    my empathy is usually me either feeling another persons emotions somehow unintentionally. or i can in someway see their viewpoint and generally where they are coming from. it isn't hard for me to grasp where someone is coming from. how i show this differs whether its sympathy, compassion or what have you. but i always can see their viewpoints and its sometimes a curse, I'm incredibly empathetic.

    Heh, yeah that has happened but very rarely. I do understand people's feelings most of the time but there is that small population of people whom are only interested in making pity stories for themselves just to get attention and sympathy, not empathy. I typically deny them of any feelings. But for the remainder of the 99% of people, I will empathize rather quickly.

    I have to say I usually see Fe as sympathetic and Fi as empathetic.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Piglet was comforted by this.
