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

I am writing these answers to these questions kinda late and so I will be somewhat brief. I am in the middle of Susan Cain's book Quiet after stumbling upon it in Village Books in Fairhaven. She has done folks such as myself an amazing service. Of course, I have always known that I was introverted, but up until now, I had concluded that it was pathological. Society has a way of catering to the bold and the brash and marginalizing the reflective and the quiet.

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

I have not read her books yet. Susan Cain talks of her work and I figure that soon enough I will get my hands on some of her material.

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

I tend to be alone a lot. I am not a big party guy by any stretch of the imagination and I far prefer blending into the background than being the center of attention. My tendancy toward shyness has hindered me in many ways, but I have made great strides in many many ways over the years. I still have a ways to go, but it is a journey that I doubt ever ends.

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 work out very regularly at a local gym. i play guitar and am a novice songwriter. I recently bought a digital SLR and very much would love to learn how to use it. I very much enjoy hiking...As far as participating in a group like this, one of my main desires is to get to know people and making friends and acquaintances.

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

I hope to gain friendships mainly.


Hi. I am relatively new to the region. I am from Florida and have been here for three years. I live in Everett and work here as well. I am a Cardiac Sonographer. I am interested in meeting other folks of my ilk. You can blame this on Susan Cain
