Thomas – Empathy is something we’re all soft wired for. We are able to experience the plight of others as if their plight was our won. It’s really an incredible ability, something that I think borders on being a superpower. And it’s a power that many forget about and leave behind. But there’s another class of people who don’t just acknowledge it, but embrace it. They are called empaths. They aren’t just good at feeling peoples’ emotions. They’re good at spotting fakes too. How?
They can sense a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
Perhaps the greatest tool in an empath’s kit is the ability to spot a wolf in sheep’s clothing. It’s someone who seems like they have great intentions but actually have the worst. Empaths are often wise beyond their years and can see right through the act.
They can tell when you’re insecure.
Often, people aren’t fake because they want to be malicious, but rather, because they aren’t comfortable with their true selves. It’s not always to be you, especially when the real you is someone you’d rather not be. Empaths can tell when you’re insecure about yourself and are putting on a fake front.
