  • 33. Introverts in an Extrovert's Job

    10/03/2015

    When I’ve talked about jobs and careers in the past, I’ve always said that sales, in my opinion, is one of the worst jobs for introverted HSPs.   But a post on Reddit turned my thoughts about sales on their head. What if an introverted HSP was in a typically "extroverted" job, and instead of forcing themselves to be extroverted...they used their innate traits to their advantage?   (Apologies to the extroverted HSPs because this is one of those episodes about introverts, or introverted HSPs.)   If you like the podcast, please leave a positive review on iTunes!   Related Blog Posts: For HSPs, jobs are more than just a paycheck The Best Jobs for HSPs   Resources mentioned in the podcast: A travel experience for introverts via cnet.com Sign up for the weekly HSP newsletter to be notified of the latest blog posts, podcast episodes, and HSP news.  Podcast music attribution: By the Coast (2004) (Antony Raijekov) / CC BY-NC 2.5

  • 32. Compassionate Care

    03/03/2015

    Imagine riding in a car with your friends, and everything goes black. The next thing you know, you are lying somewhere, but you can’t see. You’re in indescribable pain. You can’t speak. You can’t move your head. Then you feel a soft touch on your hand and arm, and a caring voice explains that you were in a car accident. This person squeezes your hand and says, “I’m here.” Those two words make a world of difference. This is the story of Marcus Engel. Marcus has used his experience to write books for healthcare professionals, teaching them how to better communicate and treat their patients compassionately. In this episode, I talk about some of Marcus' tips for compassionate care and why HSPs are well-suited to care professions. If you like the podcast, please leave a positive review on iTunes.

  • 31. Airplane Turbulence

    24/02/2015

    Over the past dozen years or so, I’ve gotten more and more scared of turbulence on airplanes. When I was younger, I enjoyed turbulence. I remember a time when I would snicker when I saw other people who looked nervous! But now, It’s now to the point where I’m barely fighting off a panic attack. In this episode, I talk about why turbulence is scary to some people, plus some tips on how I calm down while on a plane. If you like the podcast, please leave a positive review on iTunes!

  • 30. Politeness

    18/02/2015

    Are you ever sorry about being sorry? Have you apologized to inanimate objects? Because HSPs are observant to social cues and other people’s feelings, we tend to be very polite. And not only do HSPs have good manners, we notice when other people’s don’t.

  • 29. Extroverted HSPs

    04/02/2015

    One glaring topic I have neglected to cover in this podcast and blog is extroverts. Approximately 30% of HSPs are extroverts! (btw, it can also be spelled extravert). In this episode, I share some tidbits I've learned from interviewing extroverted HSPs, including the challenges and differences of being the wonderful way they are.

  • 27. Science!

    20/01/2015

    In today's episode, I talk about the most interesting parts of this great interview of Dr. Elaine Aron on Reset.me. It's about genetic studies and stuff. Ok, ok, that doesn't sound very exciting, does it? Take #2. In today's episode, I talk about why high sensitivity hasn't been bred out of humans (in an evolutionary sense) and that HSPs might be more likely to be thrive (or, conversely, suffer) than non-HSPs, depending on their upbringing.

  • 25. Using high sensitivity as a "crutch"

    06/01/2015

    In this episode 25, I share some quotes from people in relationships with HSPs who are fed up! They say that HSPs are selfish and don't try to improve themselves. This bums me out and I hope that I don't act this way in my own relationship. Do you ever worry that your partner is ignoring their own needs to help you with yours?

  • 24. Tips for Coping with the Challenges of Being Highly Sensitive

    30/12/2014

    In this episode 23, I provide some tips on how to deal with the challenging aspects of being highly sensitive. Do you ever say these things to yourself? "I give a lot to other people but they don’t notice--they don't appreciate or reciprocate my thoughtfulness." "I can’t trust many people because they will inevitably hurt me or let me down." "How can I be less sensitive?" "My empathy weighs heavily on me--It’s so tiring. How can I better handle this?" Have a listen and let me know what you think of my tips in the comments below.

  • 23. Kindred Spirits & Friendship

    16/12/2014

    Pontificating on Friendship "Kindred Spirits" are intimate friends, people with whom you are comfortable being your true self. HSPs are often on the hunt for kindred spirits, especially at parties, gatherings, or networking events. Having a deep, intense, shared connection with someone else is essential to meeting the emotional needs of sensitive people. In this episode 23, I also talk about Anne of Green Gables, Susan Cain (as per usual), and why it's ok to let go of friends you don't truly connect with.

  • 22. Emotional Cutting

    09/12/2014

    Emotional cutting is reading or watching things that hurt us emotionally...but we keeping doing them anyway. I do this when I look at dog rescues on Facebook that show when animals were saved or euthanized. Why do I, and other HSPs, seek out this pain? Even though it hurts, sometimes makes me cry, and can take a long time to recover from, I still do it. Do I, deep down, want the pain?

  • 21. Gift Giving

    03/12/2014

    The holiday season is here and I've been thinking about gift giving. HSPs' temperament makes them well-suited to picking out the perfect gift for loved ones. We pay close attention to details so we are likely to pick up on the wants and desires of others. In this episode, I talk about the most thoughtful gift I ever received and I also go off on a rant about gift cards. If you like the podcast, please leave a positive review on iTunes!

    24/11/2014

    18/11/2014

    The previous episode was about the single best job for HSPs--working for yourself. Today's show is about more traditional jobs and careers, including what you should look for (and avoid as an HSP). What qualities of being highly sensitive are a benefit to certain jobs?

  • 17. Highly "Sensory" People

    04/11/2014

    Episode 17 of the Highly Sensitive Person Podcast is brought to you by the word sensitive. A blog reader, Mike Voss, gave me the great suggestion that maybe the moniker Highly Sensitive Person could be changed to something without the word sensitive, because it's such a loaded word. How about Highly Sensory Person? I like that a lot better. (Actually, the trait's scientific term is Sensory-Processing Sensitivity, or SPS--but I don't hear that used very often!) I discuss how the word sensitive might turn off male HSPs, and even how I denied being HSP at first because I didn't like "sensitive", either. Oh, did I mention it's kind of a rant?

  • 16: High Sensation Seeking

    28/10/2014

    Episode 16 of the Highly Sensitive Person Podcast is about High Sensation Seeking HSPs. You have no idea how many times I had to edit myself saying that mouthful of words incorrectly in this episode. HSPs are careful and evaluate everything around them thoroughly. But those who are also High Sensation Seekers crave excitement, arousal, and new experiences (not necessarily extreme stuff like skydiving or bungee jumping, mind you.) How can those two traits co-exist in the same person?! I think it's an interesting concept. If you like the podcast, please say "thanks" by leaving a positive review on iTunes!

    21/10/2014

    Episode 15 of the Highly Sensitive Person Podcast is about control. It wasn't until I started writing about all my HSP stuff that I realized so many of the things that bothered me were about a lack of control. From working in a cubicle, to a fear of flying, to drop-in tennis, I outline the sneaky ways needing control is in my life. If you like the podcast, please say "thanks" by leaving a review on iTunes!
