What is empathy?

It is important to show empathy in a conversation because it shows other people you care about them. If they can sense that you care, they will share more information with you.

One way of showing empathy in a conversation is to:

Your friend tells you he/she has an important exam coming up. To show empathy, you could say:

You've been talking about your life for about five minutes, and you want to show more empathy towards your conversation partner. What can you say?

Showing more energy in a conversation helps the other person be more excited about what you are talking about. It also shows you are interested in the topic.

Using the word "________" energetically in a conversation with someone can get that person to give you more information.

Nelson Mandela said it was important to:

It's more important to __________ than to be interesting yourself.

Your friend says, "I got in trouble today, and my boss wants me in his office tomorrow morning."
What can you reply to show empathy?

Wednesday, June 13th 2018

    Yes buddy I wanna talk to you.

    Thursday, July 12th 2018

      Yes, buddy. We can talk but we need a medium where we can chat or talk anytime. Give me your any social profile link.

      Monday, July 16th 2018

        Wait let’s see, I don’t have Facebook but you can chat with me on the game, it is “Roblox” we can chat there, I think it is a good idea! XD

        Wednesday, July 18th 2018

          But I don’t even play this game :( Then How can we do that. If you have any new idea tell me about that.

          Friday, July 20th 2018

    We can make chat group, in any social media tool.

Wednesday, June 13th 2018

10/10, I got traumatize when the conversation went to the most annoying part, when you are having a conversation that he or she is talking down at you, making that gesture, as if… I am like a fvcking cockroach… I don’t want to have that kind of conversation, that’s why I am always anxious on how to keep up a healthy conversation. Thanks for the lesson. :)

Wednesday, June 13th 2018

James, we use “okay” in our language,Portuguese, a lot.Exactly like you have just explained. It’s not that I don’t like it, I just find it weird.
