I wanted to just kind of say hi and introduce myself. I'm still not 100% sure if I share your empath abilities. But I do know that I am extremely sensitive especially to people's energies (not so much emotions) and also the energies of the earth and certain places (don't get me started on my recent Pearl Harbor visit). I've noticed that I'm more aware when multiple people have a similar emotion, and I've just been feeling horrible since America's recent election. Especially living in a state that voted democrat. There's so much sadness and fear that I just want to hide under a blanket 24/7. I've been reading a lot of forums on here and I still don't feel like I connect with what all of you go through. I'm still really interested in your gifts and I at least feel like I have a small similarity with you guys so it's comforting. I'm looking forward to my journey of self discovery. Hopefully I can learn a thing or two from everyone to help clear my mind be soul.

It sounds like you could be an empath based on your descriptions. Here's a list I found online of different types of empaths to help you identify where your gifts are. Most empaths are more than one category of empath.
The following are the common empath types:
- Claircognizant Empath
This is normally defined by the capacity to just understand something must be done, or is true or deceptive, without any basis in reason or logic. Most often this type of empath knows when someone is lying; hiding something or when something is right or not.
- Emotionally Sensitive Empath
Many empaths tend to be emotionally sensitive and they can emotionally and physically feel emotions from another individual before they even expressed it.
- Physically Sensitive Empath
Many Empaths can also be physically open to bodily pains and other people’s sicknesses. This will be an especially useful ability in healing, and frequently shows itself in the Empath’s own body.
- Fauna Empath
This type of empath can feel, hear and communicate with animals.
- Flora Empath
This type of Empath can connect with plants, having the capability to receive signals that are mental and physical.
- Geomantic Empath
The goemantic empaths are readers of energy of earth. Many are able to predict and feel natural disaster before they happen.
- Medium Empath
This kind of Empath can see, hear, and feel spirits, generally from dead individuals.
- Psychometric Empath
This is the ability to receive information, impressions and energy from physical items like clothes, photographs, jewelry etc.
- Precognitive Empath
This kind of Empath can feel the occurrence of a situation or an event before it really happens. Normally, this is shown or as physical/mental senses.
- Telepathic Empath
This type of empath can read a person’s unexpressed thoughts.
Being an empath has many positives and negatives; you can either help someone or be drowned by the absorbed emotions.
