What is a Highly Sensitive Person?
A Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) is an individual who possesses a heightened level of sensitivity to various stimuli, including emotions, sensory experiences, and external environments.
Unlike the majority, HSPs process information more deeply and thoroughly, often noticing subtleties that others might overlook. This heightened sensitivity can encompass emotional, social, and physical aspects of their lives.
How Highly Sensitive People Experience Life
Emotionally, HSPs tend to experience feelings intensely, both their own emotions and the emotions of those around them. They are deeply empathetic, often able to understand and share the emotions of others.
Socially, they may be more affected by the moods and energies of people they interact with, sometimes needing more time alone to recharge from social interactions.
Sensory sensitivity is also common among HSPs. They may be more sensitive to loud noises, bright lights, strong smells, or rough textures. These sensitivities can sometimes be overwhelming, leading them to seek out calm and quiet environments.
It’s important to note that being a Highly Sensitive Person is not a flaw or a disorder. It is simply a natural trait that exists in about 15-20% of the population.
HSPs play a crucial role in society, often being deeply creative, intuitive, and compassionate individuals. Understanding and embracing this trait can lead to a more fulfilling and balanced life for highly sensitive individuals.
