To take YourTango’s test, simply look at the image above and first note what attracts you. Now read below to see how empathetic you are.
An empath is someone whose mood is influenced by how others are feeling – they are highly sensitive to the emotions and feelings of the people around them.
If you’ve ever been called “too sensitive” or get overly upset about situations your friends and family are going through, you may fall into this category.
Empaths often feel emotionally drained and spend more time focusing on others than themselves.

If you saw the water first
According to the test, you are definitely empathetic once you have seen the water first.
Most people are initially attracted to the woman and her reflection as the central point of the image.
Instead, you chose to focus on your surroundings – the water and waves around you.
If you saw the woman first
If you saw the woman first, as most people do, you are not empathetic.
You may think you’re an expert on how people think and feel, but you’re actually more of an expert on yourself.
Still, you’re neither selfish nor self-obsessed, you’ve simply spent a lot of time figuring yourself out and would like to share that with others.
If you saw the wall first
If your eyes were first drawn to the wall, you are not very empathetic and have difficulty understanding people.
You don’t necessarily dislike people, you’re just confused by the actions and feelings of others and wish you could figure it out.
However, there are people you care about and you will likely be a thoughtful friend and a good listener.
If you first saw the woman’s reflection
If you first saw the woman’s reflection in the water, you are very emotionally intelligent and probably quite empathetic.
They are good at finding out how other people feel and what they are thinking, even if they don’t let themselves be told.
People fascinate you and you can communicate very well with others.
