Dear patients, dear parents,

According to the results so far, one has to assume that by now the number of highly sensitive people in Germany has increased by 40 percent. With the SENS-E procedure, we can detect risk patients early and safely and provide preventive advice and treatment In cooperation with the University Hospital Giessen and Kiel, the SENS-E-Test for adults was developed and tested in several years of preparation (details under publications).


The SPS can be detected quickly and reliably with the SENS-E test. Their detection helps to understand the increasing frequency of the most common mental disorders and provides a logical and plausible explanation for the atopic's response to insignificant stimuli. The SENS-E test has shown good reliability in the comparisons of atopic-predisposed with non-atopic personalities. The results of testing on the subsamples also indicate a high validity of the procedure. The instrument is therefore suitable as a screening method for the fast and reliable recording of the SPS and the use in cohort studies. 

The answer of: never (0), possible (1), often (2), mostly (3), always (4) results in a minimum score of 0 and a maximum score of 64. The median value was 29. 30 points were chosen as the limit value of the screening procedure for simple differentiation inconspicuously vs. conspicuously.


The sum of the mean values and standard deviations of the 16 items in a survey give SPS total values, which allow a quick comparison of groups. Values greater than 1,8 are considered to indicate elevated, greater than 2,2 as high and  greater than 2,9 as hypersensitive, therefore critical.
