    I consider myself to be an HSP, as I have always been physically sensitive (bright lights, loud noises, sensitive skin) and emotionally sensitive (sense others feelings, experience strong personal emotions, extreme dislike of conflict).

    In my opinion, it is part and parcel of being an INFJ. All of my senses are highly acute, which means I get overwhelmed easily, but can detect extremely weak or subtle phenomena which other people miss.

    And if I only could,
    I'd make a deal with God,
    And I'd get him to swap our places,
    Be running up that road,
    Be running up that hill,
    With no problems.

    I can't stand superstores. I hate high ceilings. They bother me, for some reason. And there's always this half plastic, half rubber smell hanging around them...

    For some reason, Walmart and Costco are much, much worse than Target.

    Activity doesn't bother me, noise doesn't bother me (unless it's loud and too sudden), but I don't like the flourescent lights of superstores, either.

    I'm overly sensitive to body chemistry changes, but I doubt that this is the same thing.

    Bright lights and intense loud noises over a long period of time. Of course INTJ's can be almost hypersensetive to rejection (true and I do not like to be made to look foolish) but I have learned to work with this issue now that I know it exists.

    I'm an extrovert and very much so an HSP. (Apparently, we make up only 30% of the HSP population).

    I also firmly believe that NFs, and by extension, INFs, are the most likely prone MBTI type to also be HSPs.
