That website is only one of many that I have as I could not focus
one one subject.
I would love to be in touch with other scanners.
I do have a question:
I would love to do a blog ( that pays) but everyone says you have to focus on one subjsct. I would love to have just ONE blog that cvan talk about ALL the stuff I love. Is this possibe? Would I actually get any sponsors or readers? Help!!

Comment on Multiple Interests and High Sensitivity by Margaux http://www.scannertribe.com/2009/08/17/multiple-interests-and-high-sensitivity/comment-page-1/#comment-204117 Mon, 13 Jan 2014 20:54:23 +0000 http://www.scannertribe.com/?p=128#comment-204117 There seems to be a number of Scanners who self-identify as HSP. I don’t. I am tuned in to other people’s emotions, but I have strong boundaries about what is mine and what is external.

I love being overstimulated from time to time, but I also need alone time. Not to regenerate but to be alone with my thoughts, be able to play with my ideas, to research on my own, to experiment on my own, etc. But given an opportunity to play with others, I will happily do that, too, though not indefinitely.

I do from time to time get nauseous in movie theatres because I can be overwhelmed by the odours, but this doesn’t happen often enough to be a thing.

Considering something like 20% of the population can be described as HSP, I don’t think there is enough correlation with Scanners to make inferences about the two. My suspicion is that 20% of Scanners are HSP, the same as the normal population.

If I look at the people I know who could be HSP and those who could be Scanners and are TMA, there isn’t much cross-over in my network. The people who I believe are HSP are definitely not TMA and not Scanners. Those I know who are Scanners appear to also be TMA. But, I can’t think of a single Scanner I know who could be HSP.

Any attempt to pigeonhole Scanners into other personality categories is likely to fail. I spent some time on a forum (not Barbara’s) of Scanners and while some of them identified as HSP, so many others did not. When we discussed Myers-Briggs types, each person was sure that most Scanners would be the same type as they were. Guess what? Completely wrong. There were all various MBTI types represented in the group of 150+, none of them disproportionately greater than in a standard population.

I’ve also studied Kolbe, DiSC, and Strengsthfinder, and there is still very little correlation with other Scanners, except perhaps the Strengthsfinder strength of Learner. I think it would be incredibly troublesome to make inferences based on anecdotal (self-reported) evidence.

My favorite activity was to read the world encyclopedia – and discover every single island on the earth. I was fascinated with the mysterious ones – like Easter Island. Anyways, it is great to know that there are also wildly creative persons like myself! Let’s learn and inspire each other! 🙂

Comment on Multiple Interests and High Sensitivity by Kelly Scotti http://www.scannertribe.com/2009/08/17/multiple-interests-and-high-sensitivity/comment-page-1/#comment-42749 Fri, 27 Jul 2012 18:09:44 +0000 http://www.scannertribe.com/?p=128#comment-42749 This topic is so interested. I just recently found out that I am a scanner (yay for knowing!!!!), and am reading Barbara’s books. I already identified myself as a HSP years ago,and now it makes sense that the two might be linked.

I know that I am easily overstimulated, especially since I am so excited about learning about so much, and then have to take a breath to take it all in.

I know too I need lots of alone time, and need to plan for that when I need to be “on” all the time when coaching clients or doing other work…or during family vacations.

BTW, Its so nice to know that I am not broken, or alone, and that I actually finish everything I start in my own way. Also nice to have a whole community of scanners out her-together I think we are going to change the world.

Comment on Too Many Aptitudes by niki http://www.scannertribe.com/2009/06/04/too-many-aptitudes/comment-page-1/#comment-12868 Fri, 28 Oct 2011 21:34:57 +0000 http://www.scannertribe.com/?p=50#comment-12868 Hi,
I’m a TMA from Indonesia.
What I’m very confused is how can I switch from different job to different job, without a related Uni Degree or past work experiences (especially during a very “strict” job interview and work CV/resume submission process)?
Especially if money and time unfortunately seems to be my issue (still dependent with my parents, unfortunately) of taking another ‘related’ Uni Degree…or it’s not always necessary?
Please I urgently need some practical pointers/advices in this. thank you.

Comment on Multiple Interests and High Sensitivity by Joanna Sherwell http://www.scannertribe.com/2009/08/17/multiple-interests-and-high-sensitivity/comment-page-1/#comment-1330 Wed, 29 Sep 2010 00:59:11 +0000 http://www.scannertribe.com/?p=128#comment-1330 ‘Emotional intensity is directly correlated with the intensity of a talent’ – As an artist (among many other things!) and a ‘concerningly senstive child’ (according to my parents and teachers) Ive always felt there was some correlation between my seemingly unusual levels of creative talent and emotion, but never been able to articulate why this might be.

‘It is quite possible that TMAs are continually operating in a hypersensitive manner. People hypersensitive to external and internal data in many forms and operating at a high emotional intensity level might very well become overstimulated.’ – My partner comments all the time about how its difficult for me to be in certain environments due to the overstimulation of all my senses, and my difficulty relaxing and slowing down my brain.

‘Many of them need a lot of time alone to regenerate. Yet, this same turbulence can also lead to great insight and creativity.’ – Yes! I desperately need more alone time than most people i know and become extremely overwhelmed if i dont get it. When i do get it my creative output is always increased and even surprises me sometimes.

‘Few people know how to handle normal emotion, let alone powerful, ongoing emotion’ – Its exhausting being tuned in to the emotions of other people and myself, it results in a constant battle to keep the health effects of stress at bay.
