  1. First, a variant of the norm – increased sensitivity to aesthetics, beauty and grace. It is typical for those who do this professionally (not all of them) – artists, musicians, etc.

    The second is a pathogenic psychic defense, also called hyperaesthetism; a distraction to the same beautiful and sublime in order to avoid, respectively, the terrible and base (in oneself and others, of course).

  2. For example, the updated sixth step of Maslow's pyramid of needs.

    To do this, it is necessary that the previous five steps are met at least at an acceptable level.

  3. I think that the “sense of beauty” is a kind of ability to feel beautiful. This feeling cannot be” sharpened”. At best, we can talk about its development. A well-thought-out system of socialization, including the formation of interests ,” motives and needs of the individual, his social attitudes, focused on aesthetic values, ” can lead to the development of a sense of beauty in the individual. Although, as I said, this feeling is still based on a certain ability or, if you want, a natural gift.

  4. High degree of concentration and awareness.�

    A person who is “half asleep” (as Salas describes it, for example), in a low degree of awareness, is not able to notice details. And beauty is always in the details: in the color of the strip of sky above the horizon, in the shine of dew on the grass, in the tilt of the girl's head…

  5. When abstract, idealized fragments of reality replace a complete picture of the world. Perception is distorted towards the priority of the aesthetic aspect over the practical one.�

    It is extremely rare as a pathology. Refers to an individual's innate constitution.

  6. You need to be able to perceive beauty=)
    I think that a heightened sense of beauty is a developed ability of the human brain.

    This is also a skill, like the ability to cook delicious food or speak English, or do push-ups.
    And if it is a skill, the ego can be developed.
    At work, I need to know which color combinations are pleasing to the eye and which are not, and how they affect a person. See the proportions of objects relative to each other and their surroundings. Separate the beautiful from the ugly.

    You feel beauty especially strongly the first time you see it. The face of a stranger, a view of the mountains, or an unexpected sun glare from a stained-glass window in the sun. That's why I love traveling to cities with history! Impressions of cities never seen before are very vivid and always memorable. Nature is always impressive. And it is also a good benchmark for comparing architecture-sometimes a plus and sometimes a minus. For example, I really remember the Okko hotel Nantes in Nantes (France). A stunning example of the design. And at the same time – how inhospitable the Paris metro is…

    Our life usually consists of repetitive actions. Home-work-shopping, sometimes parks theaters restaurants, trips to the country. Over time, everyday life merges into one band, in which it is difficult to see the beautiful new.
    I try to notice how beautifully the snowflakes glisten, I look at the veins of marble slabs on the walls of the metro. I'm looking for new channels on YouTube. I look at recent articles on websites about interior design in different languages. You need to consciously look for beauty around you – and try to create it or at least not spoil it.
