People who lack emotional empathy have to develop cognitive empathy instead if they want to functuion properly in society. That includes a lot of learning: facial expressions, gestures, tones of voice, etc. All the stuff empaths understand instinctively. Local sociopaths teach their kids well. We see little Rita here with her parents. Ren draws the pictures, Lara explains them. Types of smiles were especially hard for her. Difference between fake and real (Duchenne) smile is subtle. Another memory here is 12 year old Tim who Rita's nurse at the time. Tim is not even a pure empath, he's just close to that side of the empathic spectrum, yet he impressed her enough that she began to question herself.
