Are your feelings easily hurt? Do you take things too personally? Feel defensive? Or overanalyze situations? If so, you might have what one study calls the "Highly Sensitive Personality" (HSP), MRIs of people with HSP reveal that they have greater activity in certain areas of the brain, causing them to notice things others might miss and to spend more time examining situations. If that sounds like you, you're not destined to go through life with hurt feelings. Heightened sensitivity can be managed by such things as minimizing stress, exercising regularly, and deepening your spiritual life.
