This requires putting our assumptions aside to see the situation through the eyes of the other person . Judging another person's situation discounts the experience and is an attempt to protect ourselves from the pain of the situation Just like the empathy map, we have to listen to not just our users’ words, but their emotion, the context, the scenario, to understand their feelings. Empathy isn’t just something we observe, it’s a conversation. We have to repeat back what we thought we observed to validate our assumptions.
