Sensory Stories # 45: Breakaways… planned or spontaneous?

Posted: 26 July, 2022

By: Marieta du Toit


Most people love any opportunity they can get to go exploring and take a trip… so let’s talk about breakaways! What type of a planner are you? Are you a planner? Some people like to do things spontaneously but others need to think about it and have a plan in place.

Marieta answers these questions from the perspective of a sensory avoider or sensory root, someone with low sensory thresholds. She likes detail, routine and having structure. She prefers to plan things way ahead of time because she likes predictability. Her husband is a sensory seeker or sensory leaf, someone who can be impromptu and follow through with an idea without any planning. Watch the video to find out who you are more like and what this means about your unique sensory wiring.
