I think detecting fear, in whatever way you label, is instinctive. You see another human running in fear and you will be prompted to do as well. (unless it is from you they are running). It is a basic survival reaction and we have needed it.

  • Mirroring is simple to see: if you are not hated you have no capacity for hate.
    To understand man is the purview of every person, not of specialists.

Credulousness is when the process of being made more useful to duplicitous exploiters leaves us presuming to have become superior. Something is growing that is killing the mind; thereby orphaning the children in one's very care.
Learning, if not credulous, is always growing. Teaching is always degenerating. Glibness is a vice in either case, the former because one will wish one had said more, and the latter because one will admire one's rubbish unto death.

The conscious is where we produce the other person's privacy of thought, as accomodating his deception process (an offshoot of the obedience-habit);

and so it is also where we have ideas about instincts rather than having these instincts. Instincts would preclude the other person's privacy of thought, gains, smoke-screens and intent.

To describe fear as "The instinctive awareness of proceeding into trouble!" (as fear felt personally), so that as soon as any hint of it arrives one may minimize the damage and the repercussions thereof by proceeding no further;

and as "The awareness of another person or creature having proceeded into trouble!" (as felt impersonally, the way a dog usually feels it because it has a "professional interest" in who is in trouble, who is about to have his status reduced to fresh meat),

makes no sense to the conscious (the conditioning), because its imperative or prime directive is to obediently accomodate every other person's intent to deceive us (to go for the master's rewards, in other words, and avoid the wrath of his dissembled congenital ineptitude).
