In fact, Aron’s research found that sensitive people tend to get more bored in marriages than non-sensitives.
According to Aron, one study found that sensitive people reacted more than non-sensitives when they saw photos of their loved ones being unhappy. But for highly sensitive people, fighting with a loved one can be torture.
Certain areas of their brain–related to empathy and the desire to do something–became active. Aron explained that when a disagreement arises, a battle begins in the sensitive person’s mind.
