Someone who is using his or her Strength of empathy has an intuitive sense of other’s emotions and feelings. They sometimes can hear the unanswered questions and anticipate needs of others before it’s even expressed.

People with high Empathy put themselves in other’s shoes. They can instinctively understand the thoughts and emotions of those around them, sometimes before that person has the ability of understand it themselves.
How do they feel?
Individuals with Empathy feel or perceive people’s joy and pain. Their disposition is powerful and assists them in saying the right thing in the right tone.
How do they behave?
Those with high empathy see the world through the eyes of others and share their perspective. They help other’s express their feelings and find the right words. Building and forming relationships that have great emotional depth is a trademark of someone high in empathy.
A few tips to help those with Empathy to live at their best:
• Make sure you take time each day to decompress.
