Objective: Sensory-processing sensitivity (SPS) is a construct which includes a tendency for deep and precise processing of emotional information. Some research has indicated that subjects with a high SPS are vulnerable to negative emotions, if they have been subject to negative parenting styles. The present study inquires into the relationship of SPS with parenting styles, and anxiety and depression. 
Method: The Highly Sensitive SensoryProcessing Person Scale, the Parenting Style Inventory, Beck Depression Inventory and Spielberger's State-Trait Anxiety Inventory were completed by 372 male undergraduate students. Data was analyzed using multiple regression analysis and analysis of variance. 
Results: SPS was significantly associated with anxiety, depression and parenting style. The association of SPS with anxiety was stronger than with depression, and SPS did not predict depression after controlling for anxiety. Interaction effects were also significant, indicating that the role of SPS in the prediction of indices of psychopathology also depends on parenting style.
Conclusion: The interaction of SPS with negative parenting styles can render individuals vulnerable to psychopathologies.
