    This is a good question, John.
    I sometimes struggle to understand what is “more” than other people. Having never been inside anyone’s brain than my own, I guess I don’t know if I can say I’m “more” or even “as” reactive as others.

    Just from observation, I suspect I am more reactive to negative stimuli than others, but mostly in sadness. I rarely feel anger.

    Not sure if I feel that way about positive stimuli, such as art or music.

    I’d be interested to hear how other HSPs identify whether they are more reactive.
