For anyone studying this for a PhD or whatever....

To me, the question for a PhD thesis or whatever should be:
Paid Research Opportunity
Is this "affliction" or trait the result of:
A. Organic (born with it)
B. The result of an injury
C. The result of emotional trauma
For me, it could be B or C. I believe it's C, but my Mom told me that when I was born, the doctor used forceps and the forceps flattened the top of my head down to my eyebrows. Mom said my head popped back into shape in two days. But I sometimes wonder if that incident caused me some sort of brain injury which wasn't initially noticeable. I was a bright kid and did well in school so no problems there..... (except History, I hated memorizing stuff that had no point to me.....)

Wish I could....
I'm studying traits of alexithymia for my Master's thesis, and I would agree with your post! If you (or anybody else reading this!) are interested in participating in some paid reserach, I would be thrilled to have you come into the lab.
I'm at King's College in London, UK and can be reached at email@example.com

wish I could, but I'm in the US.
I think it's A. for my part. I could never understand or explain my own feelings ever since the time I was a child, and the way my father talked sbout his feelings, he probably had the same problem.
I'm in Norway, so participating in any research would probably only be possible online.
Be sure to see a professional instead of self-diagnosis.
