Ugh, I forgot to respond to this question! I never wanted kids so never had them. I'm 43 and that's never changed even in the slightest. The only maternal instincts I have are towards animals. I adore all animals, have loved my pets unconditionally and been extremely bonded, I have enormous empathy for them and have since I was 3 years old, and am an excellent "mother" to my furbabies. I have infinite patience whereas with almost all people...no. lol.
I get the animal thing. They are intelligent, full of unconditional love, and they won't piss us off - well some can be naughty. Lol I believe animals know we love them. My dog was re-homed with us. His first owner passed away and she sat in front of his bedroom door for a 1 month. She is very attached to me now and I want to make sure she doesn't suffers. I am very allergic to cats. They are funny though. I used to own a bird and a rabbit. 🐾😽

I read about psychopathy. Absolute nonsense. It is foolish to be given such a diagnosis. It turned out that many people had psychopathic traits. As far as empathy ... for me, anyone who reacts initially grieves that he himself may be hurt. Lack of empathy is a defense mechanism. For me, it's even healthy. In fact, psychopathy is a problem for others. And also a problem is if a psychopath falls for a psychopath. Then wars happen.
First of all, psychopathic traits are difficult to distinguish on a child, sometimes they can be taken as spite and normal child "outburst" reactions.
Psychopathy / sociopathy it's usually part of a growth, which varies in some way the reactions of the brain to stimuli.
I'm not a specialist about psychopathologies, and I don't think I'm a psychopath either,
but it's not like learning to cook.
You either have empathy and guilt (some more, some less) or you miss it for various reasons. Nobody "learns" not to have empathy, at most you can learn to have little more or a little more emotional detachment.

I add that I had to "train" myself when very young, looking at the emotional reactions of others, and behaviors, in order to now being able to read between the lines and read body language, so as to imitate and adapt to people and situations, but I don't even know why this is.
The fact of the psychopath / sociopath being portrayed by the media as always being a killer or with bad intentions is a bunch of crap.
Are everywhere and you wouldn't even notice

I do not think. The child copies behavior. So it's no wonder you learned to react like everyone else.
Although another thing I notice is that in pregnancies with bleeding, the child is then nervous. Also if he was born earlier. Parents may not be to blame. If for some reason you have decided to be different. I finally have to sit down to study English ...🙂

Oh boy. lol. Um...ok. So we haven't "decided" to be different. This is how we are. And it's also just a part of who we are.

Secondly, I really don't think all children born via pregnancies with bleeding are nervous. My mum bled a lot after I was born as I got stuck because I was long and fat for a baby girl back in 1978, but thankfully the hospital was good and her doctor was an expert surgeon.

As far as I'm aware, most births include some bleeding. Things tear, there are various fluids, and in the case of Caesarian sections, there is a large incision. So all these babies are born nervous? Nah. If anything, I think MOST babies are born confused, scared and uncomfortable because they've just been thrust into a bright, loud and unfamiliar world and don't understand it or even know HOW to understand, since everything is instinct at that very early stage. The only babies NOT nervous about being born are VERRRRRRY laid back babies. lol

Only wenn the woman has problem whenn she ist pregnat, we may speak for genetick. I mean that. Also i believe, that TE-90 has copied his grandpa. I've seen that with my children. And it's difikult to control, when the older people are bad ang give bad example.

You don't understand me. Not every woman has bleeding in the first three months of pregnancy and not every woman takes pills that baby to stay. That's what I meant. Does not matter. I'm also bored, I even feel a parade with the diagnosis "loved the excitement, did not tolerate boredom" ... if we do not talk about blood and murder, it is boring. Start working in a butcher's shop.No mor boring.

I know you're trying to understand but I didn't know my great grandfather well,
I was too young and in any case he has nothing to do with it, no one gave a bad example.
It's very likely that the fact that I've never felt wanted or loved for years, due to the fact that my father didn't exist in my life and my birth wasn't planned / wanted, but accepted (despite my mother giving me unconditional affection) could have triggered something.
Nonetheless, my family members are certainly not the cause.

I don't get it, you could have left at any time, no one asked or forced anything from you.
Anyway I'm done with this.

Yes, exactly. Why she musst that writing? When is boring, go at home. :)
It is interessting for me to understend you, TE-90. I told you, that I am to emotional and to understend you is better for me. Also I want to help...before i wanted to study Psihology. Or I am enough crazy to soeak wiht all... Probably is a litle Psihose. When i am writing, it is not so good.
