- Are you afraid of becoming suffocated by intimate relationships?
- Do you startle easily?
- Do you react strongly to caffeine or medications?
- Do you have a low threshold for pain?
- Do you tend to isolate yourself socially?
- Do you absorb other people's stress, emotions, or symptoms?
- Do you get overwhelmed by multi-tasking, or prefer to do one thing at a time?
- Do you need a long time to recuperate after being with difficult people or energy vampires?
- Do you feel better in small cities or the country rather than in large cities?
- Do you prefer one-to-one interactions or small groups over large gatherings?
While I haven't read Dr. Orloff's book (yet), it sounds like it would be very helpful even if you are only somewhat empathic. The book has great reviews!
