    I'm not highly sensitive, but associate it with ISFJ.

    I was one, when I was a kid. I still am but I try to keep it up for situations, when it is worth spending.

    Could have something to do with mbti. For me it was: I was thinking that I see so much more than others about the world, through Ne than they do and I wanted them to understand that. Of course that didnt worked out, cause I was just beginning to grasp things and could not really explain them. I dressed gothic and bought a nice dark leather coat I still have .

    Today I see things different. There are still alot of people, who are idiots. But I began to concentrate my efforts on understanding the world not inward into myself, but outward with some people, who see things like I do. Like on the forums here for example. That helps to elevate some of the stress.

    And furthermore I have began to reason about things and to not let my feelings cloud my judgement.

    There are still moments I go high wire and start to%

    I think it overlaps with a number of types and is definitely not confined to ISFJ.

    Yes. I am most certainly a Highly Sensitive Person, and I am an INFP. It probably does relate to type. Just from my personal observations, I've noticed that INFPs are more succeptible to anxiety disorders and sleep paralysis than other types, and that INTPs, who are similar to INFPs, are likely to suffer from these same problems as well as depression, paranoia, and personality disorders. Perhaps these types are more likely to experience a hightened sensitivity, and maybe that sensitivity is the source of the other psychological problems.

    This is not to say that we are the only types who can fall into the HSP category, but it does seem that many of us are Highly Sensitive People, moreso than is probably common for the other types. For instance, the explosive ESTJ is probably not going to be as emotionally receptive as an implosive INFP because the ESTJ self primarily pushes internal things outward instead of pulling external things inward. They flow differently and would not be likely to have the same vulnerabilities. The very form of the ESTJ personality would prevent or protect against invasion. The INFP might not have the same boundaries because many of us can't help but draw in all that we experience. The INTPs might do this with objective information, while the INFPs are likely to do this with emotions. Either can overwhelm a person. I can't relate to the S experience, but I imagine sensory overload would have a similar effect. I just don't have enough information about the S types yet. This is an interesting topic. I can hardly wait to see which types respond to this thread.

    Looking at the wikipedia entry, it seems vaguely IJ-ish.

    Unless I'm missing something that dear wiki hasn't supplied me with?
