And speaking of resources, let’s list some of hers.
HSP Resources by Jenn Granneman
1. Sensitive: A Book for the Highly Sensitive Person
Jenn Granneman is the co-author of Sensitive: The Hidden Power of the Highly Sensitive Person in a Loud, Fast, Too-Much World. The book was released in February 2023 in partnership with Andre Sólo – her life partner and co-author.
Through this book, Jenn and Andre want to show sensitive people how to stop hiding their sensitivity by finding a way to leverage the HSP trait in every part of life. And they demonstrate how to do this through research and storytelling.
So if you would like to learn how to use your sensitivity in your relationships, friendships, parenting, leadership and workplace, this book is for you. It will give you the tools and insight you need to thrive in this loud, fast, and too-much world.
2. Highly Sensitive Refuge: HSP Blog & Community
As we’ve already mentioned, Jenn is the co-founder of Highly Sensitive Refuge alongside Andre Sólo.
Highly Sensitive Refuge aims to prove that high sensitivity can be strong. That it’s okay to be a highly sensitive person, and the world could use a lot more of what HSPs have to offer.
This HSP Blog invites other HSPs to contribute and has tons of articles written by different authors, on different topics for your consumption.
And as if that wasn’t enough, Highly Sensitive Refuge has a Facebook Community where fellow HSPs can meet, learn, and interact. Go here to learn more about the group.
3. The Secret Lives of Introverts: Book for Introverted HSPs
According to Dr. Elaine N. Aron, pioneer of the High Sensitivity trait, 70% of HSPs are introverts, while only 30% are extroverts. So if you’re an introverted HSP, Jenn Granneman’s book, The Secret Lives of Introverts: Inside Our Quiet World will prove to be a great resource.
The book is a guide and manifesto for all introverts and the people who love them. It explores the secret inner world of introverts on matters pertaining to dating, relationships, work, careers, and more. It reveals the clockwork behind the introvert’s mind and why many people may initially get it wrong.
So whether you’re an introvert or an extrovert needing to learn what makes introverts tick, or a curious bystander, this book will teach you at least 7 things about introverts.
Pick up the book on Amazon.
4. Introvert, Dear: Introverts Blog & Community
What Jenn Granneman and her co-founder Andre Sólo are doing on Highly Sensitive Refuge has been replicated on their other blog, Introvert, Dear. Though it’s actually the other way around, as Introvert, Dear was founded before Highly Sensitive Refuge.
But with the details aside, these two blogs could be twins. The layout is similar. The approach to content is similar, with lots of authors invited to guest post. And the only difference is the main topic.
With Introvert, Dear, blog posts are written for an audience of pure introverts. It doesn’t matter if you’re highly sensitive, lowly sensitive, or fall somewhere in the middle. As long as you identify as an introvert, this blog by Jenn has a ton of resources for you.
And as with Highly Sensitive Refuge, this blog comes with a Facebook community too. Go here to learn more about the group and join in.
