    Well, here is my definition of such an empath: "Empathy is recognizing that someone else is feeling pain, and feeling that pain yourself. Empathy isn't necessarily compassion, because you don't have to do anything for them and you don't have to only wish the best for them when you use empathy. Empathy isn't magically knowing what another person feels; empathy is guessing what a person feels based on previous experiences or knowledge of what people have felt in the person's situation. The default setting for empaths when they hear about someone having a problem is to exercise empathy. The problem with empaths is just that; they don't have natural protection against exercising empathy. Because of this, empaths may get stuck in poor coping techniques like always blocking their empathy completely or turning the pain they feel for others into hatred toward those who made them feel pain. Empaths need to learn how to acknowledge someone's pain without having to feel that pain themselves."

    Maybe it's because Fi and Fe don't really exist.

    Flying in the face of sensitivity like the back of a facepalm. Some kind of hybrid, highly sensitive person, with empathic abilities.

    Will the compiler catch these for me or do I have to wait for a runtime crash?
