Why Absolutely Nothing is Wrong With Your Highly Sensitive Personality

  • Hear, see, and usually feel things others miss or before they even occur
  • Big-picture thinkers and process-based in their constructing of pretty much anything
  • Processing very deeply (yes, sometimes to their detriment), and as a result, they can see a train-wreck coming long before most people. It can take a very long time to release one hurtful word said to them. Even if they don’t want to hold onto it, their nervous system will.
  • Sensitive to light (have to wear sunglasses often or anytime they go out, even if it’s cloudy)
  • Sensitive to smells in a heightened way, beyond what others might be (smell things others don’t smell or it takes them longer to pick up on)
  • Sensitive to patterns — political, entrepreneurial, social, psychological, etc. They pick up on patterns everywhere — people’s behavior, decisions made by leadership, and patterns of success.
  • Extremely empathic or capable of empathy (literally putting themselves in the place of another to the point of feeling what they feel is a gift they have)
  • Sensitive to certain fabrics — really hate some and really love others (typically softer fabrics that are comfortable to the touch appeal to their skin more)
