    I looked it up. My apologies, you did revive an ancient thread but you didn't do it to have a dig at anyone.

    'Empathy' defined as correctly identifying emotions is not the same as being a nice person!

    Psychopaths usually have great 'empathy'. It's essential for being able to manipulate people.

    It's probably the meaning of share we disagree on.

    Maybe I'm wrong.
