To be without feeling is to be totally cerebral. Entirely logical. Your decisions are not motivated by passions. It brings about interesting thoughts towards others. You witness people acting emotionally and wonder why they do as they do. They act in ways harmful to their cause, favoring instead the route of anger or sadness. You develop a near Machiavellian mindset in your dealings; due to your logic-oriented mind, you can better consider how to manipulate situations (and people) to achieve your desired outcome. You develop an inflated ego. Only it isn't an ego, merely an acknowledgement that you are more capable than others. You do not look down from others. Such an activity is beneath you. Disdain is something from which you disdain.

In his book Crime and Punishment, Fyodr Dosteovsky kind of addresses apathy through Raskolnikovs troubles, and if you're interested in other intriguing ideas on it, I would suggest this book. He commits a murder, and learns through experience his inability to cut himself off from emotions and therefore his inability to rise above other commonfolk, though things do take a twist that I will not reveal.

Well, maybe science can... if they create some pill or injection that makes you FEEL care and compassion... but in truth, you may feel that way, but you can still choose not to act. And even if you feel apathetic, you can still choose to act.
