2. Prefers Solitary Activities

While it is normal to enjoy solitary pursuits, people with schizoid personality disorder often lead isolated lives, primarily choosing solitary pursuits to social interactions. For this reason, people with schizoid personality disorder are often viewed as loners or outsiders.

People with schizoid personality disorder may view others as intrusive. They may also believe social interactions are not worth their time or energy. Instead, someone with schizoid personality disorder may withdraw into solitary activities, such as reading, writing or playing video games.
