HSP-The Highly Sensitive Person

dandelion-761759_1920

 

People who are highly sensitive are born that way; it is not something that is learned.

The scientific term for high sensitivity is “sensory-processing sensitivity” (SPS).

Highly sensitive people have the following traits:

  • They feel more deeply.
  • They’re more emotionally reactive.
  • They’re probably used to hearing “Why are you so sensitive?”
  • Highly sensitive people are introverts but 30% of HSP’s are extroverts.
  • They’re more prone to anxiety or depression
  • That annoying sound is probably significantly more annoying to a highly sensitive person
  • They cry more easily and are deeply empathetic to other people’s emotions.
  • Highly sensitive people have reactions to criticism that are more intense than less sensitive people
  • They’re crushed by bad decisions
  • They take longer to reach decisions
  • They are highly conscientious
  • They tend to be highly intuitive & can tell when someone they care about is upset
  • They are incredibly observant
  • They can be easily overwhelmed by bright lights, too much noise, big crowds, strong smells or uncomfortable clothing.

  1. How sad. Sounds like they are so easily overwhelmed.

    Questions: in all seriousness, fo they even *want* to get better? Or feel better? Or to not be annoyed by so many things? To have less anxiety? To feel more confident? To agonize less over decisions? Or—

    Do they just *Accept” the way they are and 7 yrs. from now they will be struggling just as much as ever? Or is this amplified feeling somehow a “badge-if-honor” and the latest pop-psych fad? I really want to know.

    Sigh. Somebody had to say it….
