Very highly recommended for any HSP that struggles in their career, and anyone looking to understand HSPs better.
The depth of processing, the complexity of thought, the desire for creative engagement and the strong need for meaningful exchanges are all reviewed, shedding light on the unique nature of HSP's. Having this extremely sensitive being, without awareness, can be a challenging minefield to navigate.
The real examples shared by the HSP population involved in this study helps personalize and characterize how others have related to their own struggles and triumphs on their learning journey.
This book additionally provides context from a social/cultural, childhood and self-care view. This systemic perspective provides an even deeper realization into the intricate web of behaviors.
Dr Cooper does a wonderful job sharing his own personal insight, provides exceptional awareness into the complex nature of HSP's and also has strong recommendations with thriving in life and your career!
A highly insightful book and a must read!!
existed when I first discovered that I was a highly sensitive extraverted sensation seeker. That was also the time I had just started my career. It would have explained the last 12 years of my working life, both at jobs and as an entrepreneur.
That being said I feel grateful for his exhaustive research and this book. I can now give the book to other HSPs who ask me for career advice, which is happening more and more nowadays as I am being more out about my HSPness.
I particularly appreciated Dr. Cooper's insights on elevating self care to a religious practice. I had to learn this one for myself through the school of business hard knocks. I have now integrated self care deeply into my days, to the point where different self care activities punctuate the 3 main segments of my day. I had been feeling a little guilty about the amount of time I was spending on self care. But Thrive's section on self care validated my decisions and removed all doubts and concerns immediately. Thank you Dr. Cooper!
I also appreciate the recurring theme in the book (and blog) that instead of grouping together in conformity to the HSP label, HSPs should explore the label fully and then hold it loosely enough to expand beyond conformity to the the full experience of being human. Now that is a thought that up-levels not just HSPs but all in contact with HSPs.
