uh....i seriously doubt that.....
i guess people become " emotionless" due to the circumstances they are forced to go through...... but i don't think they can ever be 'born' emotionless

Sure. Emotions come from chemicals in our brains, it only stands to reason that these chemicals don't always react properly. Thats how we get mental disorders like these

having no emotions can also be a symptom of another mental disorder like depression

Yes people who have underdeveloped or malformed brains and also people who have damage to specific areas of the brain can have inappropriate and even no emotion. Sociopaths an psychotics are among the most prominent but there are varying degrees of this. They seem to do wellin the cut throat world of corporate management oddly enough

Oarkergreatdane is right. Some people are born without feelings I think. Some Psychos might have an overload of emotions

Yes, some autistics, Aspergers syndrome, Schizoid personality disorder (which is not schizophrenia) and other developmental illnesses, can all appear with lack of emotions.
