⚂  http://talentdevelop.com/ This is the site of Douglas Eby.

⚂  http://www.hsperson.com/ This is a theory developed by Elaine Aron. She describes "over-sensitivities" that are like allergies and suggests that people who experience these "over-sensitivities" need to identify them and learn to avoid them in life. For example, if a person has an increased sensitivity to flourescent lights, they need to avoid exposure to these lights. I don't think one could stretch this concept to apply to what Dąbrowski described as overexcitabilities, as far as I see, they are simply different ideas. I include the link here because people may associate Aron's work with Dąbrowski because of her use of the term oversensitivity.
