My empathy score is 84 out of 110, indicating a high level of empathy in general. How about yours?
If you are interested in understanding your general level of empathy towards others, why don’t you take the empathy quiz provided by the Greater Good magazine through Berkley University / California.
22 questions to measure your level of empathy; 6 questions for the research team to understand how empathy relates to factors like gender, age or birth order.
In order to further improve my empathy level, the report advises me to read fiction. Reading a book or watching a film “allows us to temporarily step out of our own lives and fully immerse ourselves in another person’s experience. Indeed, research suggests that fiction readers are better attuned to the social and emotional lives of others.”
