You have a low level of empathy

You find it hard to communicate with other people and feel insecure in a big company. For you, starting a conversation is a real challenge. Actions driven by emotions appear to you illogical and useless. You're all about rationality, accuracy, and logic. You have few friends. Your friends are smart people with high professional skills. However, you don't care about their sensitivity and sincerity. You achieve the best results by working alone and not in a team. 

You have a medium level of empathy

Most people have a medium empathy level. While you aren't one of those people with thick skin, you can't be considered an oversensitive person either. You judge others relying on their actions rather than your personal impressions and emotions. You can control your feelings most of the time. Sometimes, you experience difficulties building interpersonal relationships because you lack the empathy to "see through" the other person. Nonetheless, it's not a big obstacle for you. 

You have a high level of empathy

You're a kind, generous, and sincere person. You forgive easily. You love getting to know people and helping them. You don't have problems forging new relationships. We bet children love to spend time with you. When making decisions and resolving conflicts, you're guided by feelings. You prefer teamwork over individual endeavours. At the same time, you constantly need approval from others. Plus, you're frustrated easily. 

You have a very high level of empathy

You seem to know what other people are feeling by simply looking at them. This is why you find it emotionally hard to talk with unhappy or angry people. People trust you with their secrets and often seek your advice. You're very sensitive and vulnerable. Sometimes, your emotions and thoughts keep you awake at night. You need emotional support all the time. Maybe you should see a specialist to make sure that your high level of empathy doesn't affect your mental health.
