RE: How do you explain the trait of being an HSP to others?
Somehow it seems, some will never understand it, some can have a glimpse, and others seem to understand it – mostly connected to their level of empathy.
How do you explain, if you explain at all?
Showing them articles in well-known magazines like GQ and Vogue can also help, besides the scientific articles you can easily find via Google in order to give some explanations and authority sources. The more accepted the source is for the conversation partner (science, fancy, gossip, celebrities, newspaper, …), the more they will accept the facts about HSPs. Articles from esoteric, or “HSP niche” blogs work not so well, as they can seem biased or following an agenda, or wanting to sell an HSP book, course, DVD/movie/stream, etc.
