  1. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Many ENFPs would be considered highly sensitive people or HSPs. I had HSP coach and fellow HSP man Patrick Kleven on the channel to discuss the areas of life that impact sensitive/"feeling type" men.

  2. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers

  6. Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    So I've recently learned about HSPs/"Highly Sensitive Person"s and first of all I definitely think there needs to be more awareness of it as it's a HUGE factor in not just the personality but also the lives of many people, so that's the secondary purpose of this thread. There have probably been...
  7. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Hello! I'm on a bit of a quest to figure out if there are any other Highly Sensitive INTP's on here. I currently have my profile as INTP, although my T is only slightly higher than my F. A year ago I read The Highly Sensitive Person, and it made a vast difference in my life. I am very...

  11. ISFJ Forum - The Nurturers
    Hey, a few months ago I discovered some articles on research about HSPs (highly sensitive people, not hereditary spastic paraplegia!) Turns out we're actually more than a little bit different than normal people and I found it very helpful to know what exactly was going on. I want to know if...
  12. Intro
    Hi, my name's Chris and I've finally come to the conclusion that I am an INFP. What originally drew me to these forums was an article I found on something I had never heard of before, the highly sensitive person or HSP. While reading the article all I could think was that's soooooo me and...
  13. Myers Briggs Forum
    I have a couple of related questions or speculations concerning the 5 senses and Personality Types. First I've noticed that some people I know seem to have one particular sense that is very highly developed - one that they are constantly noticing things through and making comments about...
