Interesting article:

Why So Many Artists Are Highly Sensitive People by Caroline Gregoire
Psychologists have found that the creative personality contains layers of depth, complexity and contradictions.
 Additional material from the article:
Grimes’s findings suggest that behind the external appearance of any highly creative person are layers of depth, complexity, and contradictions.

Not only performers but creative people of all types tend to be acutely sensitive, and conversely, sensitive people are often quite creative.

.... It’s easy to see how one trait feeds into the other: To both the highly creative and the highly sensitive mind, there’s simply more to observe, take in, feel, and process from their environment.

.... Are you an HSP?

Research led by psychologist Elaine Aron has identified sensitivity as a fundamental dimension of human personality, finding that highly sensitive people tend to process more sensory input and to pick up on more of what’s going on in both their internal and external environment.

An estimated 15 to 20 percent of people are considered to be, in Aron’s terms, highly sensitive, but among artists and creative thinkers, that percentage is likely much higher.

.... The Arons put up advertisements looking for people who were “introverted” or easily overwhelmed by things like noisy places or evocative or shocking entertainment, selecting an equal number of men and women across a wide range of ages and occupations.

.... Many respondents expressed a connection to the arts and nature as well as an unusual sympathy for the helpless (animals, “victims of injustice”). Many also expressed their spirituality (“seeing God in everything,” going on long meditation retreats) as playing an important role in their lives.

Later, psychologists identified two main factors on the HSP Scale: “temperamental sensitivity” -- relating to one's level of sensitivity to sensory input -- and a “rich inner life.”
