You are an extremely moral and caring person. You truly live each day of your life by the “golden rule”, treating others the way you would want to be treated.

You are a great listener who truly cares about what others are going through.
Being an extreme empathizer means that you often share in others’ emotions. Seeing others happy makes you happy, seeing others sad makes you sad, and seeing others mad makes you mad. Even when watching a movie, it feels as if you’re there experiencing all of the emotions that the movie characters experience.
You see the world as not just black-and-white, but as a million shades of gray. You are able to understand someone else’s viewpoint regardless of how different it may be from your own. You truly are able to “put yourself in their shoes” while trying to understand others’ choices and reasoning.
Being an extreme empathizer means that you sometimes have difficulty with systemizing traits, which lie on the opposite end of the spectrum.
