Yes, I believe I am an empath although I really didn't consider it until recently. I was always the moral booster in my former workplace, as I just knew what each person needed to feel better. A close coworker pal also said that I always knew when to approach her with a little something extra (small gift, homemade treat, etc.), and she wondered how I instinctively knew that she needed some extra kindness as she was having a hard time. (She always was good at hiding her feelings so it is not like it showed or anything.)
I also wonder if HSPs have a higher percentage of people who may be considered psychic, or if the empath is just better at reading people (or both).
I found this link informative, too: healing.about.com/cs/empathic/a/uc_empatht
It is nice to hear that HSPs are kind!
I read in an HSP book that only about 20% of the population are HSPs.
This is a great topic. Thanks for starting it!
