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

Well, I took the test from Elaine Aron's website as you recommended and tested as an HSP. I've read books on Myers Briggs and Keirsey Temperament and taken these tests too and have tested as an INFP. I learned about the group by surfing the meetup groups for INFP and voila your group popped up.

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

Yes, I have read Elaine Aron's "The Highly Sensitive Person" and "The Highly Sensitive Person in Love". I've also read "The Highly Sensitive Person's Companion : Daily Exercises for Calming Your Senses in an Overstimulating World" by Ted Zeff.

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

I feel stressed if too much starts happening at once. I've worked hard to keep my life low maintenance (ie I rent and don't own a house, I'm very selective in the kinds of jobs I've chosen so that I'm working with people who are flexible and reasonable).

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 enjoy hiking, biking, walking, wine tasting, dinner/lunch out.

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

I would love to form some good friendships with people who are empathetic and share similar values with me. I'm really looking forward to meeting with this group.


Hi I'm Tammy and I live in Edmonds. I am an INFP and am looking forward to more meetups with this group. I believe I will find people who share similar values, experiences and views of the world. See you soon! Tammy
