When a person feels nothing I guess that in a way it is a blessing from the sky because you don't feel any emotional attachment. In a way it is an emotional freedom, my opinion.

Could be an autism spectrum condition beginning with possibly Kanner autism. From childhood there is low emotional response or non synchronised response. Happens too with types of Schizophrenia. For such to be the case your facial mimicry would be weak and mask-like. That is eyes not responsive or engaging and interaction monotone. I myself have very low emotional response and very weak facial expression. This is your main avenue to explore. Observe how normal people alter facial expression to fit with emotional interaction. Compare with yourself. Women seem to be facially more expressive than men and some intellectual men show slightly weak mimicry.

It's the only insight I can give. That is, if what you're describing is low emotional response or inability to function emotionally. In such cases, facial expression and voice tone (intonation, modulation) are what good analysts will observe in a patient. If you smile a lot on cue and are quick to empathise with others, then we can probably rule out autism spectrum.

"Facial expressions smooth social interactions: A smile may show interest, a frown empathy. People with autism have difficulty making appropriate facial expressions at the right times, according to an analysis of 39 studies1. Instead, they may remain expressionless or produce looks that are difficult to interpret.

The new work is the largest yet to explore this issue. Such studies are rare relative to those focused on autistic people’s difficulty interpreting others’ expressions.

Producing suitable expressions is likely to be just as important to social interaction as reading others’ faces, says lead researcher Elina Birmingham, associate professor of education at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, Canada. “Face-to-face interactions are a two-way street,” she says. "

I'm surprised they say it's rare. When I discovered how to "read" faces, it made distinguishing autism spectrum conditions much easier. Bizarre as it may seem, watching reruns of Dallas really brought this home to me as the actors communicate with eye and facial expression. Put bluntly, you can interpret a great deal of non verbal language via facial and vocal responsiveness. You can also freeze actors expressions on a basic dvd player and see rapid emotional response.

Those with emotional defecit hardly use expression at all or may just be out of synch with others i.e. frown instead of smile.

Yes, I do have very low emotional reaction and what most call "low empathy". In your own case then we can probably eliminate autism spectrum as a possibility. However, even in my case I do tend to experience emotions towards animals. Around dogs I tend to be very caring and feel deep emotion I hope you can find an answer to your concern.

It can be characterized as Alexithymia which is a personality trait characterized by the subclinical inability to identify and describe emotions experienced by one's self or others.
