Highly Sensitive People (HSPs) experience their emotions more deeply and intensely than non-HSPs and they process them for longer. They have high levels of empathy, are deeply compassionate, very intuitive and can pick up on subtleties that others are not aware of.

(For example, crowds, too much noise, bright lights and overpowering smells.) And if there is too much stimuli, their sensory nervous system can go into a state of overarousal and they can start to feel overwhelmed and frazzled.
