My score: 52

Hmm, somewhat interesting. However, I think many of the questions about social situations are not necessarily an indicator of empathy. Every situation is unique and I'm comfortable in some more than others. I also think I won't always include or invite people to be part of something if I sense that they really want to be left alone. And comforting someone, I've learned, is sometimes detrimental to their ability to process feelings unfettered and undistracted by someone's "comforting" touch. Sometimes ya gotta let people feel what they feel and cry it all out without trying to make them feel better. So I wonder how such nuances would affect an empathy score.
