When it comes to unique personal gifts, few people are more gifted than empaths…and you’d do well to never mess with one.
Empaths can read your body language, and as a result, can usually read your mood, too. Often times, they may know what you’re thinking before you do. As a result, because they are able to read the room so well, they’re great listeners and problem solvers.
As a result, they’re great at human psychology. They can read people, and tell whether someone is lying or faking or genuine. They’ll know if you’re trying to play them.
In other words: They’re the people you want on your side…and not against you.
Check out these 10 reasons you shouldn’t ever cross an empath:
1) They naturally detect liars
There are lots of ways to detect lies, including uneven eye contact and other nonverbal tics. As a normal person, you can learn these tricks. For empaths, however, this comes naturally, as they have a gift for spotting lies intuitively.
2) They naturally sense jealousy
If you’re jealous (and you might be), empaths can tell. They’ll likely be polite, and not say anything about it, but they’ll know. In fact, it’s highly unlikely that they’ll say anything, because that could make you uncomfortable, and they’re considerate enough to not want to put you in that position. Instead, it’s more likely they’ll simply be even more humble to avoid triggering your jealousy in the future.
3) They can’t be fooled
Because empaths can read your thoughts and feelings, they can see through you, and you cannot fool them. When something doesn’t feel right, they’ll protect themselves, including distancing themselves from you. So don’t try and pull something over on them.
4) They recognize hatred
Because hatred is such a strong emotion, empaths can feel it a mile away. As a result, they’ll naturally distance themselves from such negative situations. They’d rather be comfortable in their own skin, being themselves.
5) They see into your prejudice
You might not be honest enough to see your own prejudices, but empaths have no such qualms. They will look right into you. We all have prejudices, and empaths see those prejudices.
6) They recognize your problems
If you say you’re okay, but aren’t, don’t expect that to fly with an empath. They see through that, and they’ll know you’re lying. So why would you bother? Just be clear and truthful with an empath.
7) They won’t stand for insincerity
False compliments and other related nonsense aren’t going to fly with an empath. They’ll know you’re trying to play them, or get something from them, and this is one of the fastest ways to get on their bad side.
8) They know when you’re going the wrong way
If you’re doing something you shouldn’t, or that isn’t the right fit for you, an empath will know. And if they’re your friend, they’ll try and warn you. Trust their intuition!
9) They’ll recognize acting
If you try to be someone that isn’t you, empaths will know. And they won’t stand for it. Phonies and fakes are the first thing empaths hate, and you don’t want to get on their bad side in that way.
10) They recognize exploitation
When someone tries to use them, empaths recognize that ploy, and they won’t stand for it! Instead, they’ll remove themselves from the situation.
