Two Different types of Empathy

Empathy is a ability to sence other people's feelings. Scientist researched on how to show empathy. By showing empathy is helping people if they feel lonely.

People identify that scenting is a good way because someone could act enthusiasm but in the inside they feel sad and insecure.

Today researches talk about two different types of empathy. The first type is affective empathy. Affective empathy means when someone feels sad. But when you see them sad you respond in your own way by go and help them or cheer them up.

Type two empathy which is cognitive. Cognitive means understating other peoples feelings and thoughts

  1. Hi Sebastian

    My name is Ramsey and I am a student in EDM 510 at the University of South Alabama in the United States. I read your post on Empathy and your post on the News Report. I like the way you explained the two types of empathy and your explanations show that you have done your research. I am sorry to hear about the news report although your explanation of what happened was very well written. Do you have empathy for Joey King's or Rahi Hohua's families? I understand if you do. I learned more about empathy today because of your post. Great work Sebastian!
