Android Studio : How to change default cursor style and behavior?

In Eclipse and many other editors we've same behavior for these Cursor styles:

Default Cursor in Eclipse Insert mode: The cursor inserts a character at its current position, forcing all characters past it one position further.

Insert Cursor in Eclipse Overtype mode : The cursor, when typing, overwrites any text that is present in the current location.

But In Android Studio, this cursor is behaving opposite

This is very annoying for me, Can anyone tell me how to fix this behavior ?

(As we know in windows, We can toggle cursor behavior & style by pressing Insert key )
