Something else parked for future thought. http://www.alexithymia.us/test-alex.html I think the angle brackets show the thresholds. For each area between non and affected.

Externally-Oriented Thinking: 24 Points <18 - 21>
In this category you show high alexithymic traits.

Problematic Interpersonal Relationships: 21 Points <15 - 18>
In this category you show high alexithymic traits.

Difficulty Describing Feelings: 15 Points <10 - 12>
In this category you show high alexithymic traits.

Difficulty Identifying Feelings: 17 Points <15 - 18>
In this category you show some alexithymic traits.

Sexual Difficulties and Disinterest: 12 Points <10 - 12>
In this category you show some alexithymic traits.

Restricted Imaginative Processes: 12 Points <18 - 21>
In this category you show no alexithymic traits.

Vicarious Interpretation of Feelings: 7 Points <8 - 9>
In this category you show no alexithymic traits.

It's an odd blend. I understand what's going on for other people well enough. But am more clueless when it comes to my own stuff. And this externally oriented thinking is a surprise. For someone spending the majority of their life in a daydream. [Which, also, is vividly imaginative.]

We think too much and feel too little.
 More than machinery, we need humanity.
 More than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness.
