Proposal Title

Are Highly Sensitive People More Conscious of Environmental Harm?

Presenter Information

Samantha Sheppard, Lesley University

Abstract

I will present my honors psychology capstone study on sensory processing sensitivity and its role in pro–environmental behavior. This study weaves the worlds of evolutionary psychology, personality psychology, and environmental activism to explore the role of personality type on behavior. Through this study, I hope to further the research being done on sensory processing sensitivity and provide new insight on the intersection of evolutionary psychology and ecopsychology.
