From these definitions (1, 2, 3, 4) I have concluded that warmth is a facet that describes how much a person is showing warmth and love towards other people (e.g., touching, kissing, saying nice things) and empathy is how much a person sympathizes with the feelings of other people.

What if you are high in warmth but low in empathy? How would such a person behave? Isn't those facets are somewhat opposite of one another?

    $\begingroup$ Your links talk about extraversion which is different to warmth and empathy and empathy is not be confused with sympathy. Do you have examples of how someone could be high in warmth but low in empathy? $\endgroup$ May 18, 2020 at 7:34
