“A highly sensitive person (HSP) is a person having the innate trait of high sensory processing sensitivity.
According to Elaine N. Aron, highly sensitive people, who compose about a fifth of the population, may process sensory data much more deeply and thoroughly due to a biological difference in their nervous systems.
Being a highly sensitive person is a specific trait, with key consequences for how we view people, that in the past has often been confused with innate shyness, social anxiety problems, inhibitedness, social phobia and innate fearfulness, and introversion. The trait is measured using the HSP Scale, which has been demonstrated to have both internal and external validity.” – Via Wikipedia Commons
