There are No Ambiverts - with Jenn Turnham

Update: 2022-05-02


One might assume that all Highly Sensitive People are introverts. In fact, only 70% of HSPs have this personality type. Years ago, I took a test to find out where I was on the continuum and was found to be in the middle, with a small shift towards extroversion. For years I have confidently referred to myself as an ambivert. I figured the remaining 30% would be split between extroverts and ambiverts.

Today, my guest threw that whole revelation out of the window. I must stand fully in my extroversion.

Jenn Turnham is on a mission to educate the world about the unique, brilliant, and often misunderstood, sub-section of the population known as Highly Sensitive Extroverts (HSP-Es), a group she believes possesses unique gifts that are in short supply in today’s world, and has powerful voices that need to be heard,

With her background in applied psychology (B. Psych, BWRT (Reg.), Jenn has been using her knowledge, training, and experience in helping people use the power of their minds to overcome challenges since 2008.  She now focuses on helping HSP-E women thrive in a world that currently doesn’t quite understand them.
