[Music] the three strands of empathy the concept of empathy can be divided into three types it has three identifiable strands first of all there is the idea of cognitive empathy whereby one can understand the point of view of another person recognize and understand what the emotions of another person mean and what the acceptable response should be i am able to understand another person's
00:38
point of view but i won't accede to it unless of course i see some interior gain to be obtained from expressing that i understand and accede to that point of view even where i explain that i understand it i still am unlikely to accept it because to do so would be to give control to the other person and that can never happen of course empathic individuals are experts at understanding another person's point of view they can operate with cognitive empathy
01:11
which sits within their emotional empathy however the application of cognitive empathy by an empath is more expansive than its use by a narcissist the cognitive empathy combines with the emotional empathy so that the empathic individual goes further they will exhibit patience to allow the other person's point of view to be articulated they will ask questions to draw out this
01:42
view and they will apply it to their own situation and experiences empathic individuals want to understand the other person's point of view they not only give it a platform to begin with but they also allow it to be aired expanded and applied the ability to do this bleeds into the empathic traits of patients needing to understand being a truth seeker compassion honesty decency that need to understand and the ability
02:18
to see another person's point of view also means that the empathic individual is far more susceptible to the word salads the circular conversations the lies the half-truths that our kind deal in the empathic individual endures these manipulations and others as they will try to wade through the quagmire in order to flex their empathy so that they understand the narcissist point of view of course our point of view operates from a completely different perspective and therefore until such people realize that that is
02:52
the case they have no hope of actually achieving it they find themselves repeatedly frustrated and able to understand why the narcissist just can't see the can't see what is happening the greater narcissists and the ultra have substantial cognitive empathy we understand the other person's point of view and emotions we also know how we are expected to respond so that we are able to mimic the external indicators of those emotions which we do not possess such as joy happiness
03:23
sadness and thus we fit in with those around us with considerable ease if you want to understand more about this see the imitation game sometimes there is the very slight discernable delay as we rapidly recall what the appropriate response is and then ensure we arrange our features language tone and body language to match the emotion that we wish to convey but this is all entirely cognitive we do not feel these emotions we do not operate from a place of feeling
03:55
mid-range narcissists have good to very good cognitive empathy dependent on the relevant subschool and they follow a similar path to that of the greater narcissist or ultra but they may have certain responses missing and there will be more of a delay before the mimicked emotion is displayed occasionally the mid-range narcissist will get it wrong and provide a response which is somewhat out of sync to what is required or can come across as stiff and robotic since they don't have the practice ease of the greater
04:26
ultra in mimicking the acceptable response lesser narcissists don't have cognitive empathy at all and therefore you'll be faced with someone staring at you as they are unable to comprehend what they should be doing this coupled with their lack of awareness means they often have no idea that there's something wrong and similarly have no idea of what the appropriate response ought to be secondly there is empathy concern or emotional empathy whereby an individual is able to feel the emotional state of
05:03
another person feel a response in reaction to that feel a need to address that emotional state and therefore show the appropriate concern for the individual invariably through actions as opposed to solely through words in all schools of narcissism we have no capacity whatsoever for emotional empathy some of us have cognitive empathy lessons do not we feel nothing for anybody else with regard
05:34
to sadness concern joy happiness there is simply nothing there our cognitive empathy where applicable enables us to recognize something is wrong what the response of the individual means anger hurt upset frustration etc and therefore we can should we deem it in our interests calculated where greater or ultra or instinctively for the mid-range narcissists we then respond in a particular way
06:06
in order to assert control draw fuel gain character traits and residual benefits but we don't feel anything there is no emotional response from us to your pain to your joy to your hurt we do not share your joy we do not feel the need to comfort you because of your pain we understand that this could be done if it benefits us we do not feel concern in our chests for your misfortune
06:36
we merely observe and intellectualize the response where appropriate we feel nothing unsurprisingly the empathic individual has large amounts of emotional empathy and has all the requisite elements of this particular strand of empathy intact and in intense quantities the empathic individual is able to recognize the emotional state of another with considerable ease even in circumstances where that individual is trying to mask it
07:11
they absolutely feel and recognize the need to do something when they see somebody else's emotional reaction this compulsion is almost irresistible for the empathic individual and they are also fully acquainted with what they should do by way of response they do it instinctively they feel it they don't have to think about it they will share in the joy congratulate when someone is happy through good news console when someone is miserable and hold them when they are heartbroken i have witnessed this many times and it still fascinates me
07:42
that there is this ability to feel for another individual it is not something that i would ever want but i naturally rely upon its existence because it is the empath that becomes bound to us the easiest easiest to ensnare and the best provider of the prime aims because of the existence of emotional empathy the empathic individual of course is no different with our kind
08:12
and see that our emotional response albeit from a limited selection then feels the need to address it and also knows how to address it thus when we discharge our fury our hatred our envy and our antipathy the empathic individual owing to this emotional empathy this concern empathy is always galvanized into action and will rarely shirk the challenge and they will want to address the issue often at considerable cost to themselves
08:43
finally there comes the concept of the emotional contagion this is a deep seated and one may even regard it in a sense as a spiritual element of the empathic individual this is not just about understanding a point of view or recognizing an emotional need or feeling the response but it is about feeling the emotion in the way that somebody else does thus if a friend is upset over the death of a parent
09:15
the empathic individual is contaminated by this grief and experiences the same emotions as if they were grieving themselves this not only means that they will fountain with fuel which of course our kind will exploit but they are powered into recognizing the need for doing something and then actioning this and to an extent afforded even greater than would be by cognitive empathy or emotional
09:45
empathy the emotional contagion exists in nearly all empathic individuals but is far more intense in certain people indeed its intensity can even go beyond proximate to the person experiencing the emotion the individual who experiences his emotional contagion takes on the feelings of others as if they were their own they become burdened by them they become weighed down
10:16
by them they feel a need to cleanse they feel the emotions of places naturally this is not something that a narcissist ever experiences but those that have the contagion element with regard to the type of empath that they are will experience this in differing degrees the contagion aspect is a visceral deep-seated acquisition of the feelings of others
10:48
taking them on experience them for themselves feeling weighted down by them feeling burdened often needing to seek solace and recluse to allow those emotions and feelings to be lifted from them i have heard many of those that i've dealt with talk about such experiences these individuals will read a moving will read a morning newspaper seeing a moving
11:25
article about the plight of an orphan and they feel that despair as well it is an immensely powerful part of their empathy and causes the empathic individual to have to respond to it they feel the positive and negative feelings of the energy of others sometimes apparently even when distant and this feels uplifting possibly overpowering or draining and indeed burdensome those with the heightened majority element of the emotional contagion feel a deep-seated connection they
12:01
experience the presence of others and find it necessary at times to remain away from people in order to divest themselves of the deleterious effects of being able to feel so much we have no such emotional contagion it is completely absent therefore we have nothing which might cause us to feel something so that we act upon it there is nothing there the plight of the orphan is not felt by us and we are utterly unmoved the fear of the heroine on television is regarded with annoyance
12:36
since our primary source seems more concerned about that person than ours the only time that we regard this emotional contagion is any use is when it serves our purposes when the empathic individual directs their fuel towards us because of this emotional contagion we do not have this contagion all narcissists are absent emotional empathy some narcissists have cognitive empathy empaths operate through emotional
13:08
empathy within which they experience cognitive empathy but a more deep-seated and expansive version than that occasion by narcissists and some empaths have the third strand which is the emotional contagion i'm hd tudor thank you for listening
