Are some people incapable of learning to love something more than themselves? Do they have a sense of what love even feels like in order to tell?
Do they even understand the reason that most people have pets is because of the love they can share with that animal, and not because that animal can serve them in a practical, non-emotional way. Eg. Helping the human get exercise due to a sense of practical obligation to health needs of a dog, training a dog to do tricks for amusement of self and others, etc.
Does anyone have a deadened sense of emotion to the point where they can't relate when other people try to explain their own feelings?
Do you just want to win in the game of life? Do you use emotional mimicry to fit in or use for your own goals?
Do such people experience any sense of loss because of inability to feel things as others do? What could loss feel like to these people? Is it a logical conclusion instead of an emotional one? What is the drive to succeed without emotions?
Do you think the behavior of emotional response can be learned or unlearned?
Lots of questions, but do please discuss. Particularly if you feel that you can identify with having much less of an emotional response to your peer group.
