Abstract
For some authors, the development of empathy is a central aspect of the development of ethical values. Role-playing games can be the ideal vehicle to transfer learning from fiction to reality. The present study analyzes in an exploratory and descriptive way the scores obtained in the Test of Cognitive and Affective Empathy (TECA) of a total sample of 208 participants. Although no major differences were found between those who had previously participated in role-playing games and those who had not, there was a tendency to obtain higher mean scores than those obtained by the TECA through its scales.
Para algunos autores, el desarrollo de la empatía es un aspecto central del desarrollo de los valores éticos. Los juegos de rol pueden ser el vehículo ideal para trasladar aprendizajes de la ficción a la realidad. El presente estudio analiza de forma exploratoria y descriptiva las puntuaciones obtenidas en el Test de Empatía Cognitiva y Afectiva (TECA) de una muestra total de 208 participantes. Aunque no se han hallado grandes diferencias entre las personas que habían participado con anterioridad en juegos de rol y las que no lo habían hecho, si se detecta una tendencia a obtener puntuaciones medias superiores a las que lanza el TECA a través de sus baremos.
