Their result for The Empathy Test ...

The Average Joe

8 Empathy!

You have a pretty even balance of caring for others and caring for yourself.  You will go out of your way to make sure you don't hurt other people, but you won't necessarily try to help them, either.  I would say you're like the majority of people.  Take the time once in a while to do something really caring for somebody else.  You might be surprised at how good it makes you feel.
