Understanding your wonderfully sensitive personality can be hugely helpful both in your personal as well as your professional life. If you are interested in designing your life in a way that honors your specific needs, Gabriella - herself an HSP - has the solid understanding and knowledge to help you transform your sensitivity into true assets and thrive in the midst of overwhelm.



 Are you a Highly Sensitive Person?

Find out by answering these questions below.


Instructions: Answer each question according to the way you personally feel. Answer Yes if it is at least somewhat true for you; Answer No if it is not very true or not at all true for you.


If you answered more than fourteen of the questions as true of yourself, you are probably highly sensitive. (Your trait is normal and innate and you share it with about 20% of the human race.) If fewer questions are true of you, but extremely true, that might also justify calling you highly sensitive.
