When you start researching into a Highly Sensitive Person the amount written about this topic is bottomless. This fact actually amazed me, as living in the UK I had never heard about this trait and I am quite sure there are a number of other people haven’t either. Being so sensitive can be very painful and we are so in awe about everything, we make our lives hard. Because of this I have collected together lots of articles which I hope will help you work out what is means to be sensitive so discover yourself and understand why you feel as you do. Then you may be able to work out what you can do about .
One thing I have noticed that there are apparently certain levels of sensitivity all which have been given labels . The two that come to the fore front is Empath and Introvert. Here are links to finding out both. These will lead you to more.
Hypersensitivity is so in depth that some people think of it as a disorder. Because of this I am sharing with you some articles from knowledgeable people which will help you assess yourself, gaining understanding.
I am finishing off this introduction into being a Highly Sensitive Person with an introduction to Elaine Aron, American Psychologist who by one book brought knowledge of being a Highly Sensitive Person to the world.

Jung Institute in San Francisco.
