DEFINITION of HIGHLY SENSITIVE PERSON: Sensory processing sensitivity (SPS) is a personality trait characterized by a high level of sensitivity to external stimuli. The trait tends to correlate with a greater depth of cognitive processing and high emotional reactivity. A human with a particularly high measure of SPS is considered to be a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP). These definitions were coined in the mid-1990s by psychologists Elaine Aron and husband Arthur Aron.
