Do you have a keen imagination and vivid dreams? Are you "too emotional" or "too sensitive" according to others? Do noise and confusion sometimes overwhelm you? If your answers are yes, you may be a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP).
Except I don't mind *constructive* criticism and I do not shy from confrontation! << Uwahh, strong one :')) Agreed, constructive criticism's good! I'd rather not get into arguments if possible, tho 😅 And fear of losing someone/something.
EMPATH: yes all of the above but no i am not a touchy feely type of person - i don't like people touching me actually - i am with animals however, but i have been with a narcissist almost my entire married life so i probably don't know for sure…
Can quickly become overwhelmed by too much intensity, chaos and noise. You might often feel the need to withdraw into a darkened room or some other quiet sanctuary where you can find relief from overstimulation. Also reflect more deeply.
