This is the best video I have ever seen describe the characteristics of someone who is empathetic.

It also does a great job describing the differences between sympathy and empathy, which are often confused.

Time to close this one and move on to other questions.

Thank you, and a hearty welcome to P&R, ('other' TA's).

[An aside: As I close this out, I cannot help but notice you already have a single point this month, when I was tempted to claim to be providing you with your first ones for the new month. Do please consider helping to derive comments for other considerations.]

Thank you as well for helping me uncover other areas to explore (like emotions & sympathy & pity...)
