    Default Highly Sensitive People

    Self Test

    Akra and I have been discussing it over pm. I assumed it was related to , and she assumed it was related to IEI. Is it type related?

    Sounds a lot like to me too. (Toss in a little "generalized anxiety," and I'd think that about covers it.)

    Fits my ISFp mom to a T.

    Me? -- Five out of 27, or something.

    I scored 11.

    Sensitivity is connected with the Carefree-Farsighted dichotomy. Carefree (EN + IS) types are more sensitive than Farsighted (ES + IN) types.

    IEIs are Farsighted, though...

    Looking the test over, it's too subjective for me to take it myself, but it seems to describe SEI better than any other type.

    There is a difference between (IEI+ILI+EII+LII+SLE+SEE+LSE+ESE) vs (SEI+SLI+ESI+LSI+ILE+IEE+LIE+EIE) and (IEI) vs (ILI+EII+LII+SLE+SEE+LSE+ESE+SEI+SLI+ESI+LSI+ILE+I EE+LIE+EIE).

    Yes. You're saying your rule has an exception, that being the entire IEI type?

    IEI>(SEI+SLI+ESI+LSI+ILE+IEE+LIE+EIE)>(ILI+EII+LII +SLE+SEE+LSE+ESE) does not satisfy (SEI+SLI+ESI+LSI+ILE+IEE+LIE+EIE)>(IEI+ILI+EII+LII +SLE+SEE+LSE+ESE).

    I scored 19... I feel overstimulated easily and I've never been able to withstand loud noise for very long without getting rather irritated. I also avoid environments like that, which probably just makes it worse. I'm sure I could sort of adjust if I tried.

    I'm not exactly sure what's meant by "overwhelmed" seems vague, I guess I don't get overwhelmed then. But there are strong smells that I hate, so maybe I would get 7 or 8, if I included those as being overwhelmed.

    I scored 14. I think HSPs would tend to be introverts in the colloquial sense of the word, but I'm reluctant to draw any more parallels. It seems to have more to do with physiology than information processing.

    Has anyone else looked at the other parts of the site? Apparently 15-20% of people are HSPs - so about 1/7 - 1/5 of the population.

    it's not Si.

    I scored 2.

    I think most of the statements are representative of a specific function:

    I am easily overwhelmed by strong sensory input. Strong Si, although "overwhelmed" might suggest weak but valued Si (since I doubt a Si PoLR would even recognise this kind of input)
    I seem to be aware of subtleties in my environment. Strong Se?
    Other people's moods affect me. Fe valuing
    I tend to be very sensitive to pain. Strong Si/Se
    I find myself needing to withdraw during busy days,into bed or into a darkened room or any place where I can have some privacy and relief from stimulation. Not related to any specific IM element, although maybe INXxs would suffer from this
    I am particularly sensitive to the effects of caffeine. Unrelated
    I am easily overwhelmed by things like bright lights, strong smells,coarse fabrics,or sirens close by. Strong Si/Se?
    I have a rich,complex inner life. Ni
    I am made uncomfortable by loud noises. Unrelated
    I am deeply moved by the arts or music. Fe (although could be Fi if a personal connection is evident)
    My nervous system sometimes feels so frazzled that I just have to go off by myself. Unrelated, although again probably INXxs are more prone
    I am conscientious. Unrelated
    I startle easily. Unrelated
    I get rattled when I have a lot to do in a short amount of time. Ni-aware/valuing types
    When people are uncomfortable in a physical environment I tend to know what needs to be done to make it more comfortable (like changing the lighting or the seating). Si
    I am annoyed when people try to get me to do too many things at once. Unrelated
    I try hard to avoid making mistakes or forgetting things. Unrelated
    I make a point to avoid violent movies and TV shows. Unrelated, although perhaps Ne/Si valuing
    I become unpleasantly aroused when a lot is going on around me. Introverts
    Being very hungry creates a strong reaction in me,disrupting my concentration or mood. Si
    Changes in my life shake me up. EP
    I notice and enjoy delicate or fine scents, tastes, sounds, works of art. Si
    I find it unpleasant to have a lot going on at once. Unrelated?
    I make it a high priority to arrange my life to avoid upsetting or overwhelming situations. Unrelated
    I am bothered by intense stimuli, like loud noises or chaotic scenes. Si
    When I must compete or be observed while performing a task, I become so nervous or shaky that I do much worse than I would otherwise. Unrelated
    When I was a child, my parents or teachers seemed to see me as sensitive or shy. Unrelated
    Ideas don't determine who's right. Power determines who's right. And I have the power. So I'm right.

    I have to agree, I'd think the EP types are the most adaptable.

    Introverts typically are the ones who can't cope with change, I thought.

    IJs especially, since IPs don't mind so much being galvanized by an EP jolt.

    Other than that, I don't like external stuff screwing with my comfortable normalcy.

    Actually, I think it's the EJs that have the most trouble with change. Especially ESxj.

    half of ezras list is wrong. it takes the right IM element, then attaches a wrong meaning to that element. Pathetic display of 'intelligence'

    Shit, I read it as "I need changes to shake my life up".

    Yeah of course - it would most likely be an IJ thing.

    Yes. The absence of leads to a problem with change.
