    As I understand it, it isn't restricted to type.

    I'm a HSP - I seem to have a lower threshhold for bright lights or sustained loud noises, and if I can't get away from them, I feel rattled.

    Most of the people I know that are HSPs are F types. But that's just the people I know though.

    Reading the wiki, it seems this term could apply to many people. I guess it's a nicer term than shyness/skittishness. It'd be hard to test since I doubt the average "sensitivity" is known, and probably many people would like to see themselves as more sensitive than the norm, so I suspect the accuracy is low.

    My INFP mom says she's HSP, but she self-diagnoses as a lot of things, I've stopped paying attention. Reading the description though, it does sound like her (and me for that matter). Probably correlates with I and F especially, though not exclusively. Sounds like a very NF term, though, and I've heard more INFPs talking about it than any other type whenever the topic is brought up.

    I would agree with that in general, although I have a ESFP close friend who's daughter is an ESTP, and she's very sensitive. Not emotionally, but physically. Seemed like the poor girl was constantly having allergic reactions to things, or being overwhelmed by situations where there was a great deal of sensory imput.

    Ah, well it seems I have got the term wrong.

    I am HSP to dog barks. When they bark, I shrug together and bark back. They bark again, I bark back. They bark again I bark back. This can go on for hours xD

    Is HSP correlated to sensory defensiveness? Or are they completely different?

    I am not an HSP, but I do understand the distinction and personally know a couple people who I'd consider HSPs. My mind tends to make judicious use of the squelch knob for most intense things (sensory or emotional); in fact I often feel I'm too desensitized to a lot of things, and that makes me feel bored/dumb at times.

    I don't think you're an HSP if you just have emotional sensitivity or just physical sensitivity...don't you need both to be an HSP?
