In the past few years I've noticed that like-minded people seek me out - find me in the most unlikely places. In fact, they don't have to be like-minded, sometimes they can just be regular people. People trust me easily, and I have no idea why. I would not call myself a trustworthy person, nor would I call myself an untrustworthy person either. I would define myself as loyal to those I care for. People also feel an urge to talk to me about the most personal of things, even when I hardly know them. Things they wouldn't tell a single soul. They feel that I understand them completely, and desire to confide in me and ask for advice. On top of all this, I find I can quite easily get close to almost anyone I like, close enough for them to call me their best friend within a few months if not less. I attract people who interest me: People with Bipolar Disorder, self-loath or anorexia. I don't know why, and I don't know anything about empathy either.
My question to you is, am I empathic, or if not, what is up with me?
