What do you feel?

What emotions do you experience besides rage? People say aspd means you don't feel emotions. I believe this is a misrepresentation. Everyone feels something otherwise they would any sort of motivation. The inmate who stabs another inmate with a shiv because he cussed at him is feeling anger which is an emotion.

Rather, one could say that they don't feel for OTHERS not that they are devoid of emotions.

So what sort of selfish emotions do you feel?

The ancient art called humorism, is in truth a way you can see right into someones soul.

Monkeys, when they gather and brawl, they cry out loud so hard it sounds like a laugh.

When we laugh, in a split second, we have revealed to everyone what ails us.

Say you can't feel a fkin damn thing with all the flouride you ingest on a regular basis. Then pay attention to how you laugh. It will take a while, as I have only begun this ancient midaevil art myself.

Not always. You can stick somebody with a shiv because that's what cold calculation dictates. The cold calculation would dictate it in the instance that removing the person furthers a goal. Aggression happens all the time for reasons that don't originate from any personal offense...manufacturing a personal offense in some cases comes in handy, though.

Once you put the condition into context, this misconception falls into place and is easy to understand.

It's all to do with under-development. Take a child and watch it for a while and you'll see a set of emotions that are self-serving and rudimentary.

Now take that child and put its brain into an adult and those behaviours, although the same, now seem more problematic. You can pick up a three-year-old by the scruff of the neck and throw it in its bedroom, but you can't do that to a 6' man who spends half the week in the gym.

You learn by experience but the emotional development isn't there, so the emotions remain self-serving and rudimentary.

Personally, I get frustrated, angry, I laugh at stuff a lot, I get contented, and occasionally bored. Just like your standard three-year-old.

Sometimes they feel not quite the same but I struggle to understand what they mean.

I think what stops them developing is the inability to feel empathy, although this is an assumption.
I'm not arguing; I'm explaining why I'm right.

Irritation, anger, rage, contempt, sadness (for myself, self-pity), happiness (again, for myself, though I can feel it for my daughter as well at times), excitement, pride.

I would add boredom to the list, but that's a feeling, not an emotion.

Those are the only emotions I'm familiar with, though barely since they're usually fleeting. Rage and contempt are the only two emotions that aren't fleeting on that list. I feel rage continuously under the surface, and I often feel contempt for other people. I feel anger a lot too, but that usually comes and goes quickly. Though I can hold a grudge. It just depends on the person and the circumstances.

I feel empty quite a lot of the time so it's hard to me to pinpoint emotions.

When I laugh it's not because I'm happy but it's normally because I'm being cruel.

When I she'd a tear it's not because I'm sad because I can be laughing and crying all at the same time.

I practiced expressing anger about 20 years ago and I got quite good at that but it serves no real purpose other than when I'm on my bike.

I am motivated when it comes to earning money so that drives me.

I have all of the feelings anyone would have. I manipulate people by using their emotions against them, if I don't have feelings, I wouldn't be able to do so. The idea that anyone is devoid completely of emotions seems like a stretch to me. I have yet to meet anyone who had zero emotions. If I suppress any emotions, they would be anger or rage. I find they cloud my judgement and make my manipulations less effective. I know I have empathy because I need to know which emotion I am going to manipulate the other person with and what the possible outcomes will be by using that emotion to manipulate. I agree with you that there would be very few people in the world who feel only one emotion.

I wasn’t going to reply but I guess I’m going to cuz honestly I have no clue. I want to say nothing but that can’t practically be right. I wouldn’t have an eating disorder and BDD if it was ‘nothing’.

I think anger mostly. I do feel empty and alone but having people around makes things worse. They interrupt order most of the time so I don’t know. I’m not sure if I even fit in this section but my GP did box me under this category and she’s the one with the degree so.

Anger and sadness. Both at somewhat myself I would assume because i wish my wiring would sometimes just work the way it’s supposed to and I wasn’t so weird.

I don't experience full blown rage. Anger is extremely rare.

I am mostly content or irritated/annoyed by something. Sometimes bored.
I don't fake it, I just make it.
