Can Alex be inherited?
Do most people with Alex experience the anger and not the other emotions?

I do not know what the science says, However is autism is inheritable and a lot of folk on the spectrum are alexithymic then alexiness can be inherited or rather there is a higher likelihood that the children will have it if the parents have it. It not sure fire.

Anger is not an emotion I particularly feel it is rather others

Alexithymia can't be inherited... Therefore someone with alexithymia will educate their children a different way then people with normal emotions. Alexithymia can be caused by many things including depression and anxiety, also it's mostly why people are seen as psychopath (even tho they aren't) and that psychopathy can be "inhereted" which is false. It's all about the education when the children are growing (specially in teenage years they learn how and what they feel).

Hopes that helps

While it may be the case that alexithymia cant be inherited, autism does seem to have an inheritable aspect. Given that a lot of people with autism have alexithymia there is a way of looking at it which would say that alexithymia is inherited.

However, i would defer to those with more expert knowledge than I

Alexithymia - emotional blindness - is a personality trait characterized by the inability to identify and describe emotions in the self. Core characteristics of alexithymia are marked dysfunction in emotional awareness, social attachment, and interpersonal relationship.
Alexithymia is prevalent in approximately 10% of the general population and is known to be comorbid with a number of psychiatric conditions. Due the inability to cope with feelings and emotions as described in psychology there are counseling services to establish mental health.
Psychologist have argued that the alexithymia construct is strongly related to the concepts of psychological mindedness and emotional intelligence.
