The Highly Sensitive Person

The Highly Sensitive Person by Elaine Aron
HSPs (Highly Sensitive Person) do take in a lot - all the subtleties others miss.  But what seems ordinary to others, like loud music or crowds, can be highly stimulating and thus stressful for HSP's.

Most people ignore sirens, glaring lights, strange odors, clutter and chaos.  HSP's are disturbed by them.

Most people's feet may be tired at the end of a day in a mall or a museum, but they're ready for more when you suggest an evening party.  HSPs need solitude after such a day.  They feel jangled, over aroused.

Most people walk into a room and perhaps notice the furniture, the people - that's about it.  HSPs can be instantly aware, whether they wish to be or not, of the mood, the friendships and enmities, the freshness or staleness of the air, the personality of the one who arranged the flowers.
