130 points. "High alexithymic traits" in every category except "Sexual Difficulties and Disinterest" where I apparently display no alexithymic traits whatsoever. I think that might be an exaggeration, but not completely off base.

I'm not really surprised. I've always had difficulty relating to my own emotions, especially after childhood.

I think my results are simply indicative of the overlap with asperger's rather than indicating alexithymia:

I scored 146. :oops:

I didn't realize that 'checking in' with someone else to see if they know what I'm feeling or what I'm supposed to be feeling (because I know that I should feel differently than I often feel or I can sense something is going on but I have no idea what) was symptomatic of a disorder.

My therapist keeps asking me how I know when I'm tense (the answers are when I can't move my arms properly, when I've ripped a muscle in my legs or when it feels like cold water is climbing my body)--I guess I didn't realize that this reaction is unusual. I thought everyone's emotions were expressed in their body, and less in their 'feels'.

I have a vivid imagination, but this doesn't stop me from having some of the other symptoms. I guess I think it's a little weird that imagining things is supposed to be emotional.

I do get very, very tired of being told I don't care by friends and/or lovers--if I didn't care, I wouldn't be actively pursuing a relationship with that person (and putting up with their exhausting crap, and altering the way I do things because they need me to do more of x or less of y.)

I scored 124.
Wow, it's really high. Too high for me IMO.
It's true that I can't describe my feelings well, I need a lot of time to identify some, I can't understand other people's feelings well and the sexual relationships stuff makes me uncomfortable (this last point might be just due to the fact I am 16) but I don't think I have alexithymia because I rely on my emotion/gut feelings a lot, I try to explore and identify the emotion I am feeling at a due moment very much, I have an excellent imagination and I daydream and dream a lot.

I clicked the wrong poll button >.>

Anyway, I got 113. The results seem pretty accurate, although the questions were odd to me. I found myself having some trouble answering a few of them. Ah, well.

I had to put undecided for a lot of them, esp the sex related ones because I have no experience with it, so that could have skewed the results somewhat.

91.

But then I have had 20 years of Cognitive Behavior Therapy, along with many years of daily twelve-step group meetings. So I am heartened by the thought that some of that may have helped.

I took the test again just to see if it would change much. It did not change too much from the first time.
Here are the results of the second time.
