comment What word means “the feeling of discomfort caused by watching people's ineptitude”?
TylerH is right. Empathize does not mean sympathizing. Empathize means having empathy, which is having the same feeling as someone else. Sympathizing means having sympathy, which is feeling badly for someone else without feeling what they feel yourself. Empathy is more powerful in my opinion. And, neither of these define what the OP was looking for; quite the opposite, in fact!

comment Is there a word for someone who really has their act together
Yes, that was my mistake I jumped the gun. If you make an edit I can remove my downvote. (Vote is locked now)

comment Is there a word for someone who really has their act together
I have to agree with Mari-Lou, this isn't a good word for this usage either... demonstrated by your statement, I'd assume there's a fairly high probability that she manages her time well. If you need to assume that, then the word did not expressly convey it.

comment Is there a word for someone who really has their act together
I am Jewish and was brought up with the word mensch. It is a great word and does describe really positive characteristics, but as was said above, it does not mean "someone who manages their time well" and thus is not correct for this question.
