Yes, empathy and telepathy can be controlled and you can in fact learn to block it out completely. I'm not saying I recommend that course of action,
but it can be done.
As was mentioned previously (as in several years ago now) in this thread, given a bit of time and effort you can learn to tune things out -- a filter
of sorts, if you can imagine it that way. I'm empathic, and I had to learn to rein all of that in when I was dating a girl in Greenwich Village a
decade or so ago. I took a bus into NYC to see her the first time and while we were headed to the subway to go back to her place from Port Authority,
I was almost in anguish from the flood of thoughts and emotions swirling around me in the packed terminal. When two trains came in on rails under us
at the subway station, the sudden rush of energy and emotion of all those people just about dropped me to my knees.
It was overwhelming, but given time I learned to control it better. For me, it was a matter of learning to focus my attentions and actively pull back
my senses. I used her as the focus for my thoughts, and she helped me out a lot. Eventually I could unconsciously alter the level of sensitivity I had
to the emotions around us. I can't say it was always easy though.
