You are working in your office. There is a candidate who is waiting outside to be interviewed. Its been half and hour and nobody has gotten up to go and conduct the interview. You are feeling uneasy because you kind of feel bad because the poor candidate has been waiting for so long even though its not your fault. So you finally ask your colleague to go and interview the candidate. What would would describe what you are feeling at that moment that prompted you to ask your colleague to go and conduct the interview?
It's not guilt, its not pity.
