Woody Allen on Casting and Being Socially Awkward

Woody Allen on Casting and Being Socially Awkward | Highly Sensitive | Scoop.it

A Wall Street Journal article notes, "Actors—women especially—love to appear in Woody Allen films… Though he's good at it, Allen actually hates casting, and his process is so eccentric that, Juliet Taylor, Allen's casting director said, 'We warn people beforehand.'

"The whole interview typically lasts about a minute, and in most cases the actors aren't even asked to take a seat. "I find the whole experience very awkward, because I am socially awkward," Allen said. "I don't like meeting people." - From How Woody Allen Sees It By Charles McGrath http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887323469804578523611076250442.html

Tapping for self-esteem & emotional health

Tapping for self-esteem & emotional health | Highly Sensitive | Scoop.it

Trauma and loss of self-esteem can be especially difficult when we are highly sensitive - many people say this Tapping approach to health is helpful. /

"My childhood was very difficult. My dad died in my arms when I was 14 and my mother was physically and emotionally abusive. We were poor, dysfunctional and quite unhappy. Maybe it was my own struggles that led me to know when I was 12 that what I wanted to do in life was to help other people suffer less and laugh more.” Lindsay Kenny

Cutting and high sensitivity | TalentDevelop | Highly Sensitive | Scoop.it
People engage in self-injury for various reasons, including regulating their emotional states and trying to manage situations in their environment.


Some deal with their high sensitivity very well, with adequate self care and respecting their needs for boundaries and retreating, but some people take drugs, and others self-injure to deal with their stress and anxiety, which can be heightened with the trait of high sensitivity. News reports suggest that teens "are harming themselves at rates higher than previously suspected”

Angelina Jolie said, "I don't cut myself now..."

‘An actor’s job is empathy’

‘An actor’s job is empathy’ | Highly Sensitive | Scoop.it

Natalie Portman shared this short but sweet observation on TV recently: “An actor’s job is empathy.” Actors and would-be actors would do well to mull that succinct statement over, and evaluate themselves or how well they vivify it in their own work.

 

So, many local actors of the “looker” sort have a hard time empathizing with the characters they play, enough for them to believably vivify them.


What do they need to do to make up for lost empathy? Natalie Portman is more beautiful than most, so how come she doesn’t have a problem in this regard?

Judith Orloff on Coping With Emotional Overload

Judith Orloff on Coping With Emotional Overload | Highly Sensitive | Scoop.it

Judith Orloff, MD writes:

"Since emotions such as fear, anger, and frustration are energies, you can potentially “catch” them from people without realizing it.

"If you tend to be an emotional sponge, it’s vital to know how to avoid taking on an individual’s negative emotions or the free-floating kind in crowds."

Medicating Women’s Feelings: what we need is more empathy, compassion, receptivity, emotionality and vulnerability, not less.

Medicating Women’s Feelings: what we need is more empathy, compassion, receptivity, emotionality and vulnerability, not less. | Highly Sensitive | Scoop.it

WOMEN are moody. By evolutionary design, we are hard-wired to be sensitive to our environments, empathic to our children’s needs and intuitive of our partners’ intentions.


This is basic to our survival and that of our offspring. Some research suggests that women are often better at articulating their feelings than men because as the female brain develops, more capacity is reserved for language, memory, hearing and observing emotions in others...


When we are overmedicated, our emotions become synthetic. For personal growth, for a satisfying marriage and for a more peaceful world, what we need is more empathy, compassion, receptivity, emotionality and vulnerability, not less.


We need to stop labeling our sadness and anxiety as uncomfortable symptoms, and to appreciate them as a healthy, adaptive part of our biology.
