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

I can't remember when I became aware of the term HSP, but I always felt that I was more sensitive and easily overwhelmed than most. I learned about this group when it came up in a meetup search for book clubs.

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

Yes, I read The Highly Sensitive Person

Please tell us a bit about how being Highly Sensitive affects your life. We honestly aren't trying to be nosy. But because we're set up as a "real life" social group, it is helpful for members to share something about themselves when they join.

I'm easily overwhelmed when there are a lot of strong stimuli in my environment. Ditto when I've got a packed schedule. I tend to stay away from parties. I like interacting with people one-on-one or in small groups.

In addition to our monthly discussion meetings, what other activities would you like to see offered?

Discussing books, going to museums, going on hikes

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

friendship and support

Introduction

Hi, I'm looking forward to meeting other HSP's.
