You may have noticed that I have been posting quite a bit, both here and on my Facebook Page, about Highly Sensitive People or HSPs. That’s because every person with BPD is an HSP, but not every HSP has BPD. It is believed that BPD is caused by a HSP being brought up in an invalidating environment.
Dr. Elaine Aron has a test on her website to see if you are a HSP. You can take the test here: http://www.hsperson.com/test/ Dr. Aron has researched the trait of High Sensitivity and has even written a book on it called The Highly Sensitive Person. She is currently trying to get funding for a documentary on High Sensitivity called Sensitive.
