Symptoms of Empathy

Here are some symptoms of empathy that I’ve found from different places on the web. Hope it helps a little. ^_^

Some Symptoms of Empathy:

1. Acute senses – i.e. sense of smell, taste, sight, touch, hearing etc.
2. Acute awareness of the feelings of those around them and feeling deeply for those in pain or suffering
3. Often easily hurt
4. Avoidance of conflict where possible preferring to keep things harmonious
5. Easily startled by noise
6. Easily moved to tears because of deep feeling
7. Nervous in crowded situations
8. People feel safe around them and able to talk to them easily. Even complete strangers will talk to them about personal things without consciously intending to do so
9. Animals and children love and are attracted to them
10. Easily affected by the weather
11. Their greatest gift is to perceive with the heart
12. They are usually a blessing to be around as they are nurturing and caring
13. Music and harmony are very important to them. They can lose themselves completely while listening to music that resonates with them.

Here are some other symptoms, which do not get as much notice as the ones above:
