Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) and Sensory-Processing Sensitivity (SPS ; scientific term for HSP) conceptualized by Aron & Aron (1997) as involving high levels of sensitivity to subtle stimuli and being easily over-aroused by stimuli. Funahashi (2012) developed a scale utilizing numerous Japanese college students samples to assess SPS traits. Since the initial development of the Japanese translation version of HSP scale (Takahashi, 2015), several issues still remain. Although SPS is an innate trait which is found 15 to 20 % of the population, there have only been a few studies conducted in Japan. This session introduces the concept of this trait and scales developed for Japanese.
