I think the biggest difference in the work force i have noticed for myself, and a big reason I don’t seem to fit in to management positions, is that I refuse to see people as numbers. As an empath I want everyone to succeed so I want to work with them and help them achieve greatness. These are people, with real loves and real debts and real goals. I can’t just be the person who goes in and chops heads off.
I was told many times to be more cut throat and get more harsh with people and it made me sick to my stomach when I tried it. This eventually was a big factor for being pushed out of a job I lived. I am proudly empathetic and would rather feel I’ve done good in the world than be someone I’m not to make other people money.
