Yes! I'm in my early 20s, but I have been easily scared by loud noises as long as I can remember. When I was little, I hated going to fireworks shows with my parents. I jump at the sound of loud music, or barking dogs (I have a phobia concerning that, too), or a TV commerical. At work, my cube faces in, so I can't see who walks by. I often jump when someone comes to speak me, and I don't hear them coming. So startled in fact that someone gave me a "monitor mirror" to put on my computer so I can see people coming.
I also get easily annoyed in shopping malls. So loud I can't think. I hate when people talk loudly (especially if the person is right in front of them). Makes my skin crawl too. Always has.
