Sensitive – The Untold Story is based on the findings of bestselling author/psychologist Dr. Elaine Aron. In 1991 Dr. Aron made a breakthrough discovery: an innate temperament trait of high sensitivity. Since then, her international bestseller The Highly Sensitive Person has been translated into 19 languages and her research is published in top-tier peer reviewed journals such as The Journal of Personality and Social Psychology and Brain and Behavior, as well as replicated and extended by other scientists, who are interviewed in the film. There are now fMRI and genetic studies that confirm the trait. Dr. Aron found that not only 1 in 5 people are highly sensitive, but the trait occurs in the same percentage in over 100 other species. This trait (found in both men and women) reflects a certain type of survival strategy: being observant before acting. The brains of highly sensitive persons (HSPs) actually work differently than others’. HSPs think deeply, get easily overwhelmed by intense, complex or novel things, are more attentive to subtleties and have more empathy, so they cry easily. Sensitive-The Untold Story features 7-time Grammy winner singer-songwriter-activist Alanis Morissette.
