Another hunch of mine, however, is that the human race benefits more from HSPs [highly sensitive people] than do other species. HSPs do more of that which makes humans different from other animals: we imagine possibilities. We humans, and HSPs especially, are acutely aware of the past and future. On top of that, if necessity is the mother of invention, HSPs must spend far more time trying to invent solutions to human problems just because they are more sensitive to hunger, cold, insecurity, exhaustion, and illness.
