Am I Being Too Sensitive?
Here at noisenuisance.org we tend to be concerned about real problems – those that affect peoples’ personal comfort and well-being (and there are plenty of those!). However, levels of noise vary along with people’s perception of it’s severity. Occasionally, we come across people who are more sensitive to everyday issues than others.
We put together a quick quiz so that you can test your sensitivity. Just answer the following 15 questions (as honestly as you can) to find out how sensitive you are. Press the button to get started.
If you scored over half then you might be a sensitive person. There is no shame in that – often sensitive people are kind, generous and make good workmates. This quiz is no more than a bit of fun really so don’t be upset or disheartened if you score highly. In the UK many thousands of people with varying sensitivities suffer from noise nuisance problems each year. Whilst, sometimes, it can help to put the problem into perspective and think objectively you probably don’t need to answer a silly quiz to know whether your problem is real. Trust your instinct.
If you think you have an excessive noise problem the likelihood is that you’ll be much happier when you get it sorted. You can make a complaint to your local Council through our complaints page. Our noisy neighbour resources will help guide you through the complaints process.
