What is an HSP?
You may be wondering if you’re a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP). Dr. Elaine Aron identified 4 primary categories that encompass being an HSP. The acronym is DOES. They stand for Depth of Processing, Overstimulation/Overarousability, Empathy/Emotional Responsiveness and Sensitive to Subtleties.
Does This Sound Like You?
If you’re still not sure you’re an HSP, this video asks more specific questions, and I talk about a number of the nuances that HSPs experience. I have spoken with many HSPs, and I always love to ask about their experiences being an HSP (the negative messages as well as their strengths). I used their feedback as well as my own experiences when compiling the information for this video. Some of the questions asked are about perfectionism, overthinking, being told you’re too serious; having a hard time making decisions, and being told you’re too picky.
