From the author:
High sensitivity encourages creativity
Highly sensitive people perceive more and more differentiated and process more deeply what they see, feel, smell, taste, think, experience and feel. This naturally leads to their processing and networking more information.
The result: people with high perception often think transversely and act solution-oriented. And no, they do not want to be "better" than the rest, they just want to be perceived as they are - with all their needs and potential. For all their lives, they embrace a world that is mostly made up of average sensitive people.
Holistic - solution-oriented - sustainable
For some, it may be strange when people think with ease around corners, and sometimes so far that others can not follow. But that is exactly what the economy can profit from - especially when it comes to looking and putting the finger in the wound so that finally new solutions for old problems can be found. It is pointless to be envious of the abilities of others. Instead, we should gratefully acknowledge the potential of each individual - in all its diversity.
While others have a long persistence at high levels of irritation, and it is easier for them to extend their elbows when necessary, HSP thinks complex, over-encompassing and with a long-term vision and are able to smooth the waves again. They are idealists and visionaries, who like to have the great connection in mind and can keep the eye for details in parallel. Differentiate, prioritize, create cross-connections, recognize patterns, go deep, incorporate past and future. All of this enables them to recognize, create, or question systems and to grasp topics holistically.
Highly sensitive CVs are different
Many HSP are curious, versatile interested, inquisitive and able to learn until old age. Learning a profession, working every day, doing job-specific training from time to time and finally enjoying the pension. That was the idea of working life that many of us got on the way. For some, the parents have decided what they should "become" or study. For others, there was no other option but to access the next best education or study place.
After the school graduation, others have shifted their studies and educators and asked themselves desperately what job they can think of working for a lifetime - an idea that is difficult for many highly sensitive people. Not infrequently, all-round talents can be found among them. With the classical view of our education system on such CVs, this may be falsely acting as if we were hesitant or could not commit ourselves. The opposite is the case. We are determined to learn a lot, have the courage to go other ways and change, because we want to understand connections and link important things together. And this often requires knowledge in several disciplines.
Recognition Highness as a career compass
Many HSPs do not find it easy to choose a profession because they feel a deep yearning to do the right thing and make the right choice. And regardless of whether we know about our sensitivity or not. She plays into the process of choosing a career. Anyone who is highly sensitive is capable of change, has the ability to adapt, and is always in search of meaning - a chameleon at work. The sooner one recognizes one's own sensitivity, the better are the chances of dealing adequately with the topic of career choice and vocation.
It is important to realize that it can not be about the question of whether we can imagine what we choose to do for a lifetime. Career paths become more flexible. Breaches or gaps in the CV are no longer killers when we stand with them and can confidently justify them. Lateral thinkers and people who can think outside the box are more and more in demand. It is ideal if we choose a basic education that touches us in the heart and corresponds to our gifts. That's the right track.
Solutions with a vision
Those who perceive more and are capable of networking many factors feel negative and positive factors in the working world earlier and finer than others and can act and think with a vision. It is important that people with such abilities also have an appreciative space to be able to represent their workings and abilities without being bullied. Otherwise, they will deal with their knowledge modestly. And then strange things happen.
Since someone is called to the employee interview with the boss and almost quit, because he makes "too little" mistakes and it therefore looks as if this extremely reliable and high-profile employees work too little. He just makes little mistakes. Another impressive story comes from a former software developer. He fell from the clouds when, at the turn of the millennium, the great millennium problem arose in programming.
Because of course he had thought in his programming to the solution of the problem with the numerical jump. But he had never talked about it because he assumed everyone else was thinking about it. It is therefore not only for the highly sensitive people a gain, if appreciation and openness for other types of potential in everyday work, but also for the Company even.
