Hi, I'm just wondering if anyone has heard of this sort of thing before. When I am around a person my thought patterns change and seem to parallel whome ever I'm speaking with. I'm able to finish their sentences and things like that. I also feel what they are feeling to a certain extent. This happens involuntarily and if feels like I really have no identity of my own, just fragments of other people I've met come to the surface fairly randomly. From one night to the next I will be thinking like two totally different people. I've only began to notice this recently in part due to the arguments I've had with my self. Is this an extreme case of empathy?

There is nothing special about this. These are your abilities, and can be useful for you in life. No ned to go to doctor, nor to make big deal about it.

Use them wisely.

Telepathic abilities are inherent in human beings. We are simply remembering how to use them now. Use them wisely, like Vertu said. There is really nothing special about this, and let me assure you, you are not the only person experiencing the awakening of these abilities - we all are.

If you read what I quoted out of context, it sounds like an extreme case of schitzophrenia! lol

Sounds like you have a high EQ. Some people just relate to others very well, a very high sense of empathy. You can sense someones emotional state easier than someone with a lower EQ. Its good, interviewers tend to higher people with high EQs because they are easy to get along with on the job, no drama and no worries.

I am exactly the same way, and the older I get the more I dislike it. I can get along with and think like anyone from bad guys to cops, to people in the corporate world to the homeless and it doesnt' matter how old they are either. Most everyone I've ever encountered say's the same thing "I've never met anyone like you, or we think exactly the same way" and want to be best friends. I'm 25 now and I to feel like I do not have my own identity. I used to think it was ADD (or ADHD), then I thought maybe stress, depression, way I was raised? - And I was medicated for all of them; but it's just exactly as you say and theres nothing you can do about it. This also applies to other things for me as well, such as bowling, pool, any sport or activity, anything. My scores and how I play depends on how the person that I'm with plays. I can be in an great mood, and with in seconds of being around someone and not even saying a word, I'm in the same mode they are in. My wife is amazed at how good I read people, and how I can tell the thought process, and what they are all about only after a look at them.

As I said, I don't like it but it works to my advantage everyday; and everyday I wish I could just be myself for once and not someone else.
I feel like a souless body.

I think I finally have an answer. I belive we have a sort of 'hyper' Mirror Neurons. Check it out. I was glued to the TV when this came on.

If I had the money I would go get a cat scan and I would guarantee
a lot more activity than usual in my 'Mirror Lobes'.

Gez, I wonder what sylvia browne's would look like,RNWE:2004-42,RNWE:en&q=mirror+neurons

there is a way to counter it. if something becomes a bother just set up a psychic shield. that way you can filter out what you want to deal with and what not. saved me a lot of headaches.

and you don't need a high EQ to have empathy. i for one score very low on EQ because i simply dont give a # about anyone any more. still i can sense their emotions and can use it to play with it.

especially helpfull when you have to negotiate for a new contract or something. mild manipulation

Yes, I seem to sympathize with those around me to a degree - and in some cases I get completely blocked off (in cases of real imoral behaviors and attitudes that aren't going to profit from my help)

There is nothing farther from the truth for me than the comment "it feels like I really have no identity of my own"
Actualy, I feel as if I'm the only one like me and it's pretty lonely. I feel like I'll never find another person that's truely compatable and who will understand and be ok AND happy living this way.

Spend some time in quietness, let yourself find what you feel is important and what you stand for. Find what part YOU have to play in this life and what it is YOU are supose to be doing and fighting for. You have lessons to learn AND teach.
