Being Highly Sensitive is Now a Syndrome

I thought I was just a high-strung prick, looks like now I can be mediated:

Being an HSP means your nervous system is more sensitive to subtleties. Your sight, hearing, and sense of smell are not necessarily keener …. But your brain processes information and reflects on it more deeply. Being an HSP also means, necessarily, that you are more easily overstimulated, stressed out, overwhelmed.


Now I’m all for labeling people (so we know who to cull when the revolution comes), but this is dangerous in a number of ways. 1) It’s making illnesses out of character traits. 2) It’s basing its deviations on average human experience & then its saying that to be outside those averages is abnormal.

Some of this seems like threads of OCD, Apsbergers or general anxiety.
