Human Beings’ superpower

One of the strongest super powers that humans have is the power of empathy. I don’t mean this in a wishy-washy way, but I do mean it in the sense that our powers of empathy is what allows us to sense what others are feeling at the time, which fosters cooperation. Cooperation in turn, is what has allowed us more than anything to succeed as a species.

Cooperation has allowed us to adapt to new environments and survive in the areas as diverse as the frozen tundras of Siberia and the scorching deserts of the Sahara. No other species in the animal kingdom can claim this ability to live in areas which span over this much diversity. Could you imagine a polar bear living in the Sahara? Yeah, me neither.

What I’m getting at, is the fact that because of our mental abilities we have been able to climb to the top of the food chain and get to a point where our biggest threat is ourselves and each other as opposed to other species.

So what is the point of this post?

It is to highlight what makes us uniquely human as well as to give you an appreciation of your own superpower, so that you might better understand how to use them in everyday life to better your own circumstances as well as the circumstances of the people around you
