al motter

Today’s guest, Al Motter, is one of the hosts of the excellent Introvert Extrovert podcast.

He’s the “Introvert” out of the two hosts, but he doesn’t have the trait of high sensitivity.

In this episode, Al talks about how he sometimes wishes he was more sensitive, and how a recent bout of medication gave him a few weeks of heightened sensitivity–resulting in some fascinating insights into our world.

His perspective, as an outsider to the HSP world, can help HSPs see the larger picture: there ARE a lot of great things about being able to feel deeply!

He also talks about tutoring crying kids, why physically larger males are “allowed” to cry, and loving Benihana restaurant (which I hate).
