Please don't confuse the symptoms of emotional numbing and dissociation that go with along with DP for this alexithymia shit. I'm tired of people worrying about stuff like this and blindly self-diagnosing. Sure DP has a ton of symptoms that overlap with with many other disorders and problems, but this is only going to make you go in endless circles.

I'll take it down if you want me to.

I did not score high on this at all. I still am an emotional and sympathetic person despite DP, I just can't feel it properly like I used to...I have no doubt that I haven't changed from being a caring person or feeling emotions, it just seems that way to me internally.

I didn't score high, which is confusing as I thought I couldn't feel my emotions much at all, but maybe I actually do.

I know this is old, but I just stumbled across alexithymia, and came here to see if anyone else can relate. I scored a 132 on the test, but I don't think it's dp related. This is more of a personality trait than a symptom of a condition, though DP certainly doesn't help. I'm pretty sure I've been alexithymic my whole life. Now that I know what it is I think it's something I can work on.

I scored 119, but my problem with this test is that for many questions I just didn't know what to answer... like imagination, gut feeling ( I feel like I have none), yet before my emotions and a gut feeling was something I was using a lot when deciding about anything. It's like a different person taking the quiz now, and I dont know what to do :(
