Abstract: (Show)
An attempt has been made to develop a test for measuring empathic ability. This was done by obtaining ratings, on a 5 point scale, of each of 6 characteristics. Each individual rated himself; rated another; rated the other as he believed the other would rate himself; and rated himself as he believed the other would rate him. Results on 53 students indicate promising validity and reliability for the test. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2016 APA, all rights reserved)
