The Magnet Empath


The Magnet Empath. This is an empathic individual who has certain magnetic tendencies which are layered onto their classification as an empath, super empath or co-dependent. The Magnet Empath is a person that people are instinctively and naturally drawn to. This person has an inner light which is easily recognised by certain people; those who are in need. The Magnet Empath might be sat on a tube train when the person next to them will find an irresistible urge to want to tell them that they are travelling to an important interview and they are feeling nervous. The Magnet Empath might be waiting in line to be served in a shop when the customer behind them begins to tell them about their concerns and worries, or where the Magnet Empath is sat watching the swans on a lake when a stranger will sit beside them and start to tell their life story. If you find that complete strangers have a tendency to share intimate and private details with you at the drop of a hat, that they feel a need to off load to you within moments of meeting you and confide in you about their hopes, fears and problems, then you have this magnetic quality.

You draw those in need to you. This is because you shine with this inner light which acts as a beacon of hope and that is what the Magnet Empath embodies; hope. Your empathic nature lights up rooms, illuminates the darkest of situations and brightens the dullest day and this is because you are a walking beacon of hope.

The Magnet Empath moves with confidence and purpose. There is no swagger or arrogance in the way that they enter a room, this person glides, they are serene and elegant. You will not witness any timid scurrying or rolling shoulder bluster, but somebody who is calm and assured. This individual has a clear sense of self – something which appeals to our kind – and this radiates wherever they are. Heads turn, eyes focus and people gravitate towards the appearance of the Magnet Empath. People’s faces light up, there is a lifting of the mood and people want to be seen with and to be next to the Magnet Empath.

Whereas our kind expects this kind of reaction from those around us and indeed seeks and demands it, the Magnet Empath accepts attention with grace and humility. They are not shy, they are not reserved, but there is none of the bluff and bragging that would accompany the engagement of a narcissist with those assembled. The Magnet Empath moves amongst people with a lightness of touch, an encouraging smile, a soft hand placed on the arm and hope shines from him or her.

The Magnet Empath will talk about themselves but in a manner which is encouraging and inspirational. Whilst our kind will also inspire it is done from a platform of declaring one’s own brilliance and you should be more like me. Those with the magnetic empathy will inspire by explaining that the listener is already empowered they just need to release it and to explain that if the magnetic empath can achieve certain aims then so can the listener. They emphasise the connectivity between them and those they interact with, demonstrating how essentially, since they are empathic individuals, they are all cut from the same cloth. The narcissist will demonstrate how we are a cut above and use jealousy and envy as motivational tools instead, demanding improvement, whipping individuals into action for fear of the consequences of not doing so, emphasising the difference between the narcissist and the listener and indicating, heavily, that the listener needs to shape up or ship out, go big or go home, if he or she is to achieve anything.

He or she is content for others to share the limelight and indeed positively encourages it which contrasts with the spotlight stealing behaviour of our kind, but this also acts as an attracting factor to our kind. We identify somebody who can capture the spotlight but does not wish to hog it, allowing us to camp on to it instead.

The Magnet Empath wants to harness potential, bring motivation through the provision of hope, the instilling of belief and the raising of optimism. The Magnet Empath is not one of practicality however. They will not assume the mantle of responsibility for an individual and will not get their hands excessively dirty on behalf of another but rather their aim is to cause those around them to feel better in themselves through their own innate abilities, to tap into as yet unharnessed skills and attributes. This person provides panache and style, bringing hope through words, rather than through actions, a person who can influence in a positive manner the lives of many. Whereas the Carrier Empath is a rugged and practical individual and tends to focus on assisting only a few people, sometimes often only one – usually our kind – the Magnet Empath can affect many people at once with their messages of hope and inspiration.

This individual always believes in hope. This is what drives them and causes them to provide extensive fuel generated by this hope. They hope that love can conquer all and therefore are significant love devotees. They refuse to give up, often flogging a dead horse, endeavouring to overcome the insurmountable. This hope often blinds those with magnetic tendencies to the reality of a situation and causes them to engage in courses of action which invariably result in harm to the empathic person. Blind hope will take them down a path which will be exploited by our kind.

Excellent fuel is generated by this gracious individual, their words inspiring, uplifting, praising and complimenting. They are content to say all of these words and expect little or nothing in return, save that the listener grasps hope and secures growth and achievement. The Magnet Empath is also easily led by false exhibitions of hope, the slightest glimmer is something that they will latch on to in the expectation of improvement and seeing changes. Where the narcissist gives this person cause to hope, it will cause the individual to remain in the grasp of the narcissist as they dangle hope before them to keep them bound.

Often this person need not say anything. Their composure and general demeanour marks them out as who they are, which means that many people engage with them as strangers, unaware that sub-consciously they are drawn to the Magnet Empath. These people are sought after as inspirational speakers, people who present prizes, open new buildings, support charitable trusts and such like and their popularity in this regard and the desire of people who just want to reach out and be touched by the Magnet Empath means that they will often find themselves pulled in many directions and spread thin. This impacts on their energy levels as they feel unable to say no to anybody, not wanting to extinguish the hope that they have begun to cultivate. Instead the Magnet Empath will often take on many different obligations and functions for a wide variety of people with not only consequences for their own ability to deliver but their interaction with our kind when we have ensnared a Magnet Empath.

The Lesser Narcissist tend not to choose those with strong magnetic tendencies. This is because the jealous nature of the narcissist as a whole, but especially the less capable Lesser, means that they fear being overshadowed far too quickly and their resentment would be palpable notwithstanding their seduction. The Lesser’s low control threshold would result in him or her being unable to keep their fury under control during seduction and thus the seduction would fail. Accordingly, it is not attempted. Furthermore, the Lesser will hate the attention that this individual would receive with the upshot that the Lesser would be ignored and overlooked. Unable to compete, the Lesser would be repeatedly wounded and notwithstanding the fuel that comes from the Magnet Empath, this would not be enough. Thus it is unusual to find a Lesser who has ensnared such a person.

The Mid-Ranger likes and wants those empaths with magnetic qualities as they encompass those attributes – charisma, likeability, people skills – which the Mid Ranger believes that he or she has and wishes to project to the world at large. Those with magnetic tendencies prove to be a double-edged sword however. The Mid Ranger will struggle to resist, naturally being drawn to this person for who they are because they are prime material for the narcissist, but find themselves awash with jealousy and envy once devaluation begins. During seduction, these traits can be kept in check and the Mid Ranger will appropriate the benign traits of the Magnet Empath for his own use, but once devaluation commences, he becomes coated in envy which will manifest as prolonged and repeated sulking silent treatments.

The Greater Narcissist revels in the Magnet Empath. Possessing similar levels of charm and magnetism, the Greater finds mirroring extremely easy in order to attract this type of empath. The Magnet Empath’s popularity is also appealing to the Greater who basks in the reflected glory of other people’s enthusiasm, praises the Greater for being with such a wonderful person and naturally soaks up the motivating and complimentary words of the Magnet Empath towards him or her. The Greater regards their acquisition as one which actually saves the Greater some work by attracting additional appliances which the Greater will draw fuel from, hijack as his own appliances and then turn against the Magnet Empath when the smearing commences during devaluation.

The Magnet Empath is a popular person with many empathic attributes, their energy level is not as great as other kinds since they engage more in words than actions, but that is not to say they do not act, just not to the same degree as other types of empath. They also have many demands on their time and attention which ultimately will clash with the desires of our kind, resulting in conflict and control. This will not only hurt this type of empath but result in them feeling torn since they feel obliged to assist others, not just the narcissist and this will result in the narcissist wishing to regulate those behaviours and isolate the Magnet Empath. Their capacity to draw people to them in whatever circumstance, even when not actively doing so, will irk the narcissist considerably during devaluation and provide him or her with the grounds for attack and triangulation.

An excellent fuel provider, both in themselves and the ability to bring others to the narcissist’s table and  the Magnet Empath is someone who hangs in there, always strung along by hope, which is at the centre of the magnet’s being,usually to their ultimate detriment during devaluation and also in terms of susceptibility to post discard/post escape hovering.

    My X Psychopath husband LOVED this. He would answer my phone and tell people I had just met that they didn’t really have a connection with me, it’s just my personality, he would pass on the message anyway. He loved the people I attracted. I stood back and he jumped in and used them all for supply. They would try to move away from him and back to me. I could not stand being around crowds for this reason, people cornering me and telling me their life story and he insisted on going to those exact crowded places so he could poach strangers. What a brilliant description. The older, wiser I get, the more i am able to keep up boundaries and not take on these strangers and their stories.

    Continued… We are the healers as well… I have changed laws using my gifts! I have healed years of trauma! You do not have to take on their crap!

    I can now see that I was a magnet-codependent empath who is becoming a magnet-super empath (after repeating the pattern one too many times and developing so much awareness and self esteem that I can’t live in denial anymore). Nowadays, I’m a terrible victim but narcs are still drawn to me in a way and I couldn’t quite figure out why. Considering my impeccable boundaries and unwillingness (inability) to play victim, I’m just too much of a pain in the ass for them. I was making this into some kind of personal shortcoming, as usual, but now I see how it’s my inherent and even increasing value that’s making me attractive. Especially considering I’m unconquerable. That must be psychopath candy. They just look so damn confused when they realize I’m not the prey they hoped I would be. This is the best justice I could hope for! Thanks for helping me see it. Cheers.

      What does magnetic super empath look like?

      1. HG Tudor says:

        Nobody knows, they are always hidden beneath pieces of metal.

    2. The Wizard says:

      I am in the middle of having “magnetically” attracted fears through an online poem I wrote. Suggesting I would “take fears” and bring them into the light for God to judge! The whole community was “hacking” me! So I decided to let them see what I saw and felt! They are learning! Own your gifts and cherish them! They are divine! Never forget, you are in charge of whatever “illusion” you create! The “illusions” other people create are reflections of their own “crap”. You do not have to prove a thing! It all unfolds naturally! Never fear… “their fears” motivate them…stick to being motivated by loving and always love yourself first! We are their “prize” and trust in the knowing you are coveted! Trust in your family and trust in your gifts! We are “Stars” we are celebrities! Trust in the knowing!

  4. T says:

    Greetings, HG! Wow! This sounds a lot like me!❤️

  5. MLA - Clarece says:

    From reading this description, no doubt this type of individual would be a Greater’s polar opposite. I would think you would view this person more as someone to conquer with all of those virtuous traits to absorb into your construct.

    Reblogged this on Random Musings.

  7. Victory says:

    Someone had just spilled their life story to me, drug addiction, legal troubles & thanked me for listening in less than 2 minutes at a gas station the morning I read this. It happens a lot. I just learned why. I must remember it’s a strength not a weakness.

  8. This is me !! Was me !! I barely recognise myself now. Empathy is reserved for the select few who are worthy, though I guess I still fake it for those who aren’t.

    You’re right about him finding this hard in discard the fact that others are still drawn to me.

    Let the triangulations continue 😘

  9. Hope says:

    Ahhhh, Magnet Empath driven by hope. I identify.
    Brilliant article.

    HG. This isn’t me. I did like the informative read. Knowledge enhanced.

  11. Tag…I’m it!

  12. Sarah says:

    I love this article and very well written, as always. May I reblog this?

    1. HG Tudor says:

      With appropriate credit of course.

      1. Sarah says:

        As I have never done this before, I would just hit the reblog button correct? Is there any bio or something additional you want me to add?

        1. HG Tudor says:

          I think you have it covered Sarah.

    I thought all empaths were magnetic in this way? I’ve always been like this.
    I often have complete strangers and people I barely know, approach me telling me their life stories, personal problems, health problems etc.
    It can be tiresome, which causes me to avoid people at times to recharge.

    My ex stated a few times that he could see the light within me, that I glowed and he and others could see it. That it was a gift from God. He knew people often came to me for help.

    A few weeks ago a new account executive whom I have never met, came to the office, where I work, to introduce himself.
    Within ten minutes he was reading my energy, telling me he knew that strangers and people I didn’t know, would often open up to me about their problems.
    His energy was intense. He read me like a book, telling me a few other true things about myself.
    I’m assuming he was also an empath or perhaps a narcissist lol? I thought by ex N was an empath at first.
    Looking back, I believe telling my ex briefly about this, and asking if he ever felt intense energy from strangers, triggered the latest silent treatment.
    He asked if it was an attractive energy like we had, which I assured him it wasn’t, just a very unusual encounter.

  14. I see some attributes in each of these empathic blog postings…

    Both of my exN’s did hate the fact that strangers felt comfortable enough to talk to me… the ex husband would say that I am going to get killed by one of these strangers and the exN would get jealous in two ways – why don’t they talk to him like that, he’s the caring one OR if it were a guy, I must have been flirting to gain his attention.
    I don’t know what I am. I am ME or as I like to say.. I AM Dragoncreeper! 🙂 😛

    Really I just attributed it to being raised in Texas. You smile, you say hi or wave and you treat everyone with that good ol’ southern hospitality!

    1. Snow White says:

      I relate DC. I just thing I’m saying “Hi” or making eye contact to be nice because that is normal and how I was raised.
      My ex was the one who used to tell me to avoid eye contact in the gym because it encouraged people. I didn’t understand because I didn’t want anything in return except a “Hi” back.
      That still is a struggle for me 6 months out. I don’t want anyone looking at me or to make small talk. I wonder what they want from me now. I wish I wasn’t like this.

      1. Im still that way as well… I will, from time to time, make eye contact and smile but overall I avoid it. Alcohol sure fixes that though, lol.

  15. Darkness Falls Again says:

    Now that locker would be a treasure to find, I could spend hours just immerse in your writings HG. I believe not only did my heart skip a beat yet I just stopped breathing for a moment with that thought.
    I am curious as to where you would catergorize me, yet I am sure it will be revealed.

  16. Jane Hall says:

    Sounds similar to me. I used to be such a sucker for a sob story. And I believed in true love and all that.

    Not any more. No.

    Hubby – who abused my trust and abused me for too long – made me into a tough person. Sometime she says “I wish you were that person again” Haha….no way.

  17. HG,
    Could it be? Is it she? Or do I get strung along with the hope of a judgement from you? Yes, I am asking you politely to judge. Give it to me hard if need be or All azure hearts and flowers like….*bats eyelashes *

    1. Indy says:

      I love you ABB 🙂

  18. Darkness Falls Again says:

    I see many traits here, looking forward to what else you have HG.

    1. HG Tudor says:

      There is plenty in the locker DFA.

  19. Snow White says:

    That summed me up perfectly HG. Great article. I now know where I fit.
    Not sure how many more you have to write about, but let me know if you agree.

    It’s funny, I just gave a speech at an autism fundraiser and I keep thinking that I would love to explore my opportunities to speak about my narcissist experience. I have to get the crying under control first. Lol

    1. HG Tudor says:

      I shall reserve judgement SW until all of the empathic tendency articles have seen the dark of day.

      1. Snow White says:

        Are you writing a book about all these empaths? How many are there?
        I like seeing how the different empaths and the different types of narcs are drawn to each other. It’s fascinating.

        I will be waiting for them and your judgement Sir.

        1. HG Tudor says:

          Yes I am. You shall have to wait and see dear SW. Yes the dynamic is fascinating, I agree, I have spent years observing it.

  20. The Punisher says:

    When I met the last one, the first thing he said to me was how magnetic it felt when he saw my picture. This would come up several more times in the future. On point.

  21. Reblogged this on NarcMagNet69x96.

  22. AH OH says:

    I see some traits in this one.
    I can get anyone to tell me their life story. Happens more than not.

    I tell very few bits and pieces. I never tell it all to one person.
