When and how did you become aware that you're an HSP? How did you learn about our group?

Read the book. I am Masters of Science in Psychology student and found the research by Aron & Aron (1997, http://www.hsperson.com/pdf/JPSP_Aron_and_Aron_97_Sensitivity_vs_I_and_N.pdf) very near what I personally experience.

Have you read any of Elaine Aron's books about the HSP trait? Which ones?

"The Highly Sensitive Person" by Elaine Aron and "Making Work Work for the Highly Sensitive Person" by Barrie Jaeger

Please tell us a bit about how being Highly Sensitive affects your life. We honestly aren't trying to be nosy. But because we're set up as a "real life" social group, it is helpful for members to share something about themselves when they join.

Very sensitive to sound, lights, touch, and smells. I am not introverted, but need time to rejuvenate frequently. Very empathic, so much so that I am overwhelmed by other people's presences sometimes. I used to think I was the only one!

In addition to our monthly discussion meetings, what other activities would you like to see offered?

Reading, video games with the kids (and the hubby). School and research. I like quiet get-togethers that are enriching but not loud and all-consuming.

What do you hope to get from your membership in our HSP meetup? (i.e. friendship, activity partners, support, networking, etc)

Meet other like-minded individuals who enjoy what I do and understand my "sensitivities" without judgment. :-)

Introduction

Hello, My name is Lori and I am HSP, INFJ, and recently told I was an adult indigo(?). Anyway, I have a spiritual support group in Tacoma that meets at the same time as many of your outings, but I hope to be able to join you soon.
