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.

    The weird thing about this is A lesser chose me but his ipps completely opposite of me completely in every way. The odd thing is that at first he loved the attention I got and by the end not so much but nothing compared to the mid ranger years later flat out told me that he had been very jealous of me.

    I know without question that I am a Magnet Codependent and that he is a Middle Lesser and for a Lesser he’s fairly charasmatic in a rough and blunt sort of Lesser way. He has no problem ensnaring women. So how did this happen ? Did my Codependency outweigh the magnet aspects that he would normally stay away from?

    I am a mirror empath and a magnet empath. What does that make me? lol

    1. Contagion says:


      In what way do you mirror? We all mirror, it is the intentions behind are behavior that is the difference.

    According to your Empath classification HG.
    I seem a cross between magnet and carrier.
    Definitely not a Super Empath or a Geyser.

  4. Windstorm says:

    Proud to be a magnet empath. Hope springs eternal!

    It does require vigilance not to be taken advantage of, but it is very affirming to provide this service to others. It brightens my day to be an emotional outlet to the needy. It is draining, but I am well equipped to recharge and aware of my limits.

  5. Presque Vu says:

    Interesting observations, still struggling to understand what relates to me because I am fiery and not always gracious. But I did flog a dead horse once, even bought a stronger whip – nothing worked. I shall be cautious in the horse I ride next!

    This has summed up my life! I now know a title to why so many people as far back as I can recall will, without knowing me, confide so deeply and entirely. Many of these people are in passing, few I’ve made friends with and even fewer I now consider family. When, which is very often, people just open up and confide, they walk away feeling better and are wearing a genuine smile. As for me, I’m tired, drained and must sleep. This also makes sense for why I worked in the medical field prior to the next career, which the husband sabotaged because of the attention that was not on him.

    The husband, well he is certainly in the post. He loves the center of attention and all eyes and attention must be on him at all times or will do anything to make sure the attention is drawn back to him. Envy & Jealousy = his raging outburst. How dare I help someone else. How dare I hug someone else with compassion. And yes, the isolation and confinement is very very real.

    On the darker spectrum of this I think that The Narcissist and The Empath almost need each other to survive. Narcissist seemingly needs the help and the Empath has a deep desire to help. Logically and for the empaths health and safety, must resist a narcissist because once the narcissist drains the empath of its fuel …. well …

    Thank you. This has helped greatly with self knowing.

      Cocky great post. I get it now too–the darker spectrum!

      1. Dronning says:

        Corky not cocky. Damn automatic spell check! My computer made an inaccurate insulting Freudian slip.

      2. Corky Marie says:

        No worries. Gave me a chuckle. I thought what a great aviname – a Cocky Empath ROFL.

        It’s a sad and sick relationship but now that we know, what are we to do about it? That is the question I struggle with.

    I feel there is a difference in me since I read this the first time. Future faking – I am very alert to it – hope – not much. I guess I am demagnetized:) so the learning has sunk in – more deeply that I had thought . It’s good to reread and see what triggered us and what triggers us now and the evolution in between !

  8. Cynthia says:

    Facinating, really. Your ability to so accurately disect and describe human modivations makes you somewhat “other worldly” . I particularly enjoyed your analisys and commentary on celebrity characters I found on your youtube channel and hope you might do more.

  9. amanda SNapchat says:

    this is me. One of my friends was just making fun of me because strangers always approach me and start randomly telling me about their life. He has seen how I always get approached in the bus, cafeterias.
    I also do tend to share motivating messages/ inspirational quotes. The greater narc i know now also tells me a lot, thank you for the motivation/inspiration .

    This post was helpful to understand that having too much hope can also be dangerous and used against you. I need to keep that in mind. Its also true that I am sometimes putting my own interests down just to help others.
    Good writing.

        Good HG.
        I am definitely a magnet. But today, I found myself confiding in a complete stranger for about 5 minutes until I caught myself. I said ‘I’m sorry, I’m talking too much’ and he replied no, keep talking. I stopped talking, smiled my sweet smile, a glance over my shoulder to see that he was watching me walk across the room and out the door.
        Have any of you other magnets experienced this sharing of your own crap to strangers?
        Empaths, do you think I engaged a narc or another magnet empath?

        I am really tired of being the person stranger tells their deepest secrets, their greatest love, witness murder, grief-stricken. Reading this made me almost believe in destiny.

    Oh my lord this is me !! I’m shocked .
    HG you are the Greatest !

      Indeed I am.
