I am quite sure abt who i am and wht i like to do and everytng and i dnt refuse anytng i love..
My present age is 17 and i became an Author for philosofical book- ‘A Huge Universe and Small Human!’ as i read in your one blog that its ok to be multipotential till we are in highschool bt as we grow expectation are in the direction of speciallisation. Same happens abt me- my father want me to study Arts rather than Science when i cmplted wth my first book bt i am nt sure.. I still sci. fr 12th grade and nw i’d 3 books on my accnt of which second will get published.
As according to my own writing, i’m a ‘bird wthout shelter.’ and i love it.
Thank you to tell more abt me indirectly..
Although we are nt master of anytng bt we are the creator of many things!
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.]]>
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.]]>
‘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.]]>
