    ‘I try to imagine being in someone else’s shoes but I just cannot do it. It makes me feel weak so I choose not to even try anymore.’

    Browsing the 2015 threads I found this comment from HG where he responds to a question about ever feeling empathy. I thought it was interesting because when I feel empathy for someone it generally makes me feel weak, too.

    My empathy kicks when I recognise that someone (or something, if a creature) is suffering in some way that they don’t deserve. I sometimes take the feelings associated with the suffering – fear, sadness, worry – inside, and feel them too. I don’t generally like to linger too long in an empathic state because it can be draining. Fortunately for me, I have an ‘action mode’ which often takes over, and when that occurs my soft feelings instantly disappear and instead fearlessness and determination send me into that situation to try to improve it.

    Sometimes, though, I cannot go into active mode. I have to experience the empathy and suffer those feelings for an elongated period. This has happened in real life a few times but more often it happens in films where I am stuck watching a painful scene and cannot do anything to right it and must endure it. During these moments I have become so emotionally weakened I have been unable to exert control over myself and I have actually ended up in foetal position on the floor in a cinema (yes, FP HG). I wasn’t a child either in this situation – I was a teenager. It is my most extreme reaction but I can list several others I’ve experienced that would still be considered very unusual and they were all brought on by extended exposure to suffering.

    I didn’t mean to tell too much of a story, but I wanted to make the point that I think empathy does weaken us, even if only temporarily. And if HG felt weak when he tried to empathise with someone else, then he was doing it right. I don’t know how old he was when he attempted to feel empathy, but the weakness he felt suggests it’s not the case that he is unable to feel it or that he’s never had that potential. I accept that empathy is not bubbling up inside him (heaven forbid) and that he would prefer not to investigate his empathic limits whatever they are. I can appreciate such weak feelings would ultimately be disadvantageous for him and make him less effective. Plus, the cognitive empathy he does readily experience does a good enough job for its purposes.

    But I guess it means that HG’s heart has to be at least a few kelvins above absolute zero. Nice!
