About Schizoid Personality Disorder (SPD)

(DSM, Axis II, Cluster A: odd disorders. Read more about Personality Disorders:
“Apathetic, indifferent, remote, solitary, distant, humorless. Neither desires nor needs human attachments. Withdrawal from relationships and prefer to be alone. Little interest in others, often seen as a loner. Minimal awareness of feelings of self or others. Few drives or ambitions, if any.”

Is an uncommon condition in which people avoid social activities and consistently shy away from interaction with others. It affects more males than females. To others, they may appear somewhat dull or humorless. Because they don’t tend to show emotion, they may appear as though they don’t care about what’s going on around them.”

Schizoids are very self-sufficient, solo, self-orientated, loners. They have a secret Superiority Complex. They secretly think that they are the best, and will play it down or play dumb. But Schizoid PD is different from Narcissistic PD who believes that they are entitled, and is excessively preoccupied with personal adequacy, power, and vanity, and will brag publicly that they are the best and be condescending.

They live in their own very rich and imaginative fantasy world. Because of this they make highly detailed researchers, scientific theorists, original thinkers, or novelists. They can process and absorb massive amounts of information, data and see patterns where the common mind has no clue (see the above list of Schizoids who were scientists such as Einstein, Isaac Newton, and Stephen Hawking. They are very private and not accessible. Most Schizoids will never let you into their “secret fantasy world”. Looking at them you can’t never tell their PD, Schizoid characteristics are very internal and hard to detect. They are accomplished, independent, and in control. The moment they reveal that they are Schizoid their behaviors will all start to make sense as you connect the dots.

Although they appear very confident, they actually do not know what they want in life or their purpose in life in their early adult years. So they try many different careers and be very productive for short periods but they will job hop. Eventually they will be a “Jack of all trades, and Master of 3-4 expertise”.

If they can share more what’s going on inside with a good confidante and get regular constructive feedback they will can transform their lives to be more meaningful, deeper, and fulfilled. If they can use their Schizoid mind constructively they can literally transform the world through their discoveries and research.

They are more fascinated by objects rather than in relationships as objects are much more safer whereas relationships can be very in your face and very scary for them. The best partner for a Schizoid would be a partner who can give lots and lots of space and time alone. The partner ideally is busy with her/his career or business or travels a lot. But Schizoids ironically want to have company, companionship, close friendship. Deep down Schizoids crave company but in their own private terms. However, I believe that Schizoids can learn to have healthy companion relationships when they learn to let go, trust, communicate what’s in the heart, and enjoy the companionship with their partners.
