Alexithymia and Schizoid Personality Disorder


Alexithymia and Schizoid Personality Disorder
Can alexithymia be directly linked to Schizoid personality disorder?

My alexithymia test result is 130. I have schizoid disorder since at least I was a teen.(can't remember/know exact time). I find some of the symptoms really similar to each other but it's just a personal opinion of mine.

I wonder if there are other people here who have both Alexi and Schizoid disorder.
I also have schizoid PD. I got a score of 174 on the test which I wasn't surprised with. Schizoid and alexithymia are very similar. However, schizoid focuses more on the negative effects of the schizophrenia.

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.
