    Red face Empaths and MBTI type

    Hiiiya,

    Just wondering if anyone on here is an empath?

    What is your MBTI type? And how does it relate to your type?

    Judith Orloff wrote a book called "The Empath's survival guide: Life strategies for sensitive people"

    In her book she has a test to see if you are or not, here is a short version of it:

    QUIZ: AM I AN EMPATH?

    Ask yourself:
    Have I been labeled as “too emotional” or overly sensitive?
    If a friend is distraught, do I start feeling it too?
    Are my feelings easily hurt?
    Am I emotionally drained by crowds, require time alone to revive?
    Do my nerves get jarred by noise, smells, or excessive talk?
    Do I prefer taking my own car places so that I can leave when I please?
    Do I overeat to cope with emotional stress?
    Am I afraid of becoming engulfed by intimate relationships?

    If you answer “yes” to 1-3 of these questions, you’re at least part empath. Responding “yes” to more than 3 indicates that you’ve found your emotional type.

    Recognizing that you’re an empath is the first step in taking charge of your emotions instead of constantly drowning in them. Staying on top of empathy will improve your self-care and relationships.


    Here's the website I got it from: How to Find Out Your Emotional Type - Judith Orloff MD





    She also has a test in the book to know what type of empath you are: emotional, physical or intuitive. And then heyoka empaths have all of the 'abilities'.

    I relate a lot to the empath stuff up there and I am a ENxP (Not sure on which one). I think it makes me more introverted and more sensitive than most Ne doms would be as I cannot stand crowds due to the sheer amount of emotions flying around plus I am sensitive to outer stuff like nosy places stress me out BTW ive a question to pose of my own . I was wondeing do you think there is also a ennagram link too?

    Interesting question!

    Once I check out enneagrams more I'll give that some thought.

    Isn't there a healer enneagram .. or is that my bad memory?

    There's bound to be a way in which types interact with these internal or external behaviours that can be at least theorised.


    Also, what are your thoughts on mental health and intuitive empaths?

    I read several of Orloff's books. I found them to be very helpful in separating my own emotions from those of others and learning better how to deal with unregulated people expressing strong emotions.

    I do believe that Fe users are usually on the empath scale, to some degree, but that must be developed.

    ...What's her MD? I'm skeptical. Anyway, I read a lot of this kind of junk when I was younger and trying to explain why I have these traits. Actually looking into ways that one can be neurodiverse is far more useful than these sort of mumbo jumbo self-help pop psych things, because they often come bundled with other issues, including past history of abuse, neurodiversity, panic disorder, anxiety disorder, social anxiety, sensory integration disorder, avoidance, good god there's such a long list of things that basically could better give insight about potential problems as opposed to just one label with overly general "strategies" which anybody with common sense would have come up with by themselves if they sat down to think about it for five minutes.
    There's no love in fear.
