About the Highly Sensitive Person Test
All of the highly sensitive person tests that you’ll find online are derivatives of Dr. Elaine Aaron’s work. Because of this, it really makes sense to take her actual, scientific test, rather than versions that other people have simply made up or copied from her.
Dr. Elaine Aaron’s Highly Sensitive Person Tests
The term “highly sensitive person” was coined by Dr. Elaine Aaron about ten years ago and she has come out with two tests:
Am I Highly Sensitive? Test
Is my Child Highly Sensitive? Test
Both of those tests can be found at hsperson.com
Professor Michael Pluess’s Highly Sensitive Person Test
For researchers on high sensitivity, there is a website called sensitivityresearch.com which is geared towards the research community. They do offer tests on that site which are direct derivatives of Dr. Aaron’s work.
As stated above, Dr. Aaron’s coined the term highly sensitive person and came out with the original test. I recommend taking her tests which are also included in her book “The Highly Sensitive Person” which is featured in the resource library here on GiftedConnect. The library contains recommended reading for highly sensitive people, gifted individuals, and parents of both.
