true color aura? What decade do you belong in?

  1. I got a score of fifteen, so I just qualify as highly sensitive, which seems about right for me.

  2. I got a 6. Guess that makes me insensitive? Ha ha.
    It is what I expected--I'm pretty go with the flow.

  3. i used to be a lot more sensitive and interestingly enough have gotten less sensitive over the years!

  4. Me too, Chic!! Definitely have thicker skin these days!

  5. I was not surprised that I came out highly sensitive!! Now my siblings are just like you - ready to take on the world (to this day) and my brothers are a bit of NO FEAR attitudes (including traveling etc -- I hate going on planes LOL) Very interesting


Your lovely comments make my day so much sweeter! Thanks for stopping by and saying hello!
