Have you ever sensed you’re more emotional and in tune with people around you than your counterparts? Perhaps you sense you have a heightened intuition, and are more spiritual than the people around you. If you answered yes, you may just be an empath.

Empaths are an inquisitive bunch and are very often affected by the energies of the people around them. They have a deep rooted ability to intuitively feel and perceive others and their emotions.

Think you may be an empath, but not sure? Here are some traits of an empath that might help you answer your question:
