RE: A personality test
18 Yes, 9 No here.

I find this theory familiar, I've been over this. HSP may be simply a vague word for traits very common on autistic spectrum. These may be influenced by Neanderthal genes, plentiful in white people. (about 4 % of the genome, IIRC) Both atheistic and theistic internet forums are likely to be almost completely white.
Neanderthals lived in smaller groups, so being on lookout was more important than being social. They had big eyes, probably semi-nocturnal. Probably didn't wear fabric clothes, only skins. (I find very fine and smooth fabrics extremely unpleasant) Of course, we are just much later hybrids, so we get just odd traits here and there as a lottery.

HSP are strong introverts, introversion is a neurological trait which results in very different brain chemical levels and processing patterns. An introverted brain takes in everything and mulls it over a lot, before passing it on to speech centers. Introverted brain chemistry has already high levels of some chemicals, so increasing them even more is unpleasant.
