Do you think there's a correlation between having empathy and a strong sense of self-accountability?
I was listening to someone today. I’ve always known this guy has very little empathy- his son is exactly the same way. They’re not bad people, just don’t relate to others on an emotional level. They both also have a very low sense of responsibility for their own actions. It’s easy for them to see how others “caused” them to behave a certain way.
That got me thinking about my highly empathetic friends and realized that they all also had a heightened sense of being responsible for their own actions. Umm…
Coincidence or correlation? What do you think?
