Empathy, sympathy, and kindness may seem like elements of a civilized society, something that only highly evolved humans have achieved after overcoming the basic requirements for survival. They may even seem to be at odds with the core tenants of evolution and survival of the fittest. Stanford professor and psychologist, Jamil Saki, joins me to discuss the distinction between these skills, their evolutionary value, and how they are critical today as you drive towards achieving your goals. Empathy may very well be the secret ingredient that allowed relationships, communities and even humanity itself to flourish.

“empathy is actually a vital skill that allows us to accomplish a lot of our goals” [10:47] “sometimes I think people imagine that empathizing has to mean, I hurt when you hurt, and if we believe that then that can get get us into some cul de sac with our own process of empathy that we don't really need to go into.” [21:32] “I think of my parents divorce as like an empathy gym.” [23:43] “when we immerse ourselves in those stories, we can build our empathy towards real people, we can broaden our care towards real others, and that can be another really powerful way to practice this sort of personal growth” [38:05] Guest Bio:
