One might be tempted to assume that all Highly Sensitive People are introverts. In fact, only 70% of HSPs are of this personality type. Years ago, Clare took a test to find out where she was on the continuum and was found to be in the middle, with a small shift towards extroversion. For years she has confidently referred to herself as an ambivert. She figured the remaining 30%, non-introvert HSPs would be split between extroverts and ambiverts. 


Today, Jenn threw that whole revelation out of the window and suggests Clare must stand fully in her extroversion.
