Jung’s Model of the Psyche

Jung’s Model of the Psyche | Emotions | Scoop.it
Just as the ego worked to be more and to have more, focusing on the external and taking the self farther and farther from the rest of the psyche, so the Self strives to alter this one-sidedness.

The Science of Empathy: Mirror Neurons

The Science of Empathy: Mirror Neurons | Emotions | Scoop.it
“We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects.” -Herman Melville Connection.

 

“empathy,” the simple innate ability to “know what it’s like,” to actually understand. But what is it really? How does it work, and where does it come from?

 

The biological basis for empathy lies, like all emotions, in the brain. It might be more appropriate to substitute “synaptic” in lieu of “sympathetic” in Melville’s aforementioned quote, as empathy goes all the way down to the molecular level, generated by special brain cells nicknamed mirror neurons. These neurons were originally referred to as “monkey see, monkey do” neurons after their discovery by a team of researchers at the University of Parma, Italy.

Six Hats – Empathy or Thinking?

Six Hats – Empathy or Thinking? | Emotions | Scoop.it

"Empathy is what we use to feel what others are feeling, and understand what matters to them. Here are some examples:

 

Collaboration: Without empathy, collaboration is just a collection of people arguing their point of view

Dialog: without empathy, conversations are just organised turn taking (Jeez, are they ever going to finish…I have something to say)

Conflict: without empathy, conflicts cannot be truly resolved…and are instead a series of cease fires

Creative Thinking: without empathy, our creative thinking is limited by our own experience and perspective


How to Develop Empathy..."
