HSP Thinking


Hi – I’ve recently learned about the genetic trait of high sensitivity (Sensory Processing Sensitivity). I score very high on psychologist and Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) expert Elaine Aron’s test, and many of the recommendations for HSPs is to create a lot of space for downtime in your life and to reduce stress and stimulation. I’m trying to reconcile that with Brooke’s teachings while also understanding that having an HSP brain is actually a physical difference (your brain is basically taking in 100x more stimulation than non HSP brains.)
