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

Always considered myself an "introverted-extrovert", but it wasn't until I read Elaine Aron's book that the feelings had a named form.

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

"Highly Sensitive Person" along with a number of citations.

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

Well...I've belonged to a number of Meetup groups that I really would like to go and enjoy, but the thought of a big, loud, fast moving group of strangers saps the energy right out of me. As a professional I have little problem presenting and speaking to an audience, but in my private time I like a quiet and softly lit enviornment.

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?

Something that would allow creating, learning or building while socializing with a group of folks. Tasks are a great way to help focus on something if the socializing gets overstimulating and fun to see what others create. Some events I've planned and/or attended before are; Pottery, painting, wood working, basket weaving, outdoor herb walk, candle & soap making and cooking classes.

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

Friendship with other HSP'ers would be great! Meeting a few activity buddies who enjoy some of the same hobbies I do (scuba diving, motorcycle riding, traveling, moderate hiking/walking, movies, technology, etc.) would be a super-cool bonus.


Hi Fellow HSP'ers. Happy to see a group exists that I might not shy away from attending; at least I figure the Meetups will be in an HSP-friendly enviornment and not a crowded bar. Hope to meet many of you in the coming months. :) LeAnne
