America ranks in top 10 in empathy

#1  Postby the_5th_ape » Oct 16, 2016 7:00 am

A first-of-its-kind study that ranks nations by empathy puts the United States at No. 7, behind countries ranging from Peru to Korea to Saudi Arabia. While a top 10 finish isn't bad, the lead author of the study notes that the psychological states of Americans have been changing in recent decades -- leading to a larger focus on the individual and less on others.

Is it just me or did that article not actually define empathy once in the whole article or mention what they actually measured?

I'd be a lot more empathetic if most people weren't such whining bitches.
