Empathy and Bias

We started off by thinking about what we empathize about and the definition of it which is simply putting yourself into someone else’s situation and judging from their perspective not from your own. The most important thing that i learnt about is to not judge people with what you have heard about them ;but you should deal with them based on your experience. We had a very interesting discussion about what annoys us and the excuses that we give to people where it turned out to be that simple annoying situations could turn into someone hating a huge group of people or a specific race and treating them differently based on a single experience which was actually shocking. I learnt that I have to keep an open mind when people do things that annoy me and always think of their reason or intentions before i judge any situation.
