Ways of Demonstrating Empathy

When you demonstrate good levels of empathy, you’re able to read other people’s emotions, their moods and interpret their nonverbal signals quite accurately. You have respect. So you’re able to relate well to people from a variety of diverse backgrounds. This is because you’re open minded enough to try and understand things from their perspective. From their viewpoint. You ask appropriate questions and listen, listening attentively to their answers. By listening, you will gain more information and more detail that you need in order to understand their viewpoints and their perspective, particularly when they’re very different from your own. You don’t have to agree with somebody differences in opinion. You’re just trying to understand it. You’re also able to understand the reason for their actions, not only how they’re reacting, but why they react in the way that they do.
