I took the empathy quiz, and it was concluded that I have pretty decent empathy for those around me. I scored around 3-4 for every question, which made me realize I’m pretty attuned to the people around me. I will try to make them as comfortable as possible when in a conversation and not judge them from what I see. I find it pretty easy to empathize in any situation, usually I give people the benefit of the doubt for mostly anything. I pretty sensitive to the emotions around me because I feel like people need someone to try and understand them. Some situations I would find difficult to empathize others is when maybe they are going to hurt someone, or have hurt me personally more than once. For example, if they give me a reason as to why they hurt someone emotionally, it makes it difficult for me to have empathize and try to understand their reason because they still hurt someone. Same would go for someone who has done the same to me, but just because it makes it difficult it does not mean that I hold a grudge.
