Sensing types have a sensitivity to inner stimulation. By sensitivity, we mean a heightened response to these activities. A sensing type will more quickly feel “filled up” if they must use their imagination and their own head to process information. An intuitive type on the other hand, will have a heightened response to sounds, visuals, and touch, compared to the sensing type.
This heightened response is what drives some people to favor intuition: because when your sensory glass is filled up, you begin to tune out and filter outer information. For the sensing type, the situation is the reverse, when the mind is filled up, sensations are the way to calm down and refresh the mind. Generally, while an intuitive can find sensory stimuli thrilling, fascinating, and stimulating, eventually, the energy begins to overwhelm the intuitive type. And while the sensing type can enjoy speculation, after a while, it begins to overwhelm the sensing type. Our test differs from normal HSP tests in that it also factors in extroversion and introversion, creating two distinct HSP types: The sensation / seeking type (ESXX), the sensitive / seeking type (ENXX), the sensitive / cautious type (INXX), and the sensation / cautious (ISXX) types.
