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

I can't remember when I became aware of the term HSP, but I always felt that I was more sensitive and easily overwhelmed than most. I learned about this group when it came up in a meetup search for book clubs.

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

Yes, I read The Highly Sensitive Person

How have you experienced being an HSP? Please share a couple of examples of how being Highly Sensitive affects your life.

I'm easily overwhelmed when there are a lot of strong stimuli in my environment. Ditto when I've got a packed schedule. I tend to stay away from parties. I like interacting with people one-on-one or in small groups.

What sort of activities do you enjoy? Besides just "meeting to talk," what sort of activities (if any) would you enjoy, as part of an HSP meetup group?

Discussing books, going to museums, going on hikes, taking day trips, wine tasting

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

friendship and networking
