Highly Sensitive Person

A highly sensitive person is a person having the innate trait of high sensory processing sensitivity.



Highly sensitive people may process sensory data much more deeply and thoroughly due to a biological difference in the nervous system. This has often been confused with innate shyness,

social anxiety problems, inhibitedness, social phobia ,fearfulness and introversion ( Athough some HSP’s are extroverts) The trait is measured using the HSP Scale, which is demonstrated to have both internal and external validity.
