Day 2 of the 2020 Empowerment Guide For Sensitive People! Today’s post is by Esther Bergsma, MA, a frequent speaker on High Sensitivity in the Netherlands and also an author, trainer, scientific researcher, and expert on High Sensitivity. She wrote the book Hoogsensitieve Kinderen (Highly Sensitive Children) based on research from over 700 parents, as well as the book, The Highly Sensitive Brain (both are in Dutch). Esther’s purpose is to create awareness about the trait from a more scientific perspective. She speaks to medical professionals, psychologist, teachers, and managers and conducts research on sensitivity in the workplace.
Esther is sharing her expertise on the highly sensitive brain with us because understanding our highly sensitive brain and how it works makes self-acceptance much easier for sensitive people. She has written a wonderful article for us on the relationship between the characteristics and skills of sensitive people and how their brain works. Having the context for our sensitive gifts and challenges is important information that helps us see the sensitive trait as natural.
