Dear Quiz: Are You Overly Sensitive?

Though being in touch with your emotions and knowing how to communicate them is a great trait, letting your emotions get the best of you can lead to more trouble and stress than it's worth. We all have our soft spots, but having a thick skin is important, too, otherwise you can end up an emotional wreck. Obviously, some of us are more sensitive than others, so take this quiz to see if you're too sensitive!

It says tough as nails, but I don't think that's correct. I know I can be emotional and know which situations usually spark it so I can try to handle it better. But, I have been known to over-react (which I later regret)... or maybe tear up when otherwise wouldn't. But I'm ok with it - and don't think it's excessive!

Emotionally balanced You have a tough enough exterior to know when to not take things personally, but a soft enough interior to give into your emotions when appropriate.

I'm tough as nails? I think I'm pretty sensitive. I just keep it to myself.

Tough as nails With these kind of locked-up emotions, you're probably a lot better at poker than letting people in. A dose of sensitivity doesn't make you weak, so try giving into your vulnerabilities and see what happens.

According to this quiz, I'm "tough as nails"...but I definitely don't think that's the case. I'm pretty sensitive, but not overly so.

I think I'm better at not being too senstive than I used to, but, for example, the other night I asked my boyfriend to get me another cupcake and he said 'Another? How many have you had already?!" (I'd had 3 already but I'm like 5'3 and 100 lbs and always eat healthy except during certain circumstances--this was one of those times! I love cupcakes!!) I got pretty upset by what he said, even though he was joking, and my best friend and her husband both said 'That was rude!' right after he said it. He felt bad the rest of the night and apologized over and over. So I guess I'm a little overly sensitive but I get over things pretty quickly...
