Highly sensitive people - are they womb twin survivors?

Many (if not all) womb twin survivors are super sensitive. Elaine Aron wrote a book about being highly sensitive.  According to Dr. Aron's definition, the Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) has a sensitive nervous system, is aware of subtleties in his/her surroundings, and is more easily overwhelmed when in a highly stimulating environment.

I think she is describing womb twin survivors without realising this.

Here she is describing this group - surely, they are the womb twin survivors!

There are other ways to overcome that super-sensitive feeling - it is often self-inflicted. I know. I do it. Or used to. Giving up caffeine made all the difference!

Dr Aron says that sensitivity is not values - how wring she is! It's a wonderful gift! I for one would not be without it. I could not possibly do this work if I was a "non-sensitive," to use Dr Aron's term.

Are you hypersensitive?  Try the test here and please let me know what you discover!
