Dr Pluess’s research interest has been centred around what protects some people from adverse incidences that may, in others, lead to a psychological problem? He is interested in the protective factors that constitute to peoples wellbeing.
He believes that those most at risk to developing problems in the face of adversity, are the same people who benefit most from positive experiences – as they are more sensitive to both negative and positive experiences.
So when things are good, and you are in a supportive environment with plenty of opportunities, is being high in sensitivity more of an advantage? Do sensitive people make great leaders?
