9. Highly sensitive people have a low tolerance for pain

While these people can ride out a cold like everyone else, when it comes to pain, they feel it to a higher degree than most others. Most to them probably don’t get tattoos.

10. They have a hard time with criticism

Because the highly sensitive person avoids criticism and the feelings it produces – most notably shame – they tend to be “people pleasers”.

The world needs highly sensitive people. They are the ones who help others in need. From feeding the hungry to rescuing animals to being a shoulder to cry on for a friend, the world is a better place because of them. If you love a highly sensitive person, then you have truly found a deep relationship, because that is what highly sensitive people crave – deep, intimate relationships and great conversation.
