Working with highly sensitive people

A Highly Sensitive Person (HSP)

A HSP is a neurodivergent individual who is thought to have an increased or deeper central nervous system sensitivity to physical, emotional, or social stimuli, some refer to this as having sensory processing sensitivity (SPS).

Elaine Aron published her book The Highly Sensitive Person in 1996 and her study found that around a fifth of the population could be described in this way. So, there are many people who could be an HSP. Someone who is an HSP could avoid violent movies or TV, have a rich inner life, be deeply moved by beauty, be overwhelmed by sensory stimuli, feel the need for downtime.
