default Discussions on what highly sensitive people are all about

Post by melodiccolor on Fri Jan 07, 2011 5:56 pm

UPDATE IN 2018  About a year ago, our host changed our URL.  It took a while for me to realize this also meant that every single link posted before that time to other threads on this board became broken.  You'll need to either use search or note the date of the post and look manually around that time in the threads (over 90% of the links are in this subforum, so that helps) to find them now.  The links directly to other sites and articles still work.

I've gathered a list of threads from our board discussing hsp for newcomers to use.  These will give you an idea about the experience of being hsp.  Scroll down for more links as we continually add many good threads and articles.

http://funhsps.niceboard.org/t1690-the-highly-sensitive-person-a-new-video-interview-with-elain-aron?highlight=highly+sensitive+person

http://funhsps.niceboard.org/t39-what-is-being-hsp
Elain Aron's site, linked in this thread also has a test to see if you are a highly sensitve person.

Oh I forgot to mention that I took a 25 question test to test for HSP. It said I only needed 15. I got 23.

http://funhsps.niceboard.org/t2934-vulnerability-and-connection

This is not strictly about HSP but it applies to us very much so.

This covers HSP as it relates to extroversion, introversion and hss.

Denmark Guy has a blog HSP Notes and writes many insightful articles on HSP.

Here are a couple:

This is not strictly an HSP issue, but it seems to affect HSP more profoundly. http://funhsps.niceboard.org/t3659-reframing-how-we-see-our-beginnings#55028

OK, this just arrived in my email....a controversial article by Denmarkguy: http://denmarkguy.hubpages.com/hub/Highly-Sensitive-or-Touchy that match my observations of some in the HSP community.

This one is terrific: http://funhsps.niceboard.org/t3661-the-perils-of-helping#55046

Two new entries by Denmarkguy today:

http://funhsps.niceboard.org/t3813-hsp-and-the-power-of-language This one is deep and thought provoking.

http://funhsps.niceboard.org/t3814-dealing-with-adhd-as-an-hsp This talks of the experience of ADHD as an HSP.
