I hate crowds. It's your prerogative as to whether or not you believe I'm empathic, but I get pretty close to wigging out when there are that many people milling around, engaging in conversations, all subconsciously worked up by the ubiquitous advertisement, entertainment, and glamor of a place like a mall or theme park. It's sort of like a psychic overload, I guess.
The funny thing is, if everyone is sitting still, or all focused on or paying attention to the same thing, even if they're jumping around (like at a concert), it doesn't bother me.
Good times, I guess.

Well, this is weird, for a long time i have noticed that i can pick up on peoples emotions without them showing them. For example, in a crowd of people, i can pick up peoples emotions etc and feel what they are feeling without even making contact with them weird to say the least, how would you explain it?
( note: if your gonna joke and take the piss, dont waste your time..ill flame back )

I hate social situations because I can usually read people's emotions. It's mainly an instinct, I can just feel someone's personality and what they're like. I dunno if it's psychic, but it gets really draining. In fact, it becomes extremely overwhelming.
Cure? Alcohol. Numb the senses.
