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.
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.
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.
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.
Friendship, activity partners
