HSP IS ?
A High Sensitive Person abbreviated "HSP" is more sensitive to impressions and stimuli from the outside world than average. The HSP is finely sensitive, among other things, for moods, body language of others, for light, sounds and smells. Because the HSP quickly becomes over-stimulated, it likes to withdraw itself.

HSP people and children are creative, caring, compassionate, concentrated, hard working from feeling with good intentions, overseeing mistakes, quickly insightful and try to make sincere decisions with these intentions. Notes small differences in nuance quickly in all kinds of observations, such as colors, smells, atmosphere or situations and materials. From the heart and feeling one makes decisions and people often think about the deeper meaning of life. It is the processing of situations and emotions on a deeper level. There is also a strong connection with people, animals and nature that gives peace to the HSP
Impressions and stimuli are constant and we continuously and often unconsciously record them through our senses in different ways.
There are two variants: intrinsic feelings and thoughts and extrinsic tastes, smells, sounds, movements, colors, shapes, spheres, and the like.
Highly sensitive individuals and children need more time to process these impressions and stimuli than less sensitive people. It is necessary that the HSP recognizes the overstimulation to not go beyond its limit to prevent irritation or anger. It helps to retreat to process the impressions and stimuli and to come to oneself.
The American psychologist Elaine Aron introduced the Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) in 1986, or a High Sensitive Person. Congenital sensitivity was previously observed by Jung as a personality trait in 1913. Aron has reintroduced the concept with the message that high sensitivity not only has adverse effects, but above all positive effects. A while later the first article about high sensitivity appeared in the Netherlands.
Various books by Elaine Aron and other authors on this subject have since been published. Giving a real definition about high sensitivity remains difficult because the meaning is different for every highly sensitive person. A short description is that a High Sensitive Person is an individual who is sensitive to impressions and perceives subtler nuances than average. This applies to both negative and positive factors from the environment.
