What Kind of Empathy Do You Feel?

Empathy is a strange emotion. It doesn't react to how we're doing, but to how someone else is. It's not an emotion in itself, as we feel for whatever another is feeling, and yet we can all recall how it is to FEEL empathy as a separate thing. One way to look at it is as a feeling of connectedness, your ability to put yourself in other people's shoes and feel as they do. Did you know there is more than one kind of empathy? This personality test is geared towards telling you - where do you fall on the empathy scale?
Not at all
A fair bit
You are a bit distracted, which is not necessarily a bad thing. You find it difficult to understand other people's feelings or put yourself in their shoes. In your opinion, most people are way over-dramatic and take things too personally. You also tend to get bored very easily when others are talking about themselves.
You have a profound need for quiet, and a desire to understand and analyze the world you live in, and to learn the deeper truths. You tend to be orderly and dedicated to building your life on a solid foundation of order and service. You value truth, justice, and discipline, and may be quick-tempered with those who do not.
Empathy-level wise, you fall in the average range. You are able to put yourself in the shoes of others when you want to, and are pretty in tune with the emotions of your loved ones. You care about your friends dearly, and do your best to help them in their time of need.
You do not have to assert yourself in order to inspire confidence. Your positive self image, founded upon the reality, not a projection, will readily communicate itself to others. You appear to be "happy in your own skin". It's contagious.
You're sweet, tender and compassionate and strive to serve humanity and to give to others by sharing knowledge and experience, or creative and artistic ability. You're idealistic, highly imaginative, intuitive, and spiritual. You seek after spiritual truth and often find it. You tend to be visionary and often inspire others. If you fail to develop your potential, you may become a dreamer, or misuse your power.
You feel the pain and discomfort of others involuntarily, and therefore have a very deep understanding of human emotions (because you feel so many all the time). You are so in touch with the feelings of others that you can sometimes guess their mood triggers before they can. Empathy is your sixth sense.
