    Is empathy and the ability to recognize what people feel the same?

    I've noticed something that is abnormal. I have a terrible lack of empathy, usually it is near impossible for me to feel how other people feel, I'm always confused in some situations, like death. I cannot feel how other people are feeling, like I cannot be sad with other people, but I can tell they're sad. When people talk, I can always tell how people are feelings through their tones, actions, movement and words they use that other people wouldn't catch up on. You can tell me now that everyone can do this, but I can do this to a further extent. I can tell some of their motives behind of the things they do, but at the same time I can't feel what they are feeling. People tell me I'm empathic, but I feel like its not true because I have a terrible sense of empathy. So are they the same?

    All your feelings are shut up inside your body, I'm guessing you choose not to express them

    I'm going to go with what @Pikaboom said and say that you choose to bottle up all your emotions, which is normal because I do it too so your not alone my friend, I'm sure a lot of people do this but the danger in this is if you experience a very traumatic event you may not be able to control your emotions or actions :/

    There's a difference between apathy and Asperger's. Which is a high-functioning form of autism.

    Bro, I think you're getting a little too worked up over the doings of the Internet. You preaching left vs. right isn't going to make a difference.
