Emphatie : Gewinne und Verluste im Erwachsenenalter

Empathy : Gains and Losses in Adulthood

  • The present study investigated age differences in two facets of empathy - empathic accuracy and emotional congruence - in a sample of young (N = 80, M = 32 years) and old (N = 73, M = 59 years) adults. It was hypothesized that age differences in empathic reactions will be moderated by the age relevance of the topic a target person talks about: participants will show more empathic accuracy and emotional congruence if the topic is relevant to their own age group.
