The Orchid and the Dandelion
Dandelions are said to be hardy and resilient, while orchids are said to be fragile and sensitive. In The Orchid and the Dandelion: Why Some Children Struggle and Why All Can Thrive, Dr. Thomas Boyce uses the term Orchid to refer to Highly Sensitive People and Dandelion to refer to those who score low on the HSP scale.
He explores what it means to be an introvert, extrovert, and Highly Sensitive Person. And he goes on to show that a combination of environmental and genetic factors contribute to what makes us who we are.
