I've recently became aware of the Somatoparaphrenia delusion, where a person thinks that a part of their body belongs to someone else. No amount of logic or evidence would persuade that person otherwise. For example:

This is not my leg, this is my fathers leg.

This makes me ask - is there an emotional equivalent of Somatoparaphrenia, where a person pathologically projects some emotions into others and is unable to realize it is their own emotion?

I'm aware of disorders like Narcissistic Personality Disorder, which has a tendency of projecting negative feelings into the world. But are there more severe cases?
