YES. I have some hearing loss that apparently makes the bass in music really annoying. Despite my partial deafness, I’m still super sensitive to the volume at which music is played. So dances, concerts, etc. make me pretty uncomfortable. It’s going to be an interesting reception for me. ;P 

In random places in life, mechanical noises can really bother me. Garbage trucks are pretty horrible, along with some HVAC systems.

Yes. I tend to get overwhelmed by too much stimulus, so there are many times I just need to find a dim, quiet corner or somehow create that kind of space for me. If the tv has been on all day (sports), I may have enjoyed every minute of it, but I’ll still need some quiet time a half hour or so before bedtime to decompress.

Yes, I am sensitive to certain sounds as well.  Sometimes, I need to go to a quiet space to get away from noise that’s bothering me.  I get overstimulated fast.

Yes. I don’t know what causes my sensitivity but I have it. Mine is so bad that I can NOT sleep without ear plugs. I feel like I hear everything that is going on. It sucks 🙁
