Understanding empathy and emotions in informal care givers in comparison to non-care givers
Researchers have had proposed that varying empathy‐related reactions are distinctively in relation to individual differences in emotional intensity and regulation. This world has all kinds of diversified types of human beings living on the planet Earth, and every human being is living on, on their side of the coin. Some are born with the conventional human abilities and some are not. Those who belong into the ‘not’ section, face some more difficulties than usual. They sometimes require help of these conventionally normal human beings and this study helps us see how helping the differently-abled changes our perception and the difference in emotions we experience. The sample taken included 34 informal care givers for differently-abled and 29 non-care givers aged in the range from 18-25. The results bared a significant difference in positive affect between informal care givers and non-care givers. The results also brought view into a significant difference in empathy between the two groups. This difference in empathy and perception leading to decision making remains a fruitful exploration.
