Do people truly understand the impact that they have on others.

An old post I had on TED just popped up and it had generated 52 comments. That in of it's self is not startling given some of the threads which lead from questions posed by the TED community. It did however get me thinking about the cause and effect that we have on others. Do we really stop to thin about the actions we take and how they may effect other people. Do Teachers understand the effect they will have on the Students who pass through their classes? Doctors, Firemen, Shopkeepers...Do we fully understand the power that we have to shape a persons life either short time or long. If we accepted that power would it scare us?
