In the workplace, the characteristics of the trait can show up as both beneficial and challenging–not only for the HSP, but for their managers and coworkers, too. Managing and working with Highly Sensitive People well is a worthy goal.
Highly Sensitive Entrepreneur
There’s lots of discussion in the highly sensitive community about the best jobs for Highly Sensitive People. It seems we’ve earned the self-imposed reputation for cultivating careers that work best for our need for quiet, self-directed, focused work. I’ve been a highly sensitive entrepreneur for 20 years (even though I didn’t know about the HSP trait until a handful of years ago). Right out of college, I had experience cubicle life working in high-tech public relations. I knew that I would eventually go into business for myself.
