Evaluation of the Highly Sensitive Child test
0-12 points You probably don’t have a HSK (Highly Sensitive Child). Although that cannot be said for sure. For example, if two items are very true for you, it may be that your child is highly sensitive.
13-23 points Your child is most likely highly sensitive (HSP). He/she is more sensitive to nuance differences than most other people/children. It may be useful to read a book about high sensitivity or to get to know other HSPs. You may recognize a lot and therefore become a little more aware of this characteristic of your child.
