The subject of the research is the peculiarities of alexithymia demonstrated by teenagers depending on their place of residence (urban or country-side), age, gender, and Academic Grade Average. Glazkova has used the following research methods: review of literary sources, questionnaire (gender, age, place of residence before college, grade average); and Toronto Alexithymia Scale (TAS) as a measure of deficiency in understanding, processing, or describing emotions. The results of the empirical research demonstrate the following: students younger than 16 years old, mainly young men who live in city and have high Academic Grade Average are more inclined to alexithymia. According to the researcher, alexithytmia prevention should include psychological and pedagogical measures.
