What is Schizoid Personality Disorder?

January 23, 2020

Schizoid personality disorder is not the same thing as schizophrenia, although it is a Cluster A personality disorder, which is in the eccentric personality disorder category. Some people with schizoid personality choose jobs that help them work by themselves. Schizoid people make their lives reclusive by not getting married as well as having a need to avoid people. Schizoids do not have close relationships with family. I’d have to say I’m not schizoid at all, because I like having relationships when I do not feel tired. Schizoids are aloof when they show little emotion, while not reacting to either criticism or praise. They have vivid inner lives, although they can get depressed. Medication is one way to treat schizoid personality disorder along with therapy.
