Sensory Stories # 83: Face-to-face vs virtual engagements

Posted: 26 April, 2023

By: Marieta du Toit


Today, Marieta talks about face-to-face versus online or digital engagements.

As a sensory root, an individual with low sensory thresholds, Marieta prefers online or digital engagements especially when it comes to work-related tasks or meetings. Her auditory and visual senses are easily overloaded so this mode of engagement gives her more control. She can play with the volume, use earphones to block out distracting background noise, choose whether to see everyone at the same time or just the person speaking at that moment. She does sometimes prefer engaging face-to-face, particularly for small social gatherings.
