Thanks to George Kao for introducing me to the concept of a Highly Sensitive Person, or HSP. I’d never heard of the idea before today. I see aspects of this frame of being showing up in lots of individuals and in lots of different contexts — including ones in which I find myself.
There is great beauty in being able to genuinely feel the world. To dismiss this mode of experience as simply that of a ‘fragile snowflake’ is to misunderstand the nature of life.

Chances are good that you either live with one, work with one, are friends with one, or are yourself a Highly Sensitive Person…
I found this TEDx talk to be a helpful introduction to what an #HSP is. I think I might be on the spectrum ✨
As #AI and #Robotization continues to take over society, maybe the HSP will become one of our key human evolutionary advantages…
