If they are highly sensitive, people tend to notice more of their outer and inner environments, and process more sensory information. All of which can help make us more creative.
Some areas of creative expression are especially appropriate for emotional sensitivity, an aspect of the trait for many people.
One example was actor Heath Ledger.
Director Todd Haynes commented after his death, “Heath was a true artist, a deeply sensitive man, an explorer, gifted and wise beyond his years.” His partner for several years, actor Michelle Williams commented about his vulnerability and underlying sensitivity.
