Tarot not for Strong Empaths?

So I've gotten advice from people in my life, and I'm wanting to get a collective opinion on the subject. I was at a (real) occult shop in my hometown last week, and the shopkeep (hehe I love that word) walked over to me and gently removed the deck from my hand. I was a little peeved, to say the least. He said that tarot isn't for strong empaths. I was surprised, as not many people save for family have ever been able to tell (it runs in the family, thanks ma), but I was confused. The gentleman laughed, called me a wild empath, and tried to tell me that while I am extremely powerful, I am but wild and not accustomed to my worth. While this is true, I can't control it nor things I am able to do, I was a bit upset. Why would empathy make for a bad tarot reading? I mean, I'm not out to pretend to be something I'm not, I'm not going to read tarot for money or anything of that sort. I just wanted to get to know that sort of thing a bit better, you know?

I suppose, if anyone has any advice it would be greatly appreciated. I'm still going to purchase a deck and work with my Teacher in my Order, but I'm curious to know what you all think about what this shopkeep (man I love that word!) had said to/about me.
