YOU ARE EMPATHY SUPERHEROES BRAINY, FEELY AND FLEXY!
Your strengths are distributed equally between the different types of empathy. You are quick to detect other people’s emotions, and your superheart carries the joys and sorrows of others. You show empathy also with your actions. Use your strengths boldly and act for a more empathic world!
With cognitive empathy, you observe other people’s emotions. You understand their experiences, values and motives.
With emotional empathy, you experience other people’s emotions genuinely, strongly and immediately. It is easy for you to be happy and sad with others. Your friends can count on your support when they need it.
In compassionate empathy, understanding others leads to actions that take them into consideration. You often help other people or change your behaviour for their benefit.
Emphatic thinking also includes widening your circle of empathy. It’s often easiest to empathize with people similar and close to us. People who are different from us, or are far away, also need our empathy.
EMPATHY INTO ACTION!
Many of us feel empathy often, but we don’t always dare to say it out loud. It is important that our empathic feelings also lead to actions. Here are some small but remarkable ways to put empathy into action:
