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

I never knew that there was such a thing as an "HSP" before, but I definitely am one. Crowds make me uncomfortable. I like bird-watching. I have trouble concentrating when there are several sources of noise around me, and will feel as though the noises are louder than they might be to others. I am more sensitive to bright lights than most people. How'd I learn about this group? Just by accident, as I was browsing around Meetup.

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

I haven't read thoroughly any of them, but now have just finished the first chapter of her first book, understanding better how I very likely do fit into the HSP category.

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

I feel I can help others talk about their feelings, and realize the nuances in how those feelings should be described. I do mystery shopping, and it involves being able to make mental note of many details in order to write them down in a report later. I've done it for years now, and perhaps the reason that I've stuck with it and enjoy it so is that I'm an HSP. As I understand it, HSPs are often sticklers for details being correct. That is so true for me.

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?

Going out to eat; walking through gardens/the Arboretum; canoeing/kayaking; lessons in ____boarding; bowling (though I'm awful in it); trip to dog park, etc.

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

Friendship, activity partners
