It involves being able to see the point of view of someone you usually consider to be part of an outgroup.
Research finds that being able to offer another point of view - especially if you're part of the outgroup - can be just as important to social change as perspective-taking.
Both perspective-taking and perspective-giving are powerful tools to help negotiate differences, particularly between groups of different power dynamics.
Although similar, perspective-taking is not the same as empathy. Empathy falls short in trying to reduce polarization. In fact, empathy appeared to make things worse.
We tend to feel empathy more towards people like us, that we can relate to. If an outgroup attacks an ingroup, the empathic concern doesn't help.
Empathic concern is an emotional form of empathy, which is based on our gut responses.
Perspective-taking is consciously and intellectually taking the viewpoint of our opponents, even if they have no emotional warmth towards us. The goal is to understand why they feel the way they do.
