A blog reader, Mike Voss, gave me the great suggestion that maybe the moniker Highly Sensitive Person could be changed to something without the word sensitive, because it’s such a loaded word. How about Highly Sensory Person? I like that better.
Actually, the more technical name for the trait HSPs possess is Sensory Processing Sensitivity, or SPS.
In this show, I discuss how the word sensitive might turn off male HSPs and how I denied being HSP at first because I didn’t like the word “sensitive”, either. Oh, did I mention it’s kind of a rant?
