Sensory Stories # 66: Choosing stores according to your thresholds

Posted: 16 November, 2022

By: Annemarie Lombard


Hi guys today we’re talking about what type of shop you enjoy.

When Marieta and I discussed the vlogs for this week and we talked about what type of shops we prefer, I was a little bit baffled, I was confused, I was like okay well I don’t really know what specific type of shop I enjoy and it made me think – actually I like any and all kinds of shops!
I’m a sensory seeker, I’ve got a high threshold so I really enjoy the variety and the differences that shops provide. If I go shopping I browse from store to store, often item to item and I get lost in the whole process and really enjoy navigating through them all. I particularly love a department store because you can buy clothes, you can buy food, you can buy homeware, there’s a combination of so many things available so typically that is the type of shop that I prefer.

So remember more is more! is often the case for our sensory seekers or people with high thresholds and “less is more” is definitely true for the sensory avoiders, the low threshold people. Then thank heavens for our sensory neutrals, the people with medium thresholds in this equation, you are most likely the ones that make sure that peace is being kept and that everyone’s needs are met when you go shopping with friends or as a family. So remember you are the flexible people who can mediate and navigate between them all. Here is some interesting information to understand human behaviour from a sensory perspective once again.
