To "empathize" with someone means to
"understand and share the feelings of another" (Oxford dictionary).
In science fiction, an "empath" is
"a person with the paranormal ability to perceive the mental or emotional state of another individual." (Oxford dictionary)
Is there a word to describe the "opposite" (behaviour in nature, not antonym) of an "empath" - someone who can communicate in such a manner that it is very easy to empathize with them because you can easily understand or recognize the feelings behind what they are saying?
As pointed out above, an "empath" has the ability to perceive the mental or emotional state of another individual. I am seeking a word (if it exists) that describes the ability to communicate in such a manner as to "create a mental or emotional state" - an emotional connect - to make others more easily relate and empathise with them. (Something that most story tellers do effectively).
(Some commenter thinks my question is about Sci Fi. No, I am just looking for a word to describe something in plain English. But it doesn't matter if it is an uncommon and rare word from old English or even a modern slang).
