I'm just wondering how many empaths on this site consider themselves to be introverts? It would be logical considering how much of the outside energy you are already absorbing into your own personal space and spirit!

And, in case you're wondering, I'm very much an introvert. I have nothing against our race I just need a little more distance from the general population then most other people seem to need!

I am very introverted. I do like having company but I prefer it to be one or two people at a time and only people I am comfortable with.

Us being in the smaller percentage might be why we think differently. We know people are different because we are different from them. The majority is not highly sensitive or introverted so they don't understand or accept our minority as well. They get energized by groups of people instead of drained. I can get energized from good company too but only in small amounts and one or two people at a time. In China, I believe it is, it is the introverted and highly sensitive that are the most popular and the ones everyone wants to be friends with. Here in Canada we are discouraged from being sensitive or introverted, extroversion is the accepted personality.

I'm very introverted. I don't like crowds. I don't like being around a lot of people I don't know. Even a lot of people I do know, it's difficult to be there with them. I can also be very social if I need to be, such as when I am at work. I've handled many a day where we had tons of customers. Of course, I was overwhelmed, but I just went with the flow of things until every customer was gone.

Ahhhh this is an interesting topic it would t surprise me if most Empaths are introverts, I used to be painfully shy and I am personally more of an introvert, in more detail a test I took said I was slightly more introverted then extraverted purely because social interaction doesn't make me feel energised and I get my energy from being alone rather than being with people (I always leave parties and large social gatherings early), but then also being a HSP I have to go away and and sit in a dark room and recover from over stimulation anyway however, ironically I do enjoy socialising and talk to many people on a daily basis which even often include having conversations with strangers but it doesn't give me an energised buzz, its quite strange really XD, Yin x

Let me say this to start off, thank you for all of the comments. I believe that the vast majority of higher frequency people are introverts. It's a self defense reaction to your new found abilities as you learn to use and adapt to them.

With that said, gfk4351, you are most certainly not cursed and in fact blessed. I honestly believe that we all asked, or earned, the right to live on and in a higher frequency then the majority of the rest of our race. We are creating the next level of spiritual growth for our planet and our race as well. It may seem difficult most of the time but you are all incredible host spirits to the evolution of our species.

It does concern me when I hear that someone did some heinous act and everyone starts describing how he, or she, was this loner that didn't want anything to do with the rest of humanity. When in fact, we are exactly opposite of this definition spiritually speaking on this site and others like it.

The next time any of you look in a mirror just remember that you are looking at a very refined soul that is opening the doorway for the rest of humanity to a much truer and pure universe. Be proud of what you are and what you stand for. You took a challenge that most others are not ready to take. This is not a curse, it's a challenge, and a blessing that was bestowed on all of us here on EC.

Peace........ :-)

Carolanne I was happy to read your response about being an extrovert. I'm sure that there are many empaths that fall in this category however I suspect that many extroverts don't seek out help in dealing with this gift on sites like this one, though I very well could be wrong. Extroverts are probably much more accepting of this strange new world and may truly be the very first group of individuals to have come to an understanding in this area.

If you do consider yourself an extrovert I would love for you to add your comments here on this discussion as it helps to balance out both sides of this equation!

And gfk4351 thanks for the friend request, and you're welcome! We all definitely need support through these trying times and difficult decisions that must be dealt with daily!

I can relate with just about everything that everyone posted in this discussion. It's taken, almost my whole life, but I'm finally learning how to force everything back far enough away from me to just be happy, no matter what is happening around me. And recently I have noticed that almost everything is starting to brighten and become a much more positive experience in my life then what it used to be. The only way I can truly explain this is by saying that I finally realized just to go with the flow of whatever is happening and it almost always turns into a positive event no matter how it started out!

Tanja, I read your comment a couple of days ago and had to go home and think about it before responding. The reason is because you kind of woke up a part of me that i guess had been asleep for a while, or at the very least, you reminded me of a part of my past, not sure which?

At any rate, there was a time in my life when I was very quiet, to the point where everyone assumed that I was just incredibly shy, which I was. However, as the years past people kept on telling me if you have something to say, "Say it."

Eventually I started speaking my mind about many things. The irony of this is that after I started opening up many people weren't all that interested in what I had to say after all, so lately I've begun to, like you said, "Zip it."

As I already stated, I'm definitely an introvert, and have no idea whether, "zipping it" is what I should do or let it all hang out. The most interesting thing of all about this, is how your comment kind of unlocked a space in my mind that I had kind of locked down and forgotten about. At the very least I think that it is now time for me to reevaluate my past with my present!

Thanks Tanja, it was probably time for this to happen! Perhaps, deep inside my soul, this was the purpose for starting this discussion and my subconscious needs some closure, or redirection, will see?

I too am an introvert. I actually just yesterday FINALLY figured out what I have had going on all of my life, I am an empath. I have "known" things and can feel whats going on with everyone around me. The fact is my health has become extremely poor I think because of it. I feel like I have to avoid most people because they are vampires to me. Also this may be a good time to ask a question. Do other people have a problem with not just the living approaching you but the dead also? I feel like there are hundreds of dead people constantly talking to me, touching me and just in my face. They are wanting something but I am so overwhelmed I can't even hear their words. I can really see I have a LOT to learn.

I'm not sure I would use the word toxic, but I do think that many of us are ready to fly in a spiritual manner. I think some of us just want mankind to mend their ways so we can all move on together as one race!

OK Yuufa, now it's your turn, what do you think?
