The problem isn't that Johnny can't read. The problem isn't even that Johnny can't think. The problem is that Johnny doesn't know what thinking is; he confuses it with feeling.

The Empathy Filter
The Empathy Personality Spectrum Filter is likely among the most misunderstood
that we possess. What exactly is
in the first place? Actually, our general understanding of that is varied and broad. Which is to say that often, while people may discuss empathy with each other, they actually are discussing different things and may not even be aware of it. How ironic is that?

For the purposes of this chapter,
defines "Empathy" as the ability to understand what another is thinking and perceiving from that other's own perspective.
Note how this is different from a more common understanding of Empathy. Generally, many consider empathy as "understanding what another is thinking and feeling as if we were in that person's situation."
Not only is that substantially different from
definition, it is also much easier to imagine. It is also extraordinarily likely to give an incorrect understanding of another's thinking and perspective.
