Hi wife died of a rare form of breast cancer at 44. Not once did he show any emotion. Not once did he shed a tear. It was like it never bothered him. My Dad died 3 years ago and everyone in the family cried except him. Being the oldest son we asked him to speak and said no. He didn't care. He has two kids. One is a daughter that is 27 and his son who just died of an heroin overdoze was 22. His son has had emotional problems since his mother died. My brother just didn't care about his son. In fact, he dropped his son off at the age of 14 with my father and mother who at the time where 78 and 73. His son had a emotional and anger issues, but he just never cared and wanted do anything for him. When he died in November, my brother seemed relieved. He was talking and laughing at the funeral. He seemed relieved that his son was gone.
I know there is something wrong with him because his daughter show the same characteristics. She also did not cry when her Mother and Brother died. My brother has some sort of disorder and I need to know where to start. My first guess is that he has no conscience. He has shown this his whole life. He just doesn't care what happens to other people.
That is the point. I'm hoping he is not heartless and cruel, but I'm beggining to think after all this years that he may have something wrong with him that makes him heartless and is causing him to be cruel. He has always been cruel, but I thought he did it to make himself laugh. I know people who have lost a child and they cry for years.
My brother never even tried to help his son with his emotions, his anger, or his drug habit which eventually killed him at 22. What it comes down to si that he just doesn't care and now his daughter is just like him. Neither one cares about anyone else but themselves. Does he show traits of being psycopath? Not a killer or anything like that. I just don't unerstand who he can be so emotionaless (???) (not sure how to spell that or even if it is a word). I just want to know and then I will accept your answer is; What is a person called who shows no emotion and doesn't care about anyone else but himself?
I'm waiting for an answer to my last reply.
On the nosey. Apparent lack of remorse or empathy for others, cruelty to animals, persistent lying or stealing, a history of childhood contact disorders, agressive behavior, violating the boundaries and rights of others, just to mention some characteristics.
You are correct. Thank you and have a good day. I will accept.
