Schizoid Personality Disorder

Those with schizoid personality disorder may be uninterested in developing and maintaining personal relationships, preferring to spend time on their own. Having distant, cold or neglectful caregivers during childhood may contribute to the development of this disorder.

People with schizoid personality disorder commonly show little emotion, have difficulty expressing anger and appear aloof and passive. They may not seem to enjoy most activities, including dating. It's not unusual for these people to remain single, and they may show little interest in having sexual relations.3Schizoid Personality Disorder (ScPD) By Andrew Skodol, et al. ‘Schizoid Personality Disorder (ScPD) - Psychiatric Disorders.’ Merck Manuals Professional Edition, Merck Manuals, www.merckmanuals.com/professional/psychiatric-disorders/personality-disorders/schizoid-personality-disorder-scpd
