Highly sensitive individuals are very responsive to minor changes in their environment- they pick up things in their environment that other people largely miss or ignore- this imparts due to underlying differences in their genetic makeup.
4 characteristics demonstrated in highly sensitive people are. Depth of processing, overstimulation, strong emotions and empathy, and sensitivity to subtleties. These characteristics from the eyes of non-sensitive individuals are labeled as “afraid, or shy or quiet” when in reality- HSI (highly sensitive individuals) are observing and feeling all of the energy in the environment. Having those labels glued to us when they may not really apply to our experience.
Shyness is the fear of social evaluation. It's often been mixed up with sensitivity because lots of sensitive people can become shy because they’re a minority. Therefore people often treat them a little differently because maybe they’re overstimulated--When they show up at a party and don’t have anything to say.
