    A LITTLE BIT OF EMPATHY WILL TAKE YOU A LONG WAY IN BUSINESS When I was small and got into conflicts with someone at school my mother used to say: "put yourself in the other person’s shoes."

When I first heard the word empathy after I started my business communication class‚ I did not understand what it actually meant

    Empathy What is empathy? In the textbook‚ empathy is defined as “the ability to project oneself into another person’s point of view‚ so as to experience the other’s thoughts and feelings” (Adler‚ Rodman & Sevigny‚ 2011).

Anna Smajdor et al. found flaws in affective empathy when faced with the need of physician objectivism‚ but Sung Soo Kim et al. saw the possibilities of physician affection on patient outcomes.

    Empathy and Sympathy Empathy is the ability to re-create another person’s perspective‚ or trying to get a sense of that person with that problem and with those emotions. While empathy and sympathy are two closely related concepts‚ I believe that the slight difference between them can be found in the idea of “identification”.

Personally I don’t think empathy is measureable by scientific assessment‚ rather empathy should be viewed as a means of moral virtue. A large part of empathy is respect; disagreeing with someone’s choice or
