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

For 10 or so years, but was recently told I might want to read The Highly Sensitive Child as well to gain further insight into influences from my childhood and has been an eye-opening. This inspired me to see if there was a meetup group for HSPs.

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

Yes!

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

I often feel sensory overload when I go to a busy and/crowded place for an extended amount of time. I pick up on other people's moods. Etc!

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?

I enjoy anything in nature, movies, art (both making and appreciating), theater, music, yummy food...

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

all of the above!

Introduction

I read the HSP book many years ago and strongly identified with so much that was written. I look forward to meeting other HSP's!
