Are you a highly sensitive person – HSP?


HSP stands for a highly sensitive person and has been described as having hypersensitivity to the external stimuli, greater depth of cognitive processing which is usually accompanied by emotional reactivity.
People that are highly sensitive experience the world differently than others. Highly emotional people are usually much more aware, empathetic and very creative.

Signs that you are an HSP person:

  • Do you think deeply?
  • Are you feeling emotionally exhausted from absorbing other people’s emotions?
  • You cannot stand for violence or cruelty
  • You withdraw often from crowds
  • Your inner world is very rich and full of life
  • You are a highly conscientious person
  • Its difficult for you to cope with change
  • You find it difficult to deal with pressure
  • You read people’s body language easily

Remember your traits are definitely normal and HSP is not a disorder. It’s just that you are more aware than others and this is due to your brain processes.
At times you might feel misunderstood or overwhelmed by the people around you and that is okay.

Learning to be assertive can definitely help to express yourself.

How to have a successful relationship with an HSP person:

  • Always tell the truth and don’t hold your emotions back as they will pick up on them regardless.
  • Try not to hide things from them or play games. Be truthful and transparent;
  • Expect a lot of passion;
  • Show plenty of affection;
  • Do creative things together:
  • Allow them to have their alone time.
  • Learn to respect their sensitivity and see it as a gift.
