I see the value of hearing people's experiences as primarily an epistemological one. The more I understand of other people's experiences, the better I am able to position myself in the world. I am able to understand better what my own experiences mean if I can relate them to the depths and intensities of another's experiences. I tend to ignore statements of the sort, "this makes me feel like that," because I do not see them as having a clear relation to anything empirical. They might. But it is not clear what that relationship is, unless the person goes so far as to spell out the relationship for me.
