Interpersonal sensitivity is defined in recent years as a stable and aggregate personality trait characterized by consistent concerns about negative social evaluation, high vigilance and sensitivity to others’ evaluations, and defensive behaviors such as submission and inhibition to avoid negative social evaluation.

Effective methods for measuring interpersonal sensitivity is in need so as to integrate relevant models, to understand how interpersonal sensitivity affects health, and to improve psychological intervention and disease prevention.
