Dr. Aron notes, "Most highly sensitive people undervalue themselves, but especially men, because the trait has been sadly mistaken for being "feminine." Growing up in the 50's, I really found that to be one of the reasons I felt like such an outsider and misfit. It has taken years, decades really, to come to value my sensitivity, divergent thinking and other traits as assets - thanks in no small part to leaders such as Dr. Aron, Dr. Ted Zeff, Jenna Forrest, Jenna Avery, and many others.
