Cognitive empathy: the ability to predict others’ thoughts and intentions, reading between the lines. Affective empathy: the ability to share another’s feelings. Compassionate empathy: the desire to help others (though perhaps not knowing how).
I am not an introvert but I love and respect a great many people who are. I wish more people would understand what it means to be an introvert - maybe you are and you don't even realise. Introversion does not equal shyness.
