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

My physician recommended that I read Aron's book about HSP since she suspected I was an HSP. It rang very true to me.

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

I read the first one, The Highly Sensitive Person and just ordered the accompanying workbook. I'm also reading the the bestselling book "Quiet", which has a lot of overlap with HSP.

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

I just left a job that had an open workspace that absolutely drove me to distraction. It was noisy, and the floor actually vibrated. The kitchen was in the middle of the open area, so you could smell everyone's lunch being heated up. There weren't enough closed meeting rooms, but lots of collaboration pods. It was an HSP nightmare.

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?

Just meeting to talk sounds great to me! I guess there could be variations, meet at a restaurant, meet outdoors, meet at a coffee shop, meet to discuss a specific book or topic. Any sort of guest speakers would be great.

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

I'd like to meet other people like me, I feel I'm surrounded by robust extroverts who don't understand me.


I live in Seattle, by myself since it's quieter. No pets, no children, just peace and tranquility when I'm home.
