    I already pointed this out but my post got deleted. Yeah it's a major symptom but doesn't necessarily mean you're a psychopath though.

    Should I be worried? Is there something I can do so I don't end up doing psychopath stuff?

    I doubt you're a psychopath because you care enough to tell people you can't feel emotions. People who were actually psychopaths wouldn't care enough to do what you're doing. If you are still worried look at the symptoms online and if you only have like 1 out of 14 of them then you're fine. Also being a psychopath is a common misconception that you're a violent and dangerous human being but this is not the case and it is more commons in people than you think. If you wanna do a test here it is.

    Agree. Many highly successful people are supposedly psychopaths. Only a small percentage of them are dangerous. But I do think it would be a good idea if firstly you spoke to your GP, who would then refer you to a Psychiatrist for a thorough assessment. I said in another thread how my GP referred me and at my first session with him it was a get to know me thing that lasted for an hour and a half. After that time he was able to diagnose me with Social Phobic Disorder and some sort of social deprivation disorder. He said if I had gone to him in my late teens or early twenties something could have been done to help me, because at that age my brain was still developing. However, seeing as I went to him at the age of 28 he told me there was nothing that could be done as my personality by that age was set. It could be you have something that can be worked with as long as you are young enough, OP.

    Me too. Honestly, I have 0 emotions. I don't mean I am so rude to everyone but I am rude. I have friends I like but for the most part I don't care about things that have no affect on me even if its the worst thing ever.

    I care about my relationship with god and thats about it. I feel like its supposed to me that way and yes I know I should try and be kinder but this makes me, me so don't worry it doesn't make you a bad person we simply cannot give in and care

    I just remembered I do feel a little bit of pain. I don't know if pain counts as an emotion. But when something is hurting I don't do anything about it. I guess I can't be bothered. I remember once my pinky got stuck in a door and it almost feel off my hand. Only a little bit was attached and it was all bloody. I was forced to go to the hospital by school. It hurt a little bit
    Hi! It does sound like you should visit the GP about this. What you're experiencing can be caused by a number of things, which you GP will be able to help you figure out. You may receive a referral to a specialist as well who'll be able to help you. Explain about the lack of emotion, and the lack of response to pain/injury as well. This example is a good way to explain the latter

    Wow..people are really insensitive

    Firstly, don't go checking Dr Google to see if you have any mental illness. Criteria for the majority of mental illnesses overlap on multiple points and a questionnaire is without context that an actual assessment would have.

    There are many reasons for lack of emotion some of which can be trauma related defences. I lost all my emotions and my pain responses were dulled. The more serious injury, the more likely your body is to go into shock and deploy the defence mechanism it's been using to cope.

    That being said, you should really speak to doctor and insist on being taken seriously. It may not be mental illness, it could be a physiological or neural response.

    Pain is an emotion as is worry. You may not feel it on a conscious level but it's prompting you to seek help.
