Hyperesthetic Personality Disorder

The Hyperesthetic Personality results from desiring, needing, and delighting in superiority; and from fearing, and being distressed by, inferiority.


  1. Tender sensibility
  2. Sensitivity to nature and art
  3. Tact and taste in personal style
  4. Sentimental affection for certain individuals
  5. Hypersensitivity and vulnerablity with regard to the daily irritations of life
  6. Passion working in combination with 'complexes'

I forgot to cite this and I've forgotten where I got it. I think it is Theodore Millon quoting or paraphrasing Ernst Kretschmer.
