    Anyone uses their empathy to get other people's perspective on things? I do, and it's very enlightening. Like I put myself in a shoes of a man who catcalls someone and they do that because they have the "power" to do so. I like doing this but I don't often do it.

    Anyone?

    Yeah, I use empathy to predict what people are likely to do or to understand their motivations.

    Some people are saying that empathy is bad.

    Okay, I will say no to wrongbots, but why did you invent them? Are you a mad scientist?

    Is that getting their perspective through empathy or is that merely analysing their behaviour? I doubt, if you asked, they would say that they catcall because they 'have the "power" to.' More likely, it would be that they find the woman (presumably) attractive. Maybe it's also a male bonding thing if it were, say, construction workers. It could also represent a fear of rejection in that the rejection can be attributed to the approach rather than the man (presumably) making it.

    Catcalling is very unwelcome to women. I don't like being catcalled at all
