Narcissist? Mindfulness might not improve your empathy after all
Narcissistic traits were defined as those who feel superior to others and want to be admired, but aren’t so good at sharing the emotional states of other people (affective empathy).
While those with autistic traits, on the other hand, were those who don’t have problems sharing the emotional states of other people, but struggle working out what other people are feeling (cognitive empathy).
One of the three groups spent five minutes in a guided mindfulness mediation session, the second group took part in a relaxation exercise, and the last group invited to let their minds wander.
