No, I try to absorb their pain. I will suffer it for them if it relieves theirs, if I care for them. Sorry other dudes.

@Araphel Do you enjoy other’s pain.

Only in video games , but I feel psychotic sometimes when I run over people from Grand Theft Auto.

Depends on the other person. I would probably giggle while Putin had open heart surgery without a anesthetic.

No. Even people who I personally deem evil (in my own sense of the word – I’m not religious.) They usually just make me sad. Plus, I have OCD, so… I strongly filter anything gory. :P

No, it bothers me when others suffer.

No. If I did enjoy other people’s pain there would be something wrong with me. I hate to see people suffering any form of hurt.

The ones who hurt me, yes. Random people, no.

No, but the music of others sometimes brings suffering to my ears, i’m talking to you Celine fucking Dion.

I do but, not everyone.

(@ucme indeed, that’s how I read the question at first. ...and seconding the opinion about Ms. Dion’s ouput)

No. That would indicate a lack of empathy at best or sociopathic tendencies at worst.

I don’t want to be that person.

Buttonstc's avatar

No. I am not a sadist.

UnholyHunger's avatar

No — I enjoy watching others in a state of tremendous hunger, knowing they can never eat me.
