Have you ever felt like the term “introvert” didn’t fully describe you? Are there aspects of your personality that don't fall under the “introversion” umbrella? Today we’re talking about what it means to be a highly sensitive person (HSP).
Introverts and HSPs share many common characteristics, but there are some important differences — which might help explain some of the things you experience.
Our guest today is Andre Sólo. Andre is an author, philosopher and, at times, an adventurer. His most recent book is Lúnasa Days, a tale of magical realism set at the end of the age of American prosperity. He’s also a passionate advocate for introverts and highly sensitive people. Along with Jenn, his life partner, he co-founded a new community for highly sensitive people called HighlySensitiveRefuge.com.
