I laughed when I saw that - Highly Sensitive Person. I mean, come on. How ridiculous is that? But I guess it's no different that "type A". People just are who they are... why classify like that? Just my thoughts.... I have real issues with labeling, not only mental illness but really just everything - gay, straight, bi, vegetarian, Christian.... I prefer to say "I don't eat meat" instead of "I am a vegetarian". It's the same with feelings (I learned this in DBT). Instead of saying "I am sad" which is sort of like a label meaning I = sad, they said that it's better to say "I feel sad" which makes it more of a temporary thing that just happens to be. I don't know if this really makes sense, I'm kind of going off....
