Fiction Readers More Empathic















I Feel For You

"According to a study in the Journal of Research in Personality, people who read fiction tend to be more empathetic and score higher on tests of social understanding and awareness."

"...The more authors of fiction that a participant recognised, the higher they tended to score on measures of social awareness and tests of empathy."
