I read most of the books when I was in undergrad (5+ years ago) and they really helped me feel “normal.”  I believe I am HSP.

I’m introverted and first read about HSP’s in the book “Quiet”. I’m not sure that I’m 100% HSP, but I definitely have a touch of it. I am extremely tuned into other people’s emotions, body language, exterior noise, etc.

I’ve never heard of HSP. Does it mean easily offended or thin skinned? Or is it a broader anxiety/stress Issue? I certainly have my fair share of anxiety!

Yes, I am. I discovered Elaine’s book through a counselor, years ago. Majority of it really clicked for me and made so much sense.<br /><br />It definitely makes some things a heck of a lot harder… For instance, I know I catch myself thinking deeply into things, way more then I should be.

And if I am around someone when they are angry, it is really hard not to feel angry myself. Same goes for someone who is really sad, my heart literally breaks along with theres.

Periodically, I think about getting into psychology because I find the human brain so intriguing, but also because I just enjoy helping others… but I can’t imagine taking in clients who are going through a tragedy. Sometimes I can watch an emotional movie and be devastated for days… working through that with a real life person? I can only imagine what life would be like coming home after that. I think I would fall into depression pretty quick working in that field.

I read this book when I was about 15, it really helped me to understand why I was the way I was and that I wasn’t a weirdo. I just took the test, and looks like I am still a HSP. 🙂

mirandamak:  Me, too! I have a BA in Psychology with a focus on Clinical & Counseling Psych. but even just watching videos of real counseling sessions in Psych class affected me so much that I realized it wouldn’t be the right career path for me.

I am a highly sensitive person. I become sentimental very easily. It got me in a lot of trouble growing up. But now I realize I’m just more sensitive than others. I feel things very deeply.
