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. "
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.
