Abstract

"Empathy Intensity" In Early Childhood: Classified Intensity Of Emotion During Empathy Situations

This article examined intensity of emotion in children while reacting to empathy situations. It aimed to reveal a connection between children's intensity of emotion in regard to empathy situations and their ability to explain emotions and their choice of empathetic behavior.

Two theoretical sources were chosen to examine this subject. The first and major is the accumulating knowledge of empathy in children, and the second is the closest term to describe the intensity of emotion - self-regulation. The ability to respond to the ongoing demands of experience with the range of emotions in a manner that is socially tolerable and sufficiently flexible to permit spontaneous reactions as well as the ability to delay spontaneous reactions as needed.

This study examined the intensity of emotions of children regarding empathy situations, and the connection between the intensity of emotions and the child's willingness to act in situations that arouse empathy.

This study concentrated on Empathy Intensity. It tried to classify Empathy Intensity during empathy situations. It also looked for connections between Empathy Intensity and other parts of empathy with hope that Empathy Intensity could shed light on the knowledge about the mechanisms underlying empathic feelings during empathy situations.
