There are various types of Personality Traits in people in the world. However, some people are so sensitive that they associate events in their lives with their emotions. Those emotions are so strong that they can be seen in their behavior as well. We may not realize what happened to that person or why he or she is behaving in this manner because they were unable to communicate properly. These people aren’t bad, and they’re not doing it on purpose. Their behavior is frequently influenced by their past experiences or the current situation they are in. And the majority of the time, they are unable to resolve those issues on their own.
It has also been observed that a highly sensitive person suffers from depression or anxiety attacks. It’s because they believe no one understands what they’re going through. They feel isolated and helpless in their situations, which contributes to depression and anxiety. However, this is not always the case; many such people lead normal lives as well.
Here are a few highly sensitive personality traits shared by all emotional people.
They Always Associate Each Event with a Specific Emotion
These individuals can easily associate each event with emotion, and they do so with heightened sensitivity. Sometimes we find them associating emotion with very unlikely events, such as a character dying in a movie or a TV show ending, and so on. It could take them days to recover from those emotions. I’ve seen one of my friends cry in every drama/emotional film we’ve watched together. She is the most sensitive person I’ve ever met.
They Isolate Themselves Whenever They Experience Fear of Any Kind
A highly sensitive person is often an outcast because he or she is afraid of being judged by those around him or her. They are afraid that people will laugh at them, make fun of them, or reject them from their groups. If they are already a part of a group, they will generally outcast themselves if such a comment is made about them. They believe that being alone makes them feel better.
They Have Mastered The “Runaway” Personality Trait
This point is related to the movie “The Runaway Bride,” in which the main lead character Maggie Carpenter used to abandon her betrothed at the altar. She was afraid that if she married the wrong person, her life would be a disaster. Every time she ran away, she was afraid that her decision was wrong. She was, in my opinion, a very sensitive person. This film, I believe, is the best example to demonstrate my point.
A Brilliant Artistic Mind
Highly sensitive people can feel what others are feeling, which stimulates their creativity. They express themselves emotionally through paintings, music, and other forms of art. They can recognize good art simply by looking at it. Because they are so detail-oriented, they can see some amazing tiny details in a piece of art that most people overlook and wonder, “why didn’t I notice that?”
Intuitive Personality Traits
Most of us have some sort of intuitive mind, but a highly sensitive person has an extremely powerful intuitive mind. It’s as if they can guess or predict things almost perfectly. They can tell you ahead of time if something is going to happen or what the other person’s next move will be. They’re also pretty good at it.
These people think from their hearts, and they take every small matter to heart. People always tell them not to take things personally or to overthink things because they are easily hurt. Sarcastic and direct comments can hurt them more than anything else. They are so deeply hurt that they usually end up crying for hours or days.
Fully Dramatic or Not at All
They can make a drama out of nothing or nothing at all. By creating drama, I meant that a highly sensitive person could cry in front of people without fear of repercussions. Because it is more important to them to express their emotions at the time they are experiencing them than to wait for the appropriate time to do so. They can even do the opposite at times. They can completely shut themselves down and avoid talking or reacting to any issue or circumstance.
You know these people aren’t insane or suffering from a mental illness. They are regular people like you and me. The only thing that distinguishes them is their inability to balance their emotions at certain points in time. People make fun of them behind their backs or, in some cases, become so rude that they make fun of them in public for being sensitive or emotional.
If we truly want to assist them, we should refrain from asking or telling them that they are overly emotional.
