    In East Asian society it is considered a sign of being stupid or uncivilized when you show a lot of emotion. A person should be well mannerred and in control of themselves. Thus there is less exposure to emotional outbursts and such. I think in many ways East Asian society is the most civilized on the planet. When you think about it it makes total sense. One can think of how white trash tend to fight and argue a lot and have outbursts. Or low class black people who scream and yell or seem to almost comically over react emotionally to events. Compare this to the "stiff upper lip" of the ultra successful, highly civilized English upper class. I would guess that the lack of ability in distinguishing emotions is less genetic and more involved with degree of exposure someone has to emotional outbursts.
