The Highly Sensitive Man

The Highly Sensitive Man | Highly Sensitive People - HSP | Scoop.it

By Deborah Ward in Sense and Sensitivity

Being a sensitive man can present unique challenges as men are still held to a standard of masculinity that does not often include showing their feelings.

~~~

Dr. Ted Zeff has researched highly sensitive boys and men in five countries, and notes there are some distinct cultural differences. For example, North American (U.S. and Canada) HSMs (highly sensitive males) who reported that they had supportive parents as boys and who played group sports as a boy were “never” or “rarely” teased for being sensitive., and most sensitive boys in all countries indicated they “usually” or “always” thought there was something wrong with them during their childhood, and didn’t fit in with other boys. - From my post: Ted Zeff on highly sensitive boys and men

Susan Cain: The power of introverts

In a culture where being social and outgoing are prized above all else, it can be difficult, even shameful, to be an introvert. But, as Susan Cain argues in this passionate talk, introverts bring extraordinary talents and abilities to the world, and should be encouraged and celebrated. [TED.com]

Susan Cain notes Bill Gates is an introvert, but not shy, and Barbra Streisand, who famously suffers from stage fright, is a shy extrovert. Cain notes, “Shyness and introversion are not the same thing. Shyness is the fear of negative judgment, and introversion is a preference for quiet, minimally stimulating environments. - From my post Creative Introverts

In her NYTimes article, Cain writes, "Solitude is out of fashion. Our companies, our schools and our culture are in thrall to an idea I call the New Groupthink, which holds that creativity and achievement come from an oddly gregarious place…But there’s a problem with this view. Research strongly suggests that people are more creative when they enjoy privacy and freedom from interruption." -From my post Developing Creativity in Solitude

Maralee McKee's curator insight, August 3, 2013 10:44 PM

The differnce between shyness, introversion, and being an extrovert. A fascinating talk. As an introvert (who isn't shy) I certianly enjoyed Ms. Cain's insight into the differnces. Spoiler alert: Barbra Streisand, says Ms. Cain, is a shy extrovert. Watch and see where you fit into the introversion/extroversion continuium.

Anger is an interesting subject in my opinion.
I grew with narcissistic parents. They were angry a lot.

Shyness and sensitivity - working it out on stage or off

Shyness and sensitivity - working it out on stage or off | Highly Sensitive People - HSP | Scoop.it

Many apparently very self-assured performers and actors have been shy or introverted as children. Many still are, as adults. And many have found that performing has changed their level of confidence. Being highly sensitive – as many artists are – can interact with shyness and introversion.

 

Rebel Wilson ("Pitch Perfect") was painfully shy...one day, her mother dragged her to an acting class..."

Marianne Moore on silence

Marianne Moore (November 15, 1887 – February 5, 1972) was an American Modernist poet and writer noted for her irony and wit.

Moore was born in Kirkwood, Missouri, in the manse of the Presbyterian church where her maternal grandfather, John Riddle Warner, served as pastor. She was the daughter of mechanical engineer and inventor John Milton Moore and his wife, Mary Warner. Before Moore was born, her father suffered a nervous breakdown and Moore never got to meet her father. She grew up in her grandfather's household until 1894 when John Riddle Warner passed away. In 1905, Moore entered Bryn Mawr College in Pennsylvania and graduated four years later with a B.A. and majored in history, law, and politics. She taught at the Carlisle Indian Industrial School in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, until 1915, when Moore began to publish poetry professionally.

Moore came to the attention of poets as diverse as Wallace Stevens, William Carlos Williams, H.D., T. S. Eliot, Mina Loy, and Ezra Pound beginning with her first publication in 1915. From 1925 until 1929, Moore served as editor of the literary and cultural journal The Dial. This continued her role, similar to that of Pound, as a patron of poetry; much later, she encouraged promising young poets, including Elizabeth Bishop, Allen Ginsberg, John Ashbery and James Merrill.

“The deepest feeling always shows itself in silence; not in silence, but restraint”

 

Marianne Moore (American Poet, 1887-1972)

Clive Thompson on the Power of Introversion | Wired Magazine | Wired.com | Highly Sensitive People - HSP | Scoop.it
US society has embraced extroversion as a key to success. But Clive Thompson says shut up and start acting like an introvert.

'Guy Kawasaki, by all appearances, seems like an outgoing guy. A former Apple “evangelist,” he’s an omnipresent voice online, blogging his ideas about entrepreneurship and tweeting 40 times a day to his half-million followers.

'But a few years ago he posted a surprising 140-character revelation. “You may find this hard to believe,” Kawasaki wrote, “but I am an introvert. I have a ‘role’ to play, but fundamentally I am a loner.” His followers were gobsmacked.'

Jessica Chastain and High Sensitivity, Crying and Creative People

Jessica Chastain and High Sensitivity, Crying and Creative People | Highly Sensitive People - HSP | Scoop.it
Crying is a form of being intensely responsive and emotional that many if not most highly sensitive people share, including many actors and artists.

“I’m very sensitive in real life. I cannot not cry if someone around me is crying…even if it’s not appropriate. I have that thing in me, a weakness or sensitivity.” Jessica Chastain

 

Crying is a form of being intensely emotional that many highly sensitive people share. Over the course of some twenty years reading interviews with talented actors and other artists, I have been struck by how many of them talk about crying as almost a part of their personality.

 

Elaine Aron, PhD is one of the leading writers and researchers on the personality trait of high sensitivity (sensory processing sensitivity; present for about 15 to 20 percent of us), and she declares that HSPs (highly sensitive persons) “do cry more readily than others. It was a strong finding in our research."
