Given the importance of perspective taking and the associated constructs of empathic concern and personal distress, together with the interest in the varying associations of these constructs with different forms of self-evaluation, a systematic exploration of the correlations of self-esteem and self-compassion with elements of interpersonal reactivity is valuable. In this meta-analysis, I investigate the correlation of these constructs to both self-evaluation frameworks.
