Alexithymia (quite literally ‘without words for emotions’) is a psychological construct present in 10% of the population.  It varies in severity among individuals.  Alexithymic people have difficulty understanding, processing and verbalising their own feelings and sensations, and recognising or understanding the emotions of others.
