# Do We Feel the Same Empathy for Loved and Hated Peers?

Abstract : Empathy allows us to understand and react to other people's feelings and sensations; we can more accurately judge another person's situation when we are aware of his/her emotions. Empathy for pain is a good working model of the behavioral and neural processes involved in empathy in general. Although the influence of perspective-taking processes (notably Self'' vs. Other'') on pain rating has been studied, the impact of the degree of familiarity with the person representing the Other'' perspective has not been previously addressed. In the present study, we asked participants to adopt four different perspectives: Self'', Other-Most-Loved-Familiar'', Other-Most-Hated-Familiar'' and Other-Stranger''. The results showed that higher pain ratings were attributed to the Other-Most-Loved-Familiar perspective than to the Self, Other-Stranger and Other-Most-Hated-Familiar perspectives. Moreover, participants were quicker to rate pain for the Other-Most-Loved-Familiar perspective and the Self-perspective than for the other two perspectives. These results for a perspective-taking task therefore more clearly define the role of familiarity in empathy for pain.
