You Were Described As Sensitive Or Shy As A Child:

You were the kid who knew what somebody was about to say before they said it. You reacted strongly to changes in your environment. Maybe you were the one who paused to watch before jumping into the game. Aron emphasizes that while most HSPs have been labeled shy, a full 30 percent have not and would be described as extroverted. She notes that some observers, like Susan Cain in her best-selling book Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Canít Stop Talking, may really be talking about sensitivity when they discuss introversion. Being highly reactive to stimuli does not necessarily mean you donít seek out crowds or new acquaintances, although it often does. The key underlying trait is sensitivity, not inhibition. Some HSPs are actually sensation-seekers ó stimuli can bring them intense pleasure as well as discomfort. - See more at: http://beyondblindfold.com/6-signs-you-could-be-a-highly-sensitive-person.html#sthash.wqaL7rSK.dpuf

You Pick Up Subtleties In Your Environment:

 
 
 
The HSPís brain processes information and reflects on it more deeply. One thing HSPs share is the tendency to notice things others might not pick up on so readily, like the mood of a teacher or the rearrangment of furniture in a room. An artificial sweetener might taste like a chemical experiment, and someoneís slightly off-key singing might sound like a fingernail on a chalkboard. HSPs might also have noticed a tendency to detect when someone is telling a lie, or intuit another personís feelings. - See more at: http://beyondblindfold.com/6-signs-you-could-be-a-highly-sensitive-person.html#sthash.wqaL7rSK.dpuf

You Can Easily Become Overwhelmed:

 
 
 
Too much intensity, chaos and noise can wreak havoc on an HSP, which is why they often work better in quiet environments. When they are able to concentrate, HSPs are excellent at work that requires deep thinking and fast turnover. But turn up the volume around them and ask them to do too many things at once and they become overloaded. If youíre the kind of person who feels the need to retreat by yourself after a trip or an outing with friends or a busy day, you might be an HSP. Part of managing life for an HSP (or somebody who is close to one) is understanding and respecting the need for extra time to regroup and making allowances for your particular work style. - See more at: http://beyondblindfold.com/6-signs-you-could-be-a-highly-sensitive-person.html#sthash.wqaL7rSK.dpuf

You Fall Hard And Fast:

 
 
 
Aron has devoted an entire book, The Highly Sensitive Person in Love, to the topic of HSPs and their style of loving. When they fall in love, they often feel tremendous ecstasy, and often very quickly, but they also feel anxiety, overstimulation and difficulty processing their intense emotions. Overstimulation and intensity can make intimacy difficult for HSPs, who are also the type of people who naturally seek it out. For HSPs, the risk of heartbreak and unhappy relationships is unfortunately higher than average, but understanding the trait and finding a partner who can be patient with it can increase the odds of success. - See more at: http://beyondblindfold.com/6-signs-you-could-be-a-highly-sensitive-person.html#sthash.wqaL7rSK.dpuf

You Are Conscientious:

 
 
 
HSPs tend to be conscientious people who try hard to perform their duties well and execute their work at their very best level. They often have particularly good manners, and notice when others donít. Rudeness and work that is full of errors drive them nuts. HSPs are often especially concerned with issues of social justice, and will fight hard to right wrongs in the world. - See more at: http://beyondblindfold.com/6-signs-you-could-be-a-highly-sensitive-person.html#sthash.wqaL7rSK.dpuf

You Have A Vivid Imagination:

 
 
 
HSPs are often very creative people. They have vivid dreams and can wander off into imaginary realms in their minds. They are also very empathetic and can imagine the thoughts and feelings of others. An interest in art, philosophy and spirituality is common. Carl Jung was one of the early psychologists most interested in HSPs (he used a different term), probably because he himself was one. He thought that people with ďinnate sensitivity,Ē as he put it, were more in touch with the unconscious mind and could be especially insightful.

If all of this sounds like you, you might just be a highly sensitive person, equipped with a temperament that requires special skills and knowledge to deal with. As Iím learning more about how this trait works in my own life, Iím grateful that Aron does not pathologize it, but treats it as something that simply is. Even for people who are not HSPs, information on the topic can surely be useful to parents, teachers, partners, and co-workers who have an HSP among them.
