Are You HSP Like Me???

Take the self test here.

A highly sensitive person (HSP) is a person having the innate trait of high psychological sensitivity. According to Elaine N. Aron and other researchers, highly sensitive people, who comprise about a fifth of the population, may process sensory data much more deeply and thoroughly due to a biological difference in their nervous systems.

Pearl S. Buck (1892-1973), recipient of the Pulitzer Prize in 1932 and of the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1938, said the following about Highly Sensitive People:

"The truly creative mind in any field is no more than this:

A human creature born abnormally, inhumanly sensitive.

To him...a touch is a blow,

a sound is a noise,

a misfortune is a tragedy,

a joy is an ecstasy,

a friend is a lover,

a lover is a god,

and failure is death.

Add to this cruelly delicate organism

the overpowering necessity to create, create, create - - -

so that without the creating of music or poetry

or books or buildings or something of meaning,

his very breath is cut off from him.

He must create, must pour out creation.

By some strange, unknown, inward urgency

he is not really alive unless he is creating."

-Pearl S. Buck
