1. meh. Empathy is overrated.
I have almost none. I'm still a liberal.

2. Empathy---being able to put yourself in the other person's place.
To me this seems necessary in all kinds of situations.

3. It may be necessary for social situations
but I avoid them like the plague. Too much stress trying to divine the intent behind every word and every gesture, and to no useful end. Tires me out.

*Shrugs* Everyone's wired differently.
