I may have known this intuitively, but I looked this up very recently
There are 3 types of empathy: cognitive empathy, emotional empathy, and compassionate empathy
And just like everything else they have “down” sides, which I will not speak of. If you want to know, look it up yourself 😀
Cognitive empathy is simple enough; knowing – recognizing another’s predicament.
Emotional empathy I think too is straight forward; actually feeling another person’s response to a situation
Compassionate empathy is the person that takes the next step. Either sparked by cognitive or emotional empathy, they move to help the person(s) with a need
That would be me 😀
Rapport: The key to good rapport is knowing both sides of a relationship recognize and respect each other’s wants, needs, and desires. I say so 😀
What do you want? What do you need? What do you desire?
