    Default Are You An Empath? 11 Things They Hide From People



    Empaths are very special people and they are unique from everyone else in a variety of different ways. Although they don’t talk about it much, they are highly sensitive people. If you are close to an empath you need to know these things. If you are an empath you can protect your strength and energy by knowing these traits.

    Empaths are unique in a lot of different ways. They are extremely sensitive to human energy and emotions. They tend to absorb other people’s emotions and energy, and that can be a very negative thing – if they’re around negative people. Although it may be uncommon for an empath to even share their gift with others. If you have an empathic loved one you have to be a little cautious. Empaths will always be there for you when you need someone, even if you don’t ask for it. They are able to automatically sense when something is wrong because they can literally feel it. However they are excellent at being there for their friends, they often struggle with tending to their own health. They aren’t as likely to talk about their own feelings even though they consistently ask you about yours.

    If you have a loved one that is an empath you have to be extra attentive to their behavior. You have to pay attention because it is likely that they won’t come to you for help with their problems. They’re actually very good at hiding it. In fact, every empath has the following traits and they tend to try and hide them from you.

    Source

    Empaths Will Always Try To Hide These Traits From You

    1. Their Sensitivity

    An empath is a natural born healer and they feel as if they have to look strong for the people around them. Empaths hate being an inconvenience on other people in any possible way, thus they hide their emotions. They most of all hide that they are extremely hypersensitive.

    2. They Absorb Others Emotions

    You might not notice it, but when you are having a down day they are too. This is because they absorb the emotions of other people and they can literally feel other people’s pain to some degree. However, you’ll scarcely hear an empath talk about this. They don’t want to appear crazy, as modern day society would label them as.

    3. They’re Introverted

    Empaths really value alone time. They are so sensitive to the energies of other people that the only calm state they can get is when they are alone. They don’t want to appear rude so they are commonly extroverted introverts, or an introvert that partakes in extrovert activities.

    4. They Become Replenished in Nature

    If you think that you have a friend that is an empath, you might take note that they love to be outside. They often take any chance they can get to go on some kind of nature walk. They do this because nature replenishes them of positive energy!

    5. They’re Human Lie Detectors

    An empath has many different abilities when it comes to reading other people. They can easily see through a mask, revealing someone’s true intentions. They are excellent at detecting a lie. If they catch you in a lie they might not even say anything about it. They’ll just always remember it.

    6. They Give Too Much Sometimes

    Like I said before, empaths are natural born healers. They have a natural urge to help other people. They very easily put themselves aside too much and this can cause a lot of emotional trauma for them. If they ignore their own feelings for too long they will all build up an overflow eventually. Watch out for them to be doing a little too much for other people. You might want to warn them of it.

    7. They Seem To Be Targets For Negative People

    Empaths do not tend to talk about themselves, but they are well aware of the fact that they are big red targets for negative people. Negative people such as manipulators are attracted to empaths because they are so forgiving and understanding. They absorb all of your positivity and replace it with negativity. They are always terrified of the next person who plans to make a target out of them.

    8. They’re Highly Intuitive

    Empaths are in tune with their intuitive connectedness, and they are able to make very important decisions based on just their gut. They know how to tune in and really feel what the universe is trying to tell them. They pick up on more things than you’d think.

    9. They’re Easily Stressed

    Empaths tend to feel common emotions intensified and they are very easily overwhelmed and stressed. If they are trying to tackle too many tasks at one time it can be extremely overwhelming to them. It might even take a toll on their health.

    10. They’re Easily Taken Advantage of

    Not trying to imply that empaths are weak because they are very strong. However, they are extremely understanding and have an extreme value of any human soul. They can see the sunshine in any kind of storm. This makes them easily taken advantage of by strong manipulators because they know just the right strings to pull.

    11. They Love Deeply

    Empaths are extremely loving people. They care about their loved ones and society as a whole with a true passion. When an empath loves they tend to love very deeply. They have a deeply rooted appreciation for all of the people in their lives. they are the most loyal lovers and are some of the best friends you could ever ask for!

    Bless you for this post rgray222 !

    My wife swears I'm clairvoyant, but I've always held the belief that I'm empathic. For me this post is spot-on!

    I left her on the couch to come into the backyard and write this so she doesn't see me crying. She'll be concerned something's wrong when all it is was a discovery of something I've known and felt for a very long time.

    I was just telling Wind how lucky I was to be able to walk out of my front door everyday then walk in nature for as many miles as I can which is usually 6 to 15 miles a day.



    We seem to be targets for those with cluster B personality disorders.

    Many blessings all

    Agreed about having an OP about a subject that a large percentage of people would say they have this ability yet we never really discuss it to gain a better understanding probably because its in the paranormal field. What do suppose the number of forum members would say if they have this or not?

    PS: number 12: Some of them dont tell others...

    This is very familiar to me, I have taken the Myers/Briggs personality test many times and it reveals that I am an INFJ type. I can't say that I absolutely accept the findings of this type of 'navel gazing', it can become something of an indulgence; however I believe it offers us some valuable clues as to why people vary so much out there!

    We are each unique blends, and mixtures of traits - it also depends on what parts of yourself you choose to develop and refine.

    Another INFP-A here.

    I was rather surprised about the A as I don't consider myself assertive, but on reflection I think it is more to do with not taking 'crap' and standing for truth. Something else I find interesting is the ease with which I can slip into the extrovert role when the opportunity arises naturally in a social setting, whereas if I have to be extroverted, eg public speaking, I'm a bag of nerves leaking sweat.

    Quote about identity, i.e. assertive: underpins all others, how confident we are in our abilities and decisions.

    They’ve replaced the test from three years ago, and a new category was added. I was an INFJ, and now I’m an INFJ-A. (Identity = 64% assertive)

    One interesting note for me is that the percentages have changed significantly in 3 out of the 4 areas. I attribute it to an upgrade in skills, perceptions and approach to life in general.

    I received an ENFJ-A ... Thought I was more introverted, but we don't always see ourselves as others do ...

    Looking further I found this: Extraverted – 64%, Intuitive – 73%, Feeling – 86%, Judging – 63%, Assertive – 60%
    Role: Diplomat
    Strategy: People Mastery

    Great Post!

    So basically, the more 3's you choose the more assertive you are...

    -----

    Ok, can confirm that. Just did the test again forcing myself to choose only 3's, no ambiguity or neutrality in any answer. Still came out INFP but all percentages were higher and the A part was 92% Assertive 8% Turbulent

    I very much relate to the description of empath, and have for many years. Is anyone aware of how this has impacted their health, if at all? For me, situations that are triggering for empathy also raise my blood pressure, for example. At 74 I still have not been able to “calm” my body’s reactivity to stress to the extent I would like to. I do monitor caffeine and sugar. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Diane

    Number 6 brings up something that constantly annoys me about the STO/STS new-age theme that I constantly see people talking about.

    "6. They Give Too Much Sometimes

    Like I said before, empaths are natural born healers. They have a natural urge to help other people. They very easily put themselves aside too much and this can cause a lot of emotional trauma for them. If they ignore their own feelings for too long they will all build up an overflow eventually. Watch out for them to be doing a little too much for other people. You might want to warn them of it."

    I know when situations in life call for me to make a sacrifice for someone else, and I can make a decision like that with ease, and no regrets.

    But I wish more people would realize that "Service To Others" does not imply complete self-denial. If so, then I have no interest in "ascending." :-)

    Much love to all on this thread,
    Joe

    Yes, for me it usually translates into added stress. Breathing is one of the main ways I try to dissolve it. The other technique that I've had to work at over the years is detachment.

    It may sound contrary to what empathy is, but if I didn't learn to intentionally not care so much about something or someone, it would impact my health more than it does. It's not to say that I'm choosing to love someone less. It's more like laying out conditions for yourself to determine when empathy is warranted and when it's not. You probably already know when no amount of kindness will change a person's mood. That's when it's time to wall off whatever effect they are having on you inside.

    The same way we have to learn to see our ego at work and keep it on a leash, I've had to do the same with this instinct called empathy. My martyrdom has its limits. lol

    Thanks, Joe I remember as a young child needing to care for my mother, since she had no one else to take care of her, or so it seemed. I agree that putting ourselves first is truly our first responsibility, although that’s not exactly what you said. If we aren’t there isn’t going to be anything to give, at least not in a healthy way.
    I agree the breathing is really important - I keep “intending” to go to a Yoga class, but I notice I haven’t gotten there yet! LOL

    I'll add a caveat to this list.
    Empaths are targets for ghosts as well.
    I have two paths I've noted in my life that have led me to have interactions with ghosts.
    The first path was being an empath. I could sense ghosts when they were around, and ghosts knew I could sense them, so this gave them a way of gaining my attention and thus my energy.
    Where your attention goes, so to does your energy.
    As such empaths are often haunted people.
    I'm not sure if the writer of the initial post by the OP would be interested in this information but there it is.

    Thank you for this topic! An awareness came in this afternoon that I would like to share. It is quite straightforward..

    Through our bodies and consciousness there are many distractor implants that operate for the benefit of the system. By 'system' I refer to the interdenominational one overlaying most of humanity's original essence for millennia. Even though our emphatic tendencies ('abilities') are considered 'good', being an 'empath' is a type of a program on Earth (as the virtual-simulation/AI version overlayed over the original) and literally means taking attachments unto you.. that allows all interdenominational 'celebration' that happens for millennia to run smoothly as a jumping 'network' from one to another.

    Humanity's true essence as spirit has no value in emotions and feelings as they are experienced today (heightened for the benefit of being a food extract) and it's movement is more harmonious and neutral in it's flow as consciousness and awareness. It holds unattached, unconditional love.

    Distractor implants are removable - they refer to all areas of our life like- shame and guilt and anger and love and are not differentiating between what may be considered as 'good' and 'bad' which are both bound to the law of polarity and duality, as a point of entrapment.

    Will I divorce the empath program and not identify with it anymore? It makes sense to me.

    I hereby revoke, rebuke, remove, denounce, renounce, destroy, uncreate, declare null & void any and all agreements and agreement of entrapment, spiritual contracts and consents to do with 'empatic' tendencies being the conveyer for dimensional systems that attempts to breach my sovereignty in truth and essence of who I am. Let it be known - I do not consent. This is void on all levels and dimensions, all space and time, in all that is related to my essence inside the worlds of illusions..

    I do not consent for humanity not being told about the layers of realities presented to it, and being prevented by gross deception from exercising it's free will in it's truest aspect and through choice .



    This is the LAW, and I am the Law, and so it is ~

    Many Blessings,

    Limor
