Alexithymia and Asexuality
2017-07-15
I found this topic on reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/asexuality/comments/6hd8a6/asexualitys_relationship_to_alexithymia/

It appears that someone who is asexual without alexithymia, their results may bias the questionnaire slightly in the affirmative direction. This idea would predict that an asexual person without alexithymia would score high on the "lack of sexual interests" section, but low on the other sections.

Can a person have Alexithymia and separately be asexual? Is it possible this is not a good metric for the questionnaire?

Yes I believe so, you can have Alexi and be asexual. Why not? We're all a bit different.
Speaking from another asexual.

Alexithymia - emotional blindness - is a personal trait which affects roughly 10% of the population.

Alexithymia describes the difficulty of people to perceive and describe emotions of others and themselves. Most persons concerned are not aware about this deficit and usually they are just recognizing it in contact with others, especially close friends, within their family or their partner.

These pages should deliver additional information about Alexithymia and offer information for affected persons, relatives and generally interested people.
