I was browsing a book store and came across Elaine's book in 2007. I was amazed to read her description of characteristics, some that I identify with, and some that I had tuned into in others - the people who feel like family to me. I learned about the group because I had been seeking information since reading Elaine's books and I found Peter's blog online. I was excited to see this group start up.
The first and the second, and many of her articles.
I seem to be moderately sensitive on the emotionally empathic side, and HSS for the sake of learning. I have always been sensitive to others, but not to light and sound. I do need quiet time alone, however. So perhaps there is an HSP range or variability in these traits. I wish most for improved understanding and communication between people.
Discussions. Sharing what matters. Going on walks. I love the Japanese Tea Ceremony in the arboretum.
I am a forest ecologist, ENFP, and travel with my family up and down the West Coast. I value a genuine exchange of ideas with others.
I am looking forward to future events.
