Can anyone be truly empathetic?


Recently I read a college textbook on communication. There was a section explaining how some people are sympathetic and few are empathetic. I was curious if a human being can possess the ability to really put themselves in another persons situation and react accordingly.

    Great answer! I agree mostly. I believe it is impossible to fully put yourself in another persons situation but I think most "sensitive" people can get pretty close. I grew up in a very small community so I concur that empathy is simpler that way.
