The Limits of Empathy

A good look at why I appear to not hugely care about many things. It isn’t that I don’t care- its just that I see the larger picture better than most people and realize the futility of instinctive over-reaction. I actually DO care- but not to the point of futile emotional displays (well usually not where anyone besides my wife needs to see it.)

A good article worth the read if you have time to spare:
