Abstract: 

Seven- hundred and twenty- six undergraduate students of Tehran universities in the field of humanities & technical-engineering science have been studied on empathy aspects, identity styles and commitment. The "Interpersonal Reactivity Index" (IRI) (Davis, 1983) and "Identity Style Inventory" (ISI-6G) (White, Wampler & Winn, 1998) were utilized.
Results of correlation indicated that emotional empathy had a significantly positive relationship with normative and avoidance identity styles and significantly negative correlation with commitment. Cognitive empathy (Perspective-taking) had a significantly positive correlation with information identity style. Multiple regressions analyses suggested that the most important predictor's variables for emotional empathy were respectively: nonnative identity style, commitment, sex, educational major and avoidance identity style. The most important predictor variable for perspective-taking was information identity style. Finally, multiple regression analyses for predicating commitment based on survey variables suggested that the most important predictor's variables for commitment; informative and nonnative style were positive and respect to emotional empathy and avoidance style were negative.
