Have you ever heard of the term ’empath’? This word is used to describe the people on this planet who a bit more in tune with their senses than the average person.
These are the people who simply feel more. So much so, that they’re capable of literally feeling whatever emotion another person is feeling. They share an intimate connection with the world and people around them.
As you can imagine, having a strong empathic ability is both a blessing and a curse.
Because empaths are capable of absorbing the energies and emotions that fill the spaces around them, they can unknowingly absorb the negative energies of others if they do not know how to protect themselves.
For this reason, empaths tend to be shy and somewhat introverted. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t be empathic if you’re not introverted.
The truth is that we’re all capable of empathy to some extent. It’s a spectrum and we all fall in different parts of it.
You can find out where exactly you fall on the empathy spectrum by taking this fun, insightful quiz! With each answer you give, the quiz determines what type of empathy your personality most strongly relates to. Be honest in your answers!
Please share with friends and loved ones who would love to find out what kind of empathy they exhibit!
