Over 30% of the world’s population has a personality trait called Sensory Processing Sensitivity. People with this trait are often referred to as highly sensitive people or HSPs.

Most of the world considers HSPs too sensitive. Sensitive people often react emotionally or temporarily shut down to a quiet place. However, what may seem to be a disorder is actually a gift.

HSPs are often the wise counselors, advisors, compassionate, and nurturing people who are here to sense when things are awry and aid the rest of humanity with cautious and thoughtful advice.

There has never been a better time in history for HSPs to rise and fulfill their duty to humankind than right now.

During this episode, I interview William Allen, author, and Highly Sensitive Men expert. As an author of two books on being a highly sensitive man, he brings his years of life experience and research to help highly sensitive men to embrace this wonderful trait.

For HSP men, it is often difficult to admit to being sensitive. Most of this is because of a lack of understanding. With education and support, HSP men can embrace the trait and model a new type of masculinity that will help in reshaping the way men see themselves – more in touch with emotions, more nurturing, and more intuitive.   

William is a former corporate manager that retired early to become a certified hypnotist, coach, and neurofeedback trainer. He has recently focused his energy on helping HSP men to embrace the trait of sensitivity.
