Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) Personality Test

You have reached 64 of 100 points, (64%)

If your score was 50 points or above, you’re most likely a highly sensitive person.

Found in 15 – 20% of the population, highly sensitive people experience life a little differently from those around them.  While you may find that you’re easily overstimulated by your senses as well as the many intense and chaotic situations in daily life, you also tend to process the world at a very deep level.  This means that you tend to be a very philosophical, spiritual or gentle person, while at the same time appearing to be very highly strung.  Due to your empathic ability to sense the subtle nuances in environments and people, you’re often drawn towards jobs such as counseling, occupational therapy and writing.  Although you get easily overwhelmed by people and the world, you are a thoughtful, sensitive and complex person who has a great advantage in many situations.
