I maintain we do not need to directly experience something to understand it. Intuition allows for connection of seemingly unrelated events/feelings/etc. Inclination, predisposed...it means the same thing. Of course there are NFPs with crappy empathizing skills, just like there are totally illogical NTs. No one is born with much of any skill, but there can be predisposition to develop certain ones.
I don't relate to the being so affected by empathy that I involuntarily feel things all the time. Maybe I am less sensitive than some NFPs, in a bad way though. I'm not quite as sensitive to other people like NFPs are "supposed" to be.
