I have had people that have gotten to know the real me describe me as "a monster" and/or has having "no empathy". Do you think someone having no empathy makes them a) evil? Can it also mean you are just ignorant? Both? What is your take on a "lack of empathy"? We all lack empathy to some extent, and I right?
There are definitely degrees to empathy and how extreme you take it. But mostly important when it comes to human interaction. Lacking empathy for people has its degrees but lacking it, would fefinately make you evil. If you cant identify with another persons position when you do or say things to them it opens the door to people not liking you.
A lot of serial killers and those who commit school shooting generally lack empathy for human life so it's easy for them to justify causing harm to others in their minds.
A lot of brutal people lack empathy but since you ask I would have to assume you at least have some empathy or you wouldnt even bother asking, you simplely wouldnt care.
