A new development since my last posts. I’ve decided to change my degree plan to Clinical Psych with LPC track, instead of doing CMHC. This makes more sense for me long term and would mean I’m out from under the preconceived notions carried by the CMHC staff. The Psych staff have had no issues with me at all. Anyway, what this means for this post: I have to take an individual research class, in which I do my own research and create a research paper. I’m getting a head start on finding participants.
I’m about to start research on how Highly Sensitive People have differing needs in the higher education and business sectors. I’m wondering if any of you might be willing to take this self-test, see if you qualify as HSP, and then be willing to participate in further research with me a little down the line?
Here is the self-test: http://hsperson.com/test/highly-sensitive-test/
If you take it and are interested, please let me know in the comments. Age doesn’t matter. Only qualifying factors would be experience in a work environment or college/grad school environment and identification as HSP.
I’m in the US so I’d really love to see some participants from other countries, so I can learn about how your country does or does not do a better job of accommodating highly sensitive traits.
And, as a side note: the self-test really just measures sensory processing stuff, so if you’re close to the cutoff (it is either 13 or 14), please let me know. You probably still qualify.
