  1. Unfortunately, yes, they do. When a person stops experiencing emotions for a short or long time, that is, stops feeling. He lives with his senses turned off. However, this does not mean that feelings in a person are not born or do not arise. The emergence of feelings cannot be controlled, that is, you cannot want or somehow learn not to feel at all. Feelings arise on their own. We can manage them only at the level of our behavior and way of thinking.. But due to various reasons or life situations, a person can block access to their feelings and emotions.

    This can happen when a person does not want to be present with their feelings or participate in what is happening in their life;. For example, a person turns off their feelings, hides from them, so as not to enter into close relationships, perhaps with the exception of superficial and (or) insignificant ones for them. A person does not allow others to come to him, shuts himself off from communication, hides behind more important things, or constantly postpones them for later (procrastination). Withdraws into himself or his fantasies.

    In the more severe form, a person develops paralysis of feelings, as a response to the idea or hope that a situation, usually a vitally difficult situation, will resolve itself. The person is already half dead, mentally, and in order to save his life, he shuts down (out of life) through exhaustion. This method of protection from reality becomes the most accessible for them. When constant apathy is added to this and all hopes fade, then a person can destroy all the relationships that connect him with this world, even to the point of destroying himself. At the same time, a person can say that he does not feel anything. And if this condition does not change for the better, then depression occurs.

    All of the above suggests that a person resorts to coping reactions or strategies when he does not find enough strength to cope with a difficult life situation in the best way, and the psyche is forced to save a person from the unbearability of something in his life: what he does not like, what he can not reconcile and (or) adapt to.

  2. There are a lot of options for disrupting your emotional life.

    For example, there is such a curious phenomenon as alexithymia. This is not to say that people who have this phenomenon are not able to feel emotions, but they are not able to distinguish them, link them to specific words and describe them. They often perceive their emotions as strange physiological symptoms.

    Congenital alexithymia is correlated with poor imagination, inability to dream, and a greater risk of developing psychosomatic illnesses. Its causes are unknown.

    At the same time, some alexithymic traits may develop in ordinary people in this sense, for example, due to traumatic experiences or upbringing in which there was no development of skills for processing one's own emotions.

  3. Such people do not exist in nature, because it is the experience of emotions that distinguishes a living person from an inanimate one. Another question is how these people show their emotions and how they manage them – this is a question that sounds more correct.

  4. Yes, I'm one of those people! In general, such a person feels quite comfortable in society.If not discussed, social interactions)))
