Highly Sensitive Children, Dr. Esther Bergsma


1)  Work and the Highly Sensitive Person Here are the results of the research from drs. Esther Bergsma, (Msc) ~ an author, researcher specialist working with HSPs in the Netherlands.    She surveyed 5,500 HSPs from around the world.  Her topics include:  Burnout, Imbalance,  Overwhelm, Effects of Overwhelm and Unmet needs.

And here are a few of my favorite books which I think are helpful in finding a meaningful avenue for work which can enhance your HSP trait.


2) Introversion, Extroversion & the Highly Sensitive Person:  Clearing up misconceptions

HSP Introvert? HSP Extrovert? OR Non-HSP introvert ; Non-HSP Extrovert? There IS a difference.
