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

Recently I saw the initials "HSP" in passing on a website and opened whole can of worms. Since I have been reading a lot and watching my own behavior.

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

I am almost done with first book and have workbook as well to read next.

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.

Little things here and there; always wondering why people don't compliment others when they get their haircut or come to work without their glasses. Took me a very long time that not everyone notices the small things.

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

I am really so interested in meeting others so I prefer to do some activities where we can still communicate. And no scary movies :)

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

Just find a group of people that understand that I don't like loud movies or music and enjoy very peaceful pursuits

Introduction

I am changing my introduction to this group because since learning of HSP I have done a lot of research and reading and I am very excited to meet other people that identify with HSP. I am interested in hearing other people's stories.

What brian is saying about this Meetup Group

I like the people but we should Meet elsewhere
