HSP or HSS? | INFJ Forum

How many of you are? I'm in a Facebook group about HSPs and it seems that INFJ is by far the most common personality amongst HSPs.

HSP students work differently from others. They pick up on the subtle things, learning better this way than when overaroused. If an HSP student is not contributing much to a discussion, it does not necessarily mean they do not understand or are too shy. HSPs often process things better in their heads or they may be over-aroused. This can be the reason for their not contributing. HSPs are usually very conscientious but underperform when being watched. This also applies to work situations; HSPs can be great employees – good with details, thoughtful and loyal, but they do tend to work best when conditions are quiet and calm. Because HSPs perform less well when being watched, they may be overlooked for a promotion. HSPs tend to socialize less with others, often preferring to process experiences quietly by themselves.

There's also a book out about this. http://www.amazon.com/dp/0553062182/?tag=infjs-20
Actually makes a ton of sense.
I know I have read about this somewhere before... but I can not remember.

At any rate, It is me 100%
Yeah I tend to process things intuitively at first in an amorphous, unexplainable whoosh of knowing, then reexamined as thoroughly as possible to compensate for 'lazy proofs' when I am surrounded by enough tranquility to concentrate.

At least with me, I am both really good, and really horrific with details. It depends on what it is, and what I am supposed to do.
