Empathy is feeling an emotion with someone, and understanding. Sympathy is like trying to comfort them. Would you rather hear "I know how you feel" with a hug, or "at least you aren't dead. "

My vote is for apathy.

Why must one be better than the other?

Empathy, duh.

I don't see how one could be judged better than the other without a goal in mind.

@Heterodox Okay. You have a really good point.

@ pianodude2468 A person could say "I know how you feel" even though they are actually sympathizing and only saying that because they know you will feel better if they think are empathizing.
