    I don't quite get the first lesson....-empathy cannot be taught- it is learnt. In order to learn anything one must be taught. A form of empathy is the ability to feel someone else's pain even when you yourself have no pain. This is not a learnt quality or skill in my opinion. Sociopaths are said to lack empathy while people having extreme empathetic qualities don't know why they have that quality. Sociopaths are not taught to not be empathetic and empathizing people are never forced this emotion.
