On Features of Empathy
The study performed reflects complexity and variety of the phenomenon of empathy. Analysis of differences of neurotic patients and healthy people in empathic interaction has displayed that, unlike healthy people whose empathic interaction is based on internal attitudes and capabilities, empathy of neurotics distinguishes with unconscious and involuntary character. Outer, affective aspects are predominant in empathy of patients. There is no difference between patients and healthy respondents in displaying empathy towards people. High level of empathy of neurotic patients is caused by wider range of empathy objects: animals, literature heroes. The hypothesis of a higher empathy level of neurotic patients compared to healthy испытуемыми has been proved.
