    ^ The commericals are the WORST. Especially during the news, all those drug ads. I don't want to hear about all those medical conditions when I am trying to relax. It's bad enough when someone needs medications for illness, we don't need to be reminded of sickness and such every damn day during dinner.

    Then all those cheesey viagra commercials. Viva Vigara! Get a room grandpa, I don't want to see it!

    Then at night, the curious cowboy, the bored legal teen hotties just waiting to talk to thirty something nerd losers on the phone, yeah right, and then endless infomercials.

    docuhes, itching, maxi pads! Pepto-Bismol, Kaopectate! Tums Commericals where people gorge themselves and then need quick relief.... Ugh.---believe me if you need it, you know where to find it, don't need a commerical!

    Then the screeching songs in some of the car ads, OMG, kill me now!

    I agree with Silently Honest's approach on being assertive. As a dominant alpha-male, I have no tolerance for insubordination in my territory. If the shit goes down, I don't mess around. When the beta's dissent from my authority I first of all, walk in wearing a pair of lederhosen with no shirt. So right off the bat they know the situation is serious. Second, I unleash a series of muscle flexing poses to reinforce who's boss before addressing the problem at hand; Doilies on the furniture? I don't think so. Curtains with flowers on them? Ain't gonna happen. Loud stereo? Yeah, you better turn that down. Once the beta's submit, I conclude by letting off a thundering war cry and fist pounding against my massive pectoral muscles, before finally retreating back to the mancave/harem.

    But don't non-HSPs need that stimulation?

    Yes, for some it *is* necessary, and it isn't a crime, it just becomes a problem when it's imposed on others.

    Even it works out, I think I'll still have to leave a lot.
    Pardon my ignorance. What is HSP? Thank you for any info you can provide!

    I have HSP tendencies, too, but I do understand that I can't ask everyone in the world to adjust their habits for me. Generally, the compromise is that I understand that if someone's watching a movie, they generally want to watch it loud. I'll either deal or politely ask them to turn it down a notch or so. I usually mute the commercials, no matter what. I just can't stand them, and usually people don't care about watching them anyway. The one thing I can't stand is loud sports on tv, though. The best solution for that is separate tv rooms for such occasions. That or me leaving the house.

    If someone has to go to bed early to be at work the next day, it's rude for the remaining people not to turn the tv down. If they go to bed at 6 for no reason, they can't really expect people to act like it's not still awake-time for the rest of the world.

    Bottom line, I guess, it's just politeness and consideration. The HSP can expect to be taken into consideration, but probably can't expect to have his or her way all the time. Sometimes, they need to leave the house and do something else so that the others can enjoy their entertainment the way they like it.

    This is why I can't have roommates - Sensitivity to sound and motion would cause sleeplessness, which leaves me strung out and irritated. Plus, some people are obnoxious, completely inconsiderate brats about when (3 AM? Great!) and how much disturbance they cause and I'd rather not get into pointless arguments with them.
