    You have done well Seymour with HSP, what do you think of OE?

    Thank you both, @Mole and @Seymour for the replies.
    I'm going to read the link some, finish my dinner, then break down and create a thread about HSP in Psychology (after searching to make sure one's not already there lol). Don't want to derail this thread

    I imagine it would be interesting for HSP to manifest in an 'extrovert'. As I have it too. Very sensitive to too much information all at once, lights, sounds, taste, and my emotions(when I feel them anyway). Thus limiting such exposure. In my case, it could be oversensitive Ne data absorption.

    I've heard of an ENTJ with HSP supposedly... Idk how that works.

    I'm just wondering how it all works in theory. Because technically in a way it's like being extremely introverted

    My special gift in life is to be pessimistic. And pessimistic people make mistakes most often in their own favor. That's why I'm happy to be pessimistic.

    Probably my curiosity. I have this insatiable appetite to learn all I can, and although I'm a bit more settled these days, I did have a lot of wanderlust in my youth. I attribute this quality as the driving factor which allows me to get out of bed every day. It helps with finding opportunities and in seeing different ways of looking at things.
