This test is a helpful tool to raise awareness of our own or our childrens intensitivity, sensitivity and hyper-reactivity.
Taking our or our children’s Overexcitability (OE) into account will help grow understanding and compassions of our own and others (sometimes not helpful) behaviour, and will help us to see the positives of the innate Overexcitability.
Understanding your results
Read OE (Overexcitability) Introduction to understand your results of the Stress Scale Questionnaire more in detail.

OE (Overexcitability) is an element of a Developmental Theory –Theory of Positive Disintegration by Dabrowski- that is one of the underpinning theories of MERT (Multi-level Emotion Regulation Theory) developed by Simone de Hoogh. Overexcitability explains and allows us to look at ‘extreme’ behaviour as a valuable asset in our or our children’s life.
