Empath or Emotionally Intelligent

I agree, that these are two different things. I believe everyone is born with some degree of empathy, from psychic to regular (for lack of a better word), but with time, and as people mature and develop their sense of self, their empathy level changes as well (it can also go away and come back strongly, due to certain circumstances). Although, I believe, most adult empaths were born and stayed that way, though their gift can increase (develop) with time and experience.
Emotional intelligence is more related to IQ and personality, whereas, empathy is more related to the heart (emotions/feelings) and intuition. Definitely two different things.
