LOWER VERBAL ABILITY AND THE CONSEQUENCES
by Liam Eddy
Lower verbal ability is due to the structure of the brain. The recognition of feeling occurs in the left hemisphere while the ability to speak is governed in the right. When there is a little cross over between the hemispheres alexithymia is common.
Common in the people who demonstrate alexithymia are executive function defects.
What happens when a person who cannot label their emotions, with little executive function (Impulse control etc), is in a public environment?
Opportunity leads to crime.
Frustration leads to aggression.
ALEXITHYMIA: the inability to identify and describe one’s emotions. Dysfunction in emotional awareness, social attachment, and interpersonal relations.
