well a characteristic flaw of people who are emotionally sensitive is the need for companionship. Problem is that when you desire it so strongly you end up quickly jumping into a situation you probably should have thought about first...I know I have
it's tough...thing is I am not sure I am gifted so to speak...I think I just have a talent to read. In a way I think empathy CAN be explained by pure psychology without being mystical about it. There are even tests people can take to measure how easily they recognize emotion through pictures of faces and videos. I think recognition is a huge part of it...but then again...there are those unknown forces acting IMO...so am I gifted? I dunno...doubt it...but I think I have a few talents. That's why I am going for my masters in psychology... I love what I do and can read people so it's a good choice for me. Plus I love to help people.
But again just as I have talents I also have weaknesses too. That is one of the things that always bothered me about indigos, or starchildren or whatever...they have these talents right? But guess what? So does everyone else. The problem I always saw with people who "claim" to be an indigo or a starchild is that they want to be recognized for it in some grand way. Now it is true every human wants to be recognized to a degree. I am a very honest and open person. I know I fall into that zone sometimes but it's when it takes on this grand scale is where problems start.
sorry for that rant...
Anyway...point is I think the mind is so underated. I think the electrcity put out by the human body isn't just some byproduct and some people are very good at picking it up. I can read emotions well...problem is everyone else can read mine because I wear mine on my sleeve...ALOT
do you find any weaknesses being empathetic OP?
