Question is, are you asking me to write a hub on whether I consider myself to be an empathetic person, or whether the hub should be about how anyone might (or might not) consider themselves to be empathetic?
I'm going to assume that you meant the first option:
Am I empathetic? So-so. I'm certainly able to put myself into somebody else's shoes and see why they might act in a certain manner.
Whether I sympathise with that action is, of course, another matter. I'm very short tempered, so, while I can appreciate another person's point of view, I might react to that point of view very badly.
When it comes to animals, I'm much more sympthetic. I've never met an animal I didn't like (and that includes snakes) and so, I tend to be far more patient with animals than I am with people.
Hope this answers your question!
