What is the difference between the feeling functions and empathy and which one does empathy fall under?

Fe - empathy, Fe users will often tell you stories of their own personal troubles as way to empathize i.e. show understanding of your feelings by trying to make a connection to you as in "hey I had this same experience a month ago, I understand what it feels like!"

Fi - sympathy, Fi users will often try to use comforting words as a way to console you, may hug you to make you feel better, they treat your emotional problems as unique to you and may ask you about the details of your problems - this is different from reinforcement of the connection as means of support that Fe users do by telling personal stories to others
