Abstract [en]

Sensory processing sensitivity is believed to be a personality trait in up to 20% of individuals, including other species than humans. The trait is associated with higher levels of unpleasant arousal, a higher sensitivity to sensory input, empathy and a deeper level of informational processing in the brain. Sensory processing sensitivity is measured using the Highly Sensitive Person Scale (HSPS), which has been evaluated in several languages. Aron & Aron (1997) who first created the scale found that it was unidimensional, however further research suggests that it consists rather of two or three dimensions. In this study (N= 1024) a Swedish version of the HSPS is evaluated through exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis, and results support earlier findings of the scale being multidimensional. Regressions between the dimensions of SPS and outcome variables Managerial Support, Creativity and Percieved Stress show that one of SPS dimensions is a strong predictor for percieved stress, and another dimension is a strong predictor for creativity.
