Creativity, Innovation, and Change are Side Effects of Empathizing (Please read the description before replying)
There's a story that goes behind this question, so please watch the following video to understand what I mean by the idea. It will save us a lot of time sorting through the misunderstandings: http://vimeo.com/36629796
Also, here's an operational definition of "empathy" I'd like to use for this particular conversation:
"A capacity to viscerally imagine the current physical (or sometimes mental) state of an other, and as an extension their future actions. Who or what this other is depends solely on your own personal limits of empathy. It could be a person, an animal, a plant, an object, or a piece of script, or even your own body. An other is simply anything and everything we do not fully understand. So even ourselves are a subject of empathy as we often have to try and understand ourselves."
It is explained more in this video: http://vimeo.com/36629754
