  1. Because you don't feel connected to the events: fictional things are not your “part”. However, people can experience fictional or, so to speak, induced emotions quite strongly: when reading books, in the theater or in the cinema – good ones, of course – people's emotions and sensations are very strong. If this does not happen to you, then either the source of emotions is too weak (a bad writer, not your topic, bad acting, etc.), or you are a very detached person, most likely fixated only on yourself.
    But you need to understand that people's memories are also in many cases unreal: very often everything was wrong or even wrong at all, or maybe it wasn't at all. Memory plays bad tricks on people: everything gets mixed up, changed, and simply forgotten. And the more time passes, the stronger this effect is. Psychologists, as well as lawyers, are well aware of this: a witness or victim does not always tell a lie, because he is lying – he may well believe what he says. So it remains to be seen whether this is the reason you feel your “effect”.
