I'm a Highly Sensitive Person, amateur photographer, IT nerd since 1982, have had my own IT-business, used to teach IT, economy and media & design and are deeply interested in psychology and social psychology.
I'm truly emphatic and introvert. I'm also analyzing everything in my goal of understanding. Especially people, their minds and their behaviors since they are the most interesting organic complex systems and I love them for it. That makes me a social nerd.
I'm trying to find myself a new ground in life. There are still so many questions unanswered that I feel that I know so little of. Being a HSP today is a true challenge to both me and my surroundings. Neither part seems to understand the other much.
During my rehab I started to photograph and found a whole new dimension both inside myself and outside in the world. It has, and continues to, help me rebuild my way of focusing as a tool for restraining to much influenses and input that I so easily get.
Being a HSP makes me see a lot more details and also a lot more connections and reasemblences then a standard person does. I also have a brain that not only process indata in one way - i e what I see with the visual cortex, what I hear with the acoustic center and so on - but also sends the input to another center as well. I hear what I see, I feel what I hear, I taste what I feel and so on.
This makes my world a magical place but it can also be a living hell.
