Compassion shapes our behaviour towards a person wronged and a wrongdoer and may lead us to help the wronged than to punish the wrongdoer, researchers have found.According to researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the US, a new set of studies suggests that compassion — and intentionally cultivating it through training —impacts the extent to which people punish the transgressor.“Any action — helping or punishing — can arise from compassion, which involves at least two components: a ‘feeling’ component of empathic concern and caring for the suffering of another; and a cognitive, motivational component of wanting to alleviate that suffering,” said lead researcher Helen Weng.
