Signs That You Are An Empathetic Person

Empathy is defined as the ability to experience the feelings of others. An empathetic person can feel the emotions of those around her/him. This personality trait is one of the essential Points on which are based social relations and allows us to improve constantly. If you want to know if you are one of  those empathetic people, here are 12 signs that do not lie.
They feel the emotions of others
The more emphatic people are close to people, the more they can feel what others are enduring. The distance often has no effect on empathy when people are strongly bonded to each other.
They are intuitive
An empathetic person can be aware of what others feel toward her, even if the feeling is not pleasant and that the person does everything to hide it.
Empathetic people have the ability to discern the feelings of others, though how they act or communicate do not really match what they feel. They can determine if the person is honest or not and they almost never make mistakes!
They feel the suffering of others and like to help oppressed people
Because the empathic people are very sensitive and can feel the pain and suffering of others intensely, they can not resist to see violence towards humans or animals. On television or in reality, they try to avoid as much this situation to spare the pain they may experience.
However, they did not hesitate to help the oppressed. Empathetic people are altruistic and are often those who do good deeds: helping stray animals, abused children, elderly people ...
They consider public places as too stimulants
Empathetic people may experience a feeling of exhaustion after being in a public place. This can be explained by the fact that they can feel all the energy and emotions that fill space.
They can feel the pain of others
It is very common that the empathetic and sensitive people experience the pain experienced by people who are close to them. This case is very common among husbands of pregnant women who may show the same symptoms of pregnancy as women. This is the couvade syndrome, where the person is experiencing morning sickness, pain in the back and may even feel the pain of childbirth.
They were affected by the atmosphere
The atmosphere of the day can influence an empathetic person, although it does not touch them directly. For example, a retired person will be very enthusiastic about the upcoming of weekend, but as she/he no longer working during the week, she/he may feel depressed at the beginning of the week.
They are always listening
Listening to others is one of the main qualities of empathetic people. They rarely share their emotions and feelings, unless they are with someone they trust.
But although empathetic people love listening to others, narcissists are not part of their list!
They are dreamy
Empathetic are real dreamers and often feel the need to be alone. They need to withdraw sometimes from their surroundings and environment where their feelings are overwhelmed, so as to enjoy a respite in their own world. This moment of loneliness brings them peace and comfort and allows them to think or dream about their future.
They do not like to take part in activities they do not like.
Taking part in unattractive or monotonous activities is a real imprisonment for emphatic people. And when they do not get involved, other people may make their remark or may criticize them for being too lazy. Thus empathetic person may be very sensitive, and can be easily injured by such criticism.
They are very creative
The sensitivity is not the only trait of the empathetic personalty, but they are also very creative. Whether in painting, singing, writing, drawing or other art forms, these people find ingenious ways to express themselves.
They are very sensitive to the music
Empathetic people generally do not have a specific musical tendency but rather listening to everything that touches them. When a song exactly meets their feelings of the moment, they become very appreciative. When it comes to songs or sad music, that's may affect them, especially if they find the lyrics matching one of their life experience, such as  a break or mourning.
They attract people
People are often attracted to empathetic people for their warm and genuine character. Their ability to listen to others and their kindness make them very popular people.
