Is it possible for a persone to be half social phobic and half schizoid


I mean I'm affected by social anxiety disorder, but I'm not interested in relations, in particular I don't want a girlfriend or long-time relation (neither short-time relations). I prefer to live on my own, and nobody should bother me. There is also the possibility that my condition of life make me become like this but I think that also before I wasn't really interested in relationships.
Even as regards being cold and distant I'm pretty similar to schizoid, so I don't know. What do you think about it? Could a person be a mix?
I'm not sure if this is the right section to post my question.

I have a diagnosis of both Generalized Social Anxiety Disorder and Schizoid Personality Disorder, so there is a possibility you have both disorders.

Honestly, sounds like me. Nobody has ever suggested schizoid to me, although its certainly something I have considered. In fact my anxieties pretty much stem from the fact I might have to interact with people and do normal stuff, this isn't so much because I am scared of them (though that is there as well to a degree) its more a kind of loathing to have to be like everyone else and do things I simply see no value in doing. My perspective is certainly very different from the 'I want to be normal' posts I see on here.

The only problem I have with schizoid for myself, and the reason I probably am not, is the 'insensitivity to criticism' stuff. I am very sensitive to criticism, and I am def affected by good and bad news.

I am also not particularly convinced about personality disorders in general anyway, it seems that basing a diagnosis entirely on 'difference from the average' is a rather intellectually weak justification.

Well, i'm sensitive to criticism too and I add that I have a schizoid characteristic that is to maintain a certain distance. As regards relations, I'm not interested, but I could find it nice to see a single person rarely in a bar and just talking about recent news. I have not the way of a schizoid when I talk, now I seem a normal person. This is due partially to the fact that I did exposure exercises and even attending university I changed, keeping to stay alone but without inferiory complex(just a choice). So i'm a lot confused, maybe I should stop to label myself with so many labels and focus on contents.

I think the title applies to me. I don't get lonely, ever. I've never even tried to find a mate, though I'm getting interested now. And I do get anxious about some social situations.
