Hundreds of studies evaluated


Werner Bartens is known for his sensational theses. His new book is also full of interesting insights into our inner life. This time, Bartens vividly addresses the "compassion" for which he has evaluated hundreds of international studies.

"Empathy" is the name of the book. And one of the most interesting insights is that others show compassion not only to others, but also to ourselves. For example, empathetic people suffer less from depression and are less sensitive to pain.

Giving is more soulful than taking


Would you have thought that compassion not only appeals to others, but also to one's own body? "Positive feelings such as satisfaction, understanding and empathy have a direct impact on health," Bartens writes.

Those who live compassionately, others and consider oneself considerately, become less ill and even have a longer life expectancy. The old wisdom "giving is more soulful than taking" has its justification.

Lesson for caring and sympathy


"Empathy" is a lesson about caring and caring. About the value of compassion in human relationships and in professional life.

On the basis of scientific research results from psychology and medicine, the author demonstrates that empathic people are not only more lovable, but also more successful, better able to push personal defeats, to celebrate successes appropriately, but not to stand out.

The power of the love hormone


Of course, Bartens also devotes himself to the unwritten rules of love and partnership. That lovers in the literal sense can not let each other go, almost burst with happiness and mentally and physically run one hundred percent synchronously with the partner - all no coincidence, but a hormonal story (oxytocin).

Being in love creates the basis for the empathy that we later need in love, when everyday life has covered up the first euphoria episodes with quarrels and boredom: "Those who remain empathetic in the altercation are better at healing wounds. Those who appear hostile stay with wounds longer. "

Can you learn empathy?


Is it possible to "learn" empathy? Not really, she is innate anyway. But everyone does well to reorient their empathic sensors. The book provides a wonderful guide. Recommendation!
