  • It can be learned or acquired; it is not innate
  • Is an emotional perceptiveness that has courage blended with fear that responds to the feelings or fear of another person
  • It is a quality that is required of individuals living in a civil society.
  • Allow us to live life well
  • Involve acting with good intent; morally appropriate in that circumstance; acting with good motive
