10 Traits Of An Empath – Signs You Are A Highly Sensitive Person

By | August 14, 2019


Brainy Dose Presents: 10 Traits of An Empath – Signs You’re
A Highly Sensitive Person Empaths are highly sensitive people who deeply
feel the emotions of those around them. And just like introverts, empaths are likely
to feel overwhelmed by crowds and loud noises. They are also prone to feeling drained and
completely exhausted to the point of fatigue. Although introverts and empaths share many
traits, there are several characteristics that distinguish empaths. Keep watching to discover the most common
traits of an empath! Number 1 – Highly Sensitive A highly sensitive person is sensitive to
many types of energies, and reacts emotionally to being
over-stimulated. But, it’s not like you cry over spilt milk
or anything, you just feel emotions – very deeply. If someone is telling you about an incredibly
difficult time they went through, chances are you’ll be the one who starts tearing
up. On the other hand, you’re quite susceptible
to extreme mood swings, because you are so deeply affected by the emotions of others. Number 2 – Read People Empaths have a deep sense of knowing when
it comes to understanding other people’s motives. You can usually tell if a person is lying
or not being authentic! You are very observant of the subtle messages
other people send through body language and facial expressions, so you can easily read
people like a book. Number 3 – Peacemaker Being an empath means that you simply can’t
stand disagreement. In the face of conflict, you will either completely
avoid the situation, or seek to resolve the issue immediately. Your motto is “there is always a way,”
and thanks to your persistence, you usually find it. You’re also very sensitive to violence and
aggression in the media. You are deeply affected by the news, television
and movies. You may be moved to tears or even feel ill
from watching violence on television. Number 4 – Quirky And Creative Having a keen energy antenna not only leads
you toward being an empath, but usually a cultural creative, as well. Whether a painter, musician, mathematician,
inventor, or social revolutionary, you feel inspiration from beyond, and this propels
you to do things that move society forward; Things that most people don’t currently
understand, and that seem to go against the grain. Number 5 – Eclectic Taste in Music Empaths tend to listen to a broad range of
music genres. Your music preferences are usually influenced
by your varying emotional states. However, you should be especially mindful
of the messages in the music you listen to! You can be deeply affected by the lyrics in
a song. Sometimes, you’re better off just listening
to instrumental music. Number 6 – Love Animals And Nature Empaths tend to connect deeply with animals,
and they’re not going to be the people who tie their dogs up outside for hours on end. You likely have a pet or two at home, and
you may feel the need to be outdoors often in order to neutralize negative emotions you
take on from others. And since you can feel the pain of animals,
eating meat just throws you off. You may decide that it’s easier on your
heart to simply go vegan. Number 7 – You Often Daydream During Conversations People often go to empaths when they need
to talk about something, and empaths are usually great listeners, but they’re not good at
listening to a bunch of small talk. One second you’ll be listening to your friend
telling you about her day at work, and the next you’ll be thinking about what someone
said to you earlier, trying to decipher its meaning. If something is particularly boring or completely
disconnected from emotion, you tend to drift off into your own little world. Number 8 – Instantly Feel The Vibe In A Room Has this happened to you? You walk into a party or social event, and
you immediately feel the energy of the group. Whether it’s positive or negative! If you sense it as positive, you likely join
in with the socializing. If you sense it as negative, you may just
decide to leave. Number 9 – Free Spirited Empaths at heart, are free spirits who find
rules and routines debilitating. Spending eight hours a day in a cubicle? No thanks! You get bored easily if you aren’t properly
stimulated, and if you don’t find what you do for a living very interesting, you’re
probably going to end up leaving your job sooner than expected. You like to feel free to express yourself
in the world, in your own unique way, and you are often drawn to adventure, travel – and
of course, freedom. Number 10 – Need More ‘Alone Time’ Than Most
People Empaths often attract people into their lives
like magnets because of their gentle compassionate nature. But you pick up others’ emotional energies
like a sponge, and this drains you. You feel like others actually suck the energy
out of you! You just want to get away and be by yourself
to reset your energy field and gain your sense of balance back. Solo time also helps you feel inspired and
creative. If you find you resonate with many of these
things on our list, then you’re probably an empath. If so, take it as a great thing, a gifted
and creative way of being. Tell us which of these characteristics you
possess? Are YOU an empath? Let us know in the comments below! Thanks for watching! If you like this video, give it a thumbs up

    I am beyond the charts on all 10. I have known this is what my problem has been for years, and I have been burned so many times because of it….. I feel someone else's pain, and I feel like I can help, then get burned. And its so hard for people like us to learn by mistakes, because it is so hard to let the brain rule over the extraordinary emotion we feel. Can all you true emapaths out there count how much money you have lost due to being an empath??? lol…… I think I need an empath friend!

    I used to feel like I’m the bad energy, or I suck peoples energies, Coz I would always feel depleted . People with strong will power would make it seem like I am weak , especially at work where we always have to prove ourselves. Now I know I was feeling like that because I’m an empath .

    Definately an Empath. Empaths are healers of earth and people depending on what type of Empath you are. We are instant lie detectors to Narcissists and other energy vampires. We are recharged with moving bodies of water, and animals love us. We hate violence and arguing. Empaths dont watch the news. We love to be in Nature rather than a grocery store. Study your Empath type and define it. You are needed in the world and thru mankind. We are here to heal others and the world. Sending love and peace to all.

    I'm extremely empathetic. Been called weird and disliked since 3 years old . Very few people like me. It's ok, though. I like me! The happiest time in my life has been the 13 years I've lived alone. My best friends are fellow empaths, but I need the alone cocoon to recharge and heal from all the negatives in the world.

    I'm an empath….
    I was driving to work the other morning and saw a dead cat on the side of the road. Did a U Turn and picked the cat up(cat was all together with abit of blood) and put it next too a letter box under a tree.I thought it was important that the owners could bury it and get closure,instead of being run over more.
    Just a part of being an empath..

    I definitely think that I was born as an Empath. I was very sensitive and if I watched or heard about something sad it would consume me for weeks. I think as you get older you learn how to manage your emotions better. I’m probably still an Empath but I’ve learned how to not let others energy directly affect me as much. I do definitely love my alone time! 🙂

    This is so true! My parents don't understand me being an introvert and how I like to be alone. At times, I do like to have fun with people, but to a certain extent, but since I have strict, overprotective parents, I'm not allowed to go out so I just stay in my room. Plus I have no siblings so I don't hang out with people. What I hate a lot is eating meat. I'm fine with some meat but I don't like chicken, but still eat it for my parents. I'm underweight and when I told my parents I wanted to be a vegetarian, they agreed but they didn't actually agree. They forgot and just gave me meat so I gave up. So many things I wanna do yet can't do it, gotta wait four more years

    HSPs unfortunately are far game for those who are hartless and soulless. Narcissists that consider us as folks to manipulate and destroy if it takes their fancy. Be careful out there you peace loveing people, you are the balancing energy for this coming 5D vibration…be wise about who you allow in, there are many black widows out there, Peace. Steve T ☮️

    The feeling i never forgot as highly sensitive was when i went to a sea aquarium for first time. I had a very strong impression that i didnt expect i would feel very emotional. I can’t stand watching or be at the place for a long time. The exploring time became a trauma to me instead. Seeing and feeling those sea creatures in the aquaring is not good at all they should be sent back to where they belong.

    I never even heard of this until today
    And this resonates with my heart & spirit 🤗

    I’m a very social butterfly and outgoing person
    But I have to be alone for long periods of time to recharge my energy
    Bcuz people are so draining (not always in a negative way)

    My First Lady at church told me there is a spiritual word for this (I forgot..sorry)
    But basically she said you have to have someone who is stronger than you pray over you and cover you until your spirit is strong
    So you’re not drained

    That’s why in church you may see someone praying over the pastor (before, after, or during service)
    It’s so his energy isn’t depleted for giving it away during service

    Thank you for this video
    I’ve learned so much about myself

    I don't watch news, only family friendly movies R rated. Small talk makes me day dream. I need lots of time alone in prayer and Bible Study, so I'm not really alone, I'm with my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Being empathetic makes me pray for people a lot, mostly in tears for them. Just want to keep my focus on the good in people, look past their mistakes and see the good in the world. But I cry in prayer so much over this terrible world we live in.

    Sometimes being an empath sucks 😂 After watching a movie with anyone I tell them that I need space because movies affect me so deeply. It can send into a spiral of depression or even a panic attack sometimes and people tell me to “man up”. It sucks, but hey we got some extra sensors that others don’t, so don’t take these senses for granted. 👍
