“Why Are Empaths Drawn to Takers and People with Personality Extremes?”
Based on my years of psychical research, I have found two main personality types correlated to those with strong psychical empathic ability. Both types tend to be drawn mainly to those who are takers because empaths are mainly givers consistently looking for more people to help.
The main difference in the two types is typically their reach. One type tends to keep a small circle (i.e. family and friends), while the other type will branch out into their entire community. The former tends to attract and seek out those who posses emotional and personality extremes, who often meet certain social goals more so then stable types, as these more extreme individuals tend to be more analytical and intellectually stimulating to the empath.
In addition, these extreme characters tend to be more exciting to the empath, even if that excitement is exhausting drama. Also, this type of empath is more introverted than the other type of empath, which tends to attract those with profound characteristics, be they highly extroverted or highly introverted (i.e. extreme personalities).
This type of empath can try to keep their company mainly positive and stable, but chances are, if they are the first type mentioned, they will get bored quickly, because this type thrives on challenges and problem solving. My advice for this type of empath is keep your company mixed, including some individuals that can be exhausting with a mix of those who energize you to keep a balance of energy and interest.
