    Default Highly Sensitive Person

    Hey is anyone here highly sensitive? I don't really have a thread topic or a point--I just wanted to know what y'all experiences were. What positive sides have you found to being a HSP? I have trouble differentiating it from introversion. Blah, no one's gonna read this, oh well...

    I usually score pretty high on those HSP tests, but mostly because I hate loud noises and chaos in the environment. I get sensory overload unless I'm drugged or alcoholled up.

    And you're right, run, a lot of the stuff is generalized introversion. Not really "sensitive" as in emotionally sensitive, though that is a component.

    The video games on in the apartment right now are driving me up the goddamn wall.

    I also want to know if this bothers anybody:

    the "DOT ORG" I find so irritating, it almost makes me yell whenever I hear it, so I try to remember turning the volume down at the beginning of the clips.

    There's already a thread about HSP on here somewhere, if you everyone's initial responses.

    I'd say I'm a HSP--very sensitive to being overwhelmed with crowds, loud noises, annoying noises, etc. I'm also pretty sensitive to my environment, as far as it affecting my mood. However, I like loud music, for instance, if it's MY loud music that I have chosen to listen to.

    I don't know about positive characteristics of being an HSP. So far, it's just annoying, and people who can tune stuff out are baffled when you say something's bothering you.

    I hate noise.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I have noise and touch HSP. Dishwashers, washing machines, rattling panels in a car door.. all drive me a bit crazy. I also can't stand the labels on clothes rubbing my skin (I end up removing them from clothes to make them tolerable).

    I'm quite a calm, placid person.. so these really do feel like a "condition" that I have.
