Empathy In Tagalog Translation With Meaning

EMPATHY IN TAGALOG – This article will teach you what the word “empathy” is in the Tagalog translation and its meaning.


There are a couple of words in the Filipino language that could be translated into “empathy.” However, the use of these words depends on the context of the sentence. Therefore, be mindful of what you write.

What is the meaning of Empathy in English?

The word “empathy” means the ability to emotionally understand what other people feel, see things from their point of view, and imagine yourself in their place.

Additionally, it is the action of understanding, being aware of, being sensitive to, and vicariously experiencing the feelings, thoughts, and experience of another of either the past or present without having the feelings, thoughts, and experience fully communicated in an objectively explicit manner

3 Types of Empathy

Here are the 3 types of empathy

  • Cognitive: “Simply knowing how the other person feels and what they might be thinking. Sometimes called perspective-taking.”

If you imagine yourself in your friend’s shoes, you know she is likely to be feeling sad, as well as anxious because she relies on that income to pay her student loans. However, having only cognitive empathy keeps you at a distance from your friend. To truly connect with your friend, you need to share their feelings. This is where emotional empathy comes in.

  • Emotional: “When you feel physically along with the other person, as though their emotions were contagious.”

This type of empathy can also extend to physical sensations, which is why we cringe when someone else stubs their toe. In this case, you would look inwards to identify a situation where you were similarly anxious about the future. The situation itself need not be identical, as each individual is different. What’s important is that the emotions resulting from the situation are the same. 

  • Compassionate: “With this kind of empathy we not only understand a person’s predicament and feel with them, but are spontaneously moved to help, if needed.”

It is the balance between Cognitive and Emotional Empathy that enables us to act without being overcome with feeling or jumping straight into a problem solving process.

Signs of Empathy

Here some signs that show that you tend to be an empathetic person:

  • You are good at really listening to what others have to say.
  • People often tell you about their problems.
  • You are good at picking up on how other people are feeling.
