Diary #53 Radical vs Practical Empathy

Radical empathy is knowing that if I were in that person’s shoes, having had exactly the same life leading up to this moment and having the same DNA, I would be acting exactly the same.

Practical empathy is simply considering it.  In a subtle way it increases the feeling of connection.  This can be helpful if I want to develop trust in a negotiation, or simply be less p***ed off with someone.
