Intuitive empathy is one of the Six types of empathy, with their intuition being their forte. “I would say all people are intuitive,” Richardson explains, noting that intuitive empaths in particular are people who receive intuitive guidance through any of the psychological pathways.
according to Judith Orloff, MDA psychiatrist and author Empath Survival GuideEmpaths, in general, tend to be “sensitive, loving, with big hearts, with finely tuned intuition.” But those big, receptive hearts can be very intense vulnerable for negative energy. In fact, says Orloff, intuitive empaths in particular may absorb things unintentionally, so it’s important for them to have ways of setting active boundaries.
While intuitive empaths may not necessarily be “introverted” per se, they can become overwhelmed by crowded settings or crowds and require alone time to recharge because negative environments can be very stressful.
Nunez notes that many intuitive empaths have likely had these traits since they were children, and if anything, they were stronger at the time. She explained that as children, we not only have a hard time understanding intuition and gut feelingsBut the world has a way of making us doubt ourselves.
