Testing for High Sensitivity

Developed by Elaine Aron, who wrote the first popular book about the topic, The Highly Sensitive Person, the self-test is a gentle tool. Based initially on research and interviews with many people, the self-test is in the form of a short questionnaire. On Elaine’s website there’s an online version of the self-test (and a test for assessing a child’s high sensitivity).

“But frankly, no psychological test is so accurate that you should base your life on it. If only one or two questions are true for you, but they are extremely true, you might also be justified in calling yourself highly sensitive.”

~ Elaine Aron
