“The truly creative mind in any field is no more than this: A human creature born abnormally, inhumanly sensitive.” — Pearl S. Buck
The most creative people are inhumanly sensitive. And most sensitive people are unusually creative. It can feel, at times, like these two traits are somehow related.
The truth is, creativity and sensitivity are not just related but they complement each other like two parts of a bigger whole.
Sensitivity feeds creativity and creativity requires heightened sense about life. Experiencing life on a much deeper level is the way of sensitives.
For a highly sensitive person a kiss is an ecstasy, a gaze is a miracle, a friend is a lover, a lover is a god, music is healing, and beauty can be hypnotic.
But a Creative Sensitive uses this hypersensitivity to feed their creativity, that’s how they end up creating world changing pieces of work.
What Is A Creative Sensitive:
Creative Sensitive people often pick up on the little things in the environment that others miss, see patterns where others see randomness, and find meaning and metaphor in the minutiae of everyday life.
They are deeply touched by a piece of art, a beautiful song can give them goosebumps that last for minutes and a movie scene can leave them in tears or even change the course of their life.
Most people think that being highly sensitive person is a weakness, but any Creative Sensitive can prove the opposite, being highly sensitive person is actually a superpower and only few who are given this gift know how to use it.
Many famous musicians like Michael Jackson and Dolly Parton, the best authors like J.R.R. Tolkien, psychologists like Carl Jung, even the most brilliant scientists like Albert Einstein, from Dalai Lama to Jim Carrey, most people who impacted the course of the world were, and are, Highly Sensitive Creatives.
To be highly sensitive is like having a highly sensitive skin. If you touch a person with normal skin, and a person with skin without its first protective layer, the person with skin without its protective layer will feel your touch much stronger than the person with normal skin because their skin is much more sensitive.
Highly sensitive people are without this first protective layer, but not on their skin, instead on their emotions. They feel the world much stronger than normal people, and this is the secret of their hidden superpower. That’s why they can create things that leave everyone in shock. See if you are a Creative Sensitive.

Your family and most people in your childhood saw your sensitivity as weakness, every time you shared your passions, curiosities and ideas, others saw them as too unrealistic, you might have been even ridiculed as childish, naive or inexperienced, and all you did was see through the pretense, the blame games and the lies others kept telling themselves.

11. You are hyperaware.
Where someone might be aware of three things in a room, you are aware of ten, you subconsciously absorb information about the temperature in the room, the lights, the people inside, their energy, emotions, facial expressions, the sounds and noises, your subconsciousness is aware of everything.
