137.

I did the scoring myself, and am quite terrible at math. But I ran over it twice and got the same result.

I got 95. However, a lot of these items relate more to social impairment than alexithymia, and a few tap into asexuality as well.

Items 1, 2, 3*, 5, 7*, 8*, 11, 12, 13, 14, 16, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23*, 24, 26, 27, 28, 31, 32*, 34, 35, 36, and 37 are alexithymia-specific.

Items 4, 9, 10, 15, 18, 29, 30 and 33 also relate to poor social skills, and

Items 6, 17 and 25 also relate to asexuality

On the alexithymia specific questions, I got a score of 52 out of a possible range of 26-130, indicating an average item score of 2

On the social skills questions, I got a score of 28 out of a possible range of 8-40, indicating an average item score of 3.5

On the asexuality items, I got a score of 15 out of a possible range of 3-15, indicating that I got a score of 5 on all three items.

For the test as a whole, the minimum score is 37 and the maximum is 185, with a cutoff of 94. Therefore, meeting the cutoff would mean an average item score of 2.54.

I fall short of that cutoff on the alexithymia-specific items, while getting far over that threshold on the social skills and asexuality items.

So, I'm asexual and autistic, but not alexithymic, despite scoring above cutoff on the alexithymia scale.

I can't remember if I took this before but I got 148. (edit: I did a search and got 139 over a year ago.)

I think a couple of the questions confuse me.

"I often ask other people what they would feel if in my personal situation (any situation), as this better helps me understand what to do."

"I like it when someone describes the feelings they experience under circumstances similar to my own, because this helps me see what my own feelings might be."

Shouldn't strongly disagree here give 5 points, not 1? I picked strongly disagree with both of those because someone else telling me what they feel has nothing to do with what I feel and wouldn't help me know what to do or understand my feelings. Just because they feel a certain way doen't mean I would. I think I may be interpreting these questions different than they intended.

I got an 82.
Which makes sense since I have been in environments conducive to exploring emotions. My mom was a psych professional, and I have been involved in 12 step programs off and on for 25 years.

I'm always take online, analytical tests like this with a grain of salt. Really, how can one evaluate human emotion with a logical process?

146. I've been reading up on this recently and am pretty sure there is a connection between it and some of the health issues I've been having over the last year, but I'm not really sure what to do about it.
