Interesting facts about HSP:

  • It is innate. In fact, biologists have found it in over 100 species (and probably there are many more) from fruit flies, birds, and fish to dogs, cats, horses, and primates. This trait reflects a certain type of survival strategy, being observant before acting. The brains of highly sensitive persons (HSP's) actually work a little differently than others. To learn more about this, see Research.
  • You are more aware than others of subtleties. This is mainly because your brain processes information and reflects on it more deeply. You see more than others by noticing more.
  • You are more easily overwhelmed. If you notice everything, you are naturally going to be overstimulated when things are too intense, complex, chaotic, or novel for long periods of time.
  • This trait is not a new discovery, but it has been misunderstood. Because HSP's prefer to look before entering new situations, they are often called "shy." But shyness is learned, not innate. In fact, 30% of HSP's are extroverts, although the trait is often mislabeled as introversion. It has also been called inhibitedness, fearfulness, or neuroticism. Some HSP's behave in these ways, but it is not innate to do so and not the basic trait.
  • Sensitivity is valued differently in different cultures. In cultures where it is not valued, HSP's tend to have low self-esteem. They are told "don't be so sensitive" so that they feel abnormal.
