TAKE THE TEST HERE

I scored 126 which says I have a degree of Alexithymia though its a hard test to take as it asks what other people think about your emotional abilities, quite difficult if you dont have anybody to emotionally react with, so I had to do a bit of guesswork.

very interesting. I suspect I have it in terms of offending people and not having the foggiest notion as to why people take offense at me.

This is the best alexithymia test I've done, (think this is the 3rd variation of this same test I've now taken?) The questions were easy to answer and made a lot more sense and I felt like the key at the bottom, the break down was spot on for me.
To note though, I have also recently had an experience where I was pushed to describe my feelings when I break down to a counsellor and other emotions in general, so I have that experience of describing my feelings to draw from.
I like that there's a section for identification of feelings and also describing feelings...I know when I have feelings and I will be able to know when they happen and why they happen, but as to what they are specifically I can have a hard time.

I got 112 overall and this breakdown

87 points, which means I definitely don't have it. I'm pretty self aware when it comes to my feelings, even if I do find them difficult to deal with.

114. Not as bad as I thought it might have been but I still consider myself an emotional retard. I've become quite good at figuring out others (I've seen people's douchey behaviour coming a long way off and was then vindicated by others after they also finally saw their true colours which I predicted). But I still struggle to 'feel' my way through life. I'm one of those Sheldon Cooper types who thinks or 'logics' their way through life. I'm capable enough of feeling that I can lament this because I know I'm missing out on a lot of colour and depth in the world. It seems like something I have a choice over but something tells me now isn't the right time.

I just found the test and was going to start a thread about it, good thing I checked first!

As with most of these sorts of questionnaires there were some dodgy questions, but overall I'd say it's a fairly neat test.

holy crap. I just took this out of curiosity and scored 121. I didn't even expect the score to be that high as I was taking it. I've read about alexithymia but didn't really consider that I might have it. And those weird bodily sensations...those are the signs of emotions???! ! Come to think of it, there were some occasions on which I suddenly began sweating heavily and wondered why without ever connecting it to the fact that I was on a date or going some place where I felt uncomfortable.
