A highly Sensitive Person (HSP) is an individual who has over sensitivity in catching stimulus or information from an environment than other people in general. The excessive reception of stimulus could increase central nervous system performance, so when this situation cannot be controlled, the highly sensitive person would feel exhausted and tend to have negative impacts on mental health conditions, for example, depression, stress, and anxiety disorder. Many kinds of literature have asserted that interaction ability was a factor that was expected to minimize the negative impact that appeared. This research was conducted to examine whether social ability could affect stress experienced by a highly sensitive person (HSP). The participants were 103 active students of the State Islamic University of Maulana Malik Ibrahim Malang. The scale of a highly sensitive person (HSP) was used to determine whether the individuals were included in the HSP or non-HSP category. After the subject was obtained with HSP, the researchers exerted PSS-10 to measure stress level, and a social skill scale was used to measure social skill level. Further, Moderated Regression Analysis was used to test the effects of moderating variables (social skill) on stress variables and HSP. The research result referred to the social skill played as a moderating variable between HSP and stress.
