"hyper-empathy" also extends to things like, inanimate objects, places and spaces, tools, etc.
like you assign personalities and even souls to them.
i know that i feel like plushies have souls and abhor mistreating them at all.
@AmyZenunim Hyper empathy can combine with difficulty reading people to create a real hellish experience. I feel way too much empathy for what I think people around me are feeling but also I'm usually wrong. Just really strong but incorrect empathy. It sucks.
@AmyZenunim i had to tell my coworkers recently ‘just because i have headphones on doesn’t mean i’m uninterruptible, i listen to music while working basically constantly’
@AmyZenunim one of my BIIIIIG ASD traits that's writ large across my mind is hyperempathy. It actually means I like hugging, because skin contact helps with making hyperempathy more steady and less erratic.
