Why do highly sensitive students hate tests ?
The teachers are surprised by the fact that highly sensitive students do not take the exams well. It is noticeable that they are very stressed and often the effect of their work during the test does not reflect their true knowledge and skills – they fare worse
Time pressure is what makes the work of highly sensitive children extremely difficult. A ticking clock or a teacher rushing students, does not mobilize the student. On the contrary, it highly stresses him/her out and instead of stimulating it disorganizes his/her work.
