Taking my energy sensitivity quiz is the first step towards understanding more about who you are!

If you suspect that you may be an empath or highly sensitive person, this quiz can help you find out if that’s true for you.

Being an empath with a high level of energy sensitivity isn’t uncommon. Between 15-20% of the population is energy sensitive. And most are completely unaware of their own sensitivity. There are several labels that fall under the umbrella of energy sensitivity. Empaths, HSP (highly sensitive persons), lightworkers, psychics, energy workers, energy healers, highly-creative people, and even those who are “on the spectrum” may experience energy sensitivity.

Energy sensitivity isn’t a disorder and it’s not an illness. You aren’t crazy. But society can sometimes make it seem like you are because you’re different.

Physiologically, you have a nervous system that is far more sensitive than the other 80-85% of the population. It allows you to experience subtle energies that the majority of the world never gets to experience. It causes you to feel the energy of the world in a more powerful way. And chances are you have mirror neurons that are more active as well. This can cause you to experience the emotions of others as your own.

Once you understand more about who you are, you will be better equipped to function in the world in a healthier way!
