What does it mean to have two competing personality traits like sensory processing sensitivity and sensation seeking? Do they balance out or does one override the other? How can you learn to balance being a highly sensitive person and a high sensation seeker? This book is the only one of its kind and was written for just that reason: nothing existed for those of us who have both traits.
Some 30% of HSPs are also high in a trait known as sensation seeking. Sensation seeking is comprised of four aspects: thrill and adventure seeking, novelty and new experience seeking, boredom susceptibility, and disinhibition. Many HSPs tend to identify with novelty seeking and boredom susceptibility but not disinhibition or thrill seeking. That’s because sensation seeking is a general trait in the species and all of us are sensation seekers to some extent, just as sensitivity is thought of as a general trait with people existing along the range of sensitiveness.
