Yes, men can be naturally empathetic. But like a lot of other findings in the field of gender-specific medicine, men may express these traits differently than women do.
...Empathy can change the world. Many people equate empathy with everyday kindness, support, and emotional sensitivity. But according to empathy expert Roman Krznaric, author of Empathy: A Handbook for Revolution, “Empathy is an ideal that has the power both to transform our own lives and to bring about fundamental social change. Empathy can create a revolution. Not one of those old-fashioned revolutions based on new laws, institutions or governments, but something much more radical: a revolution of human relationships.”
