*Although, of course, not all Highly Sensitive people have the the Myers-Brigg classification “INFJ”  and not all are introverts, they do frequently cross the same territory and so I have included them together in this list. In my experience, combining good familiarity with your Myers-Brigg  personality type with a good grasp of your particular Highly Sensitive traits can be a very powerful combination for deeper self-understanding.
