Perspective Taking and Empathic Concern Scales

 Davis developed a two dimensional approach to assess empathy with items measuring perspective taking and empathic concern.

Each item is measured on a five-point scale from 0 to 4. The anchor labels are "Does not describe me well" to "Describes me well." Some items are reversed scored.

There are 7 perspective taking items and 7 empathic concern items.
