Am I An Empath? Empaths are the emotional sponges of the world, absorbing everything around them while taking on each experience as their own. Often thought of as hyper-sensitive and sometimes moody, empaths sometimes don't know how to differentiate their own emotions from other people's emotions.

To avoid being dragged down by negativity, empaths should practice self-care. Some empaths feel vibrations from animals, while others mirror the illness in others. If you're an empath, consider it a gift!

If friends, family and work colleagues think of you as sensitive and kind, you might be an empath. Those emotions of yours that come out of nowhere could indicate that you have a strong intuition.

The gut feelings and inexplicable emotions are telltale signs of an empathetic personality. If you regularly need time to recharge and feel overwhelmed in crowds, you're probably an empath. Take the quiz to find out if you're an empath.
