    NF and HSP Poll

    Hi there, NFs!
    I'm just wondering, via this quick 'n dirty poll, how many of us are Highly Sensitive Persons or not.

    Please do not answer the poll if you are not an NF, but I still welcome you to the discussion.

    Here is the link to a fast, free, anonymous test if you don't know about your standing:

    I already know I am, let's see if we could keep a straight record, who knows, we might all be HSP. Kind of fits with the statistics.

    When did you first discover you were highly sensitive? I just learned of the term last year, but my parents knew this all along, ever since I looked uncomfortable by the prickliness of grass as a toddler.

    I got a 25.

    I recently got noise cancelling headphones. They are amazing for busy or loud places.

    I wonder if we will keep a straight record!

    I learned about it maybe a year ago, but it didn't sink in until a few months ago when I started my career and my most serious romantic relationships. I knew I was a sensitive person and a little bit different, but I've always tried to push it away or power through (except when it's a benefit) because I thought that's what everybody else was doing. I thought it was all in my head. I'm sure it would have helped me feel better about myself if I'd known that being HSP was a thing and that I'm not actually a wimp!

    I'd say I first realized I was somewhat different when I was a preteen. I would laugh so hard at things, and my friends would laugh at/with me. I figured out that almost no one I knew laughed as hard as I did. I began to think that no one could have as much fun as I could.

    It's true, isn't it? We experience the range of feelings on a different level. I think it helps make our choice of a profession easier, since we're much more inclined to work on something that makes us feel good. Anyhow, I still need to see a woman being called a wimp, powering through basically became my go to move since nobody likes a "weak" guy, showing emotions = weak in today's society, or at least not the "right" emotions.

    Yep! When I found out about HSPs it was such a relief, things started to make so much more sense. One little thing that really stood to me was hating the feeling of coarse fabrics, I'm really particular about what pyjamas and dressing gowns I'll wear and people give me weird looks for how much I hate wearing some fabrics. That gave me a giggle. Don't even get me started on sirens. But yeah, in general, 100%.

    I am. I found out last year from a similar thread. But my reaction is like "Oh gosh NO! Not one more label!" not that I have other labels other than ENFP, but I really don't like things that would mean I need to be careful or restrict or do extra planning or anything that I would tell someone else that might sound like an excuse. Who cares if I'm crying while I try to get through something? (Actually I've found people's reaction to tears are often quite polarized. Some with pretty strong reactions. But if I can mention I'm HSP and it helps people understand me better then so be it. I don't think I'm very kind to myself, but I was kind of taught life can be tough and to try to be tougher. I know so many people who are so so tough, hardship just rolls of their backs like water off of a duck. I admire people who can help others. I don't see why life should be any easier for me when they've got it tough and I'm not about to back down from shouldering responsibility just because I've got tons of emotions.
    I'm a 18. My INFP husband is a 20, my INTP daughter is a 24 and I didn't have my son take it--- but I figure we just create HSPs who go at life the same way I do... and so "sigh" I guess I need to teach us all how to do self-care, including me.

    My daughter has Sensory Processing Disorder, so do I but not as strong. The seams in socks used to feel like knifes though. Shirt tags? Yeah... and my daughter has it worse. If she's over-stimulated I can hardly touch her arm. Something to look into. She has tactile and visual sensory processing disorder (it used to be called sensory defensiveness) and some people have oral, smell, there's a bunch of different kinds. Yeah, just something to be aware of and I do think it gives her a higher HSP score.
