You feel empathy for Rottweiler more than human beings? When we watch a movie about dogs, and something bad happens to the dog we tend to feel sad, disappointed and we even cry for what happens to them. But with humans we’re not the same. We are concerned more about what would happen to a dog more than a person.
We consider dogs our best friends, so we love them feel more empathetic to them more than anything. That’s what new researches have shown.
According to a study from CA University, we tend to feel bad about dogs who gets injured or be in dangerous situations more than people who are in the same situations. We only feel the same with human babies.
In a study in the Northeastern University by sociologists and anthropologists, it’s proved that humans show more empathy for dogs rather than other humans. The researchers asked 250 students to imagine stories about disasters happens with humans and dogs, and the results showed that our furry friends won.
90% of the students showed more sorrow for the dogs’ suffering. Kathrine McAleese, a socialist and psychotherapist said: “many people value dogs as vulnerable humans regardless of their age compared to adult humans.”
However, it’s also noted that we tend to make stronger bonds with our dogs more than other people. We consider dogs kids of our family.
Love and loyalty has built empathy, some people got disappointed from other people. People sometimes lose trust in others after a betrayal. That’s why you feel empathy for Rottweiler friend more than human beings. Your furry friend will not do that no matter what. Your Rottweiler will never let you down.
