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

I realized I was an HSP from reading Elaine Aron’s book. I came across this meetup by chance.

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

Yes, “The Highly Sensitive Person” I also subscribe to Elaine’s mailing list.

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

I can become emotionally overwhelmed very easily, not always at the most convenient times. I need a lot of quiet time, which has made people view me as distant & unengaged.

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 being outdoors, being in nature, I go whenever I can & love hiking in the mountains. Any hiking or outdoor activity will interest me.

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

Friendship & support


I was born & grew up in New Zealand; I came to the US about 24 years ago as a Post Doc & stayed to work in Biopharmaceuticals. I have lived in Seattle about 8 years. I have a broad range of interests from the Arts to outdoor activities.

What Richard B is saying about this Meetup Group

Very helpful and supportive
