3. Highly sensitive people are great listeners

Because these special people can actually feel what other people are feeling and who can sincerely empathize with others, they are great listeners. They have a need to comfort the hurting and help ease other’s suffering and pain. Because of this, highly sensitive people make excellent therapists, counselors, healers, and teachers.

4. They hate repetitive, loud noises

You’d be hard pressed to find a highly sensitive person at a death metal concert. They are just too sensitive to chaos and overstimulating environments. For a highly sensitive person, a quiet dinner with friends, a trip to the zoo, or a long hike through an evergreen forest is more their style than, say, Carnival in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

5. Highly sensitive people don’t like to make decisions

When it comes to decision making, these people get nervous. Why? Because they don’t want to make the wrong decision. They understand that the choices they make have consequences and they always want a “happy ending”.
