I believe they are people who have a desperate need to feel special so they convince themselves that picking up on another person's emotions is a magical power when in reality, all healthy people can do that.

So yes, they exist but no, they don't have any special abilities.

sometimes this group feels more like a fantasy RPG then a mom's website with how crazy you people act.

Lots of meditation is how I did it. It took lots of practice but over time I learned to "block" things.

Quoting Anonymous:

I believe I am one also but I am having trouble blocking. How do I accomplish that?



Quoting Anonymous:

Yes I am one but I also know how to block if need be.

I need help with that. I've dealt with this weirdness forever and I want to feel "normal" and not all bipolar.

IMO it is special because not everyone can do it. I can but dh can't.

Unfortunately and fortunately i am one. What's not to believe? I don't see it as a magical power though, just emotional sensitivity. Everyone has strengths and weaknesses, and I think it has a lot to do with personality types.
