Question #40

I am convinced that empathy is relative, and is also usually guesswork on most people's part. You can never truly know what other people are thinking or wanting, but you can observe them closely and decide what you are going to do based on what you think they are feeling at that time. Some of us are better than others at it. I would bet that those who are motivated to either please others or thwart the will of others are the best at it.


Can you think of times you have done things perhaps not even consciously that you figured out would be likely to be bad for someone else but have no effect on you? I guess basically it would only be to mess with them?

Later, does it feel like a waste of time to have done so? Why or why not?

Question #155

If you had a super power that did not seem immediately useful, like being able to change people's accents from a distance, (say from Brooklyn to French,) what would it be and would you try to use it to fight crime, make money, or just a parlor trick?
