    makes perfect sense for sensory defensiveness. On the outside I am tough as hell. But when it comes to physical things, I barely can hold a hot cup of coffee for longer than a second.

    I think it's more easily identified if a person has elements of both. But, I would guess that if an individual has a fair amount of physical sensitivity, then it can tend to make them emotionally sensitive as well, because their bodies are responding constantly to sensory stimuli and can overload easily.

    I have no idea what a highly sensitive person is, other than just being oversensitive.

    I think I'm oversensitive in some ways... particularly to sudden changes that I don't choose, and to being disliked. I'm also rather aware of other people's emotional states to some degree, but I'd call this average awareness.

    But probably not quite as sensitive as other people to many other things.

    I think IFPs are the most highly sensitive if you want to associate it with MBTI type. They can dwell on an emotion and exaggerate it to a ridiculous degree, IMO.

    That's not sensory defensiveness. That's low pain threshold.

    Sensory defensiveness is more vomiting at the touch of nylon.

    I'm sensitive. I don't think there's a strong type correlation. If anything, I'd think I, then F, but I don't think it's significant.

    Concerning Sensivitiness, I made a great mistake just now.

    There is a whole bunch of lamenting people in a chat I am in right now. they hear pretty awful ultra romantic songs and I wanted to bring some fire into the round.

    Oh gosh one of the people there just lost her husband + kid in a car crash.

    I am such a damn idiot -.-

    My whole family (me, my INTP husband, and our four kids {INTJ, INFP, EXTX, and IXTP}) all appear to have HSP traits, but we also have autism in the family and autism frequently has sensory symptoms. Most people notice that our house is a pretty quiet place.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I get very distressed when put on the spot; one of the reasons I left Sixth Form was due to the small classroom sizes. I've always had a strong physiological response. I keep my eyes shut if a band has a light show, I shut several doors when someone is using a glass chopping board.

    I think the amount of sleep I've had has a huge effect on all this.
