When I heard this clip from a radio show, it jumped out at me. I think alot of us here are schizoids rather than social anxious


I looked up the traits of schizoids and I definitely have many of them

hmmm, interesting. some of the symptoms do ring a bell. TBH, I never really considered it, even when the symptoms were mentioned in class one day.

its alot like social anxiety except one difference.. the psychosis or whatever.
if you dont have hallucinations or feel paranoid etc the main symptoms of schizophrenia, then your not schizoid.. you have to have the psychosis AND the other side effects to be schizoid.. you cant have a schizophrenia free schizophrenia spectrum disorder

i hate those psychiatric diagnosis labels. Introverted doesn't necessarily mean schizoid

Dr. Drew said this guy was cold in his affect.. i didn't get that impression from him.. did you guys?

Yeah, I don't think it sticks... the guy sounded pretty lively to me.

Though the doctor has the advantage here, he's actually talking to the patient face to face. All we get is an audio recording.

those two guys commenting sound like *** holes. They could have gave their opinion in a much nicer and friendlier way which is ironic because they were accusing him of being unemotional and distant. I have that fear of sounding distant, unemotional, bored, uninteresting but I think those are symptoms of our high anxiety, it's not who we really are.

I think I might be schizoid too. Sometimes I'm not really that anxious, but I still can't connect with people in any meaningful way. I'm very boring, cold, distant, rigid, aloof and odd. I do get anxious though in social situations a lot too. It just depends.

Either way, whatever I have has made me a complete loner with no social life whatsoever. Though sometimes I wonder if I'm like this by choice (schizoid) or I want to have friends but can't due to SA. I really don't know.

On a side note I'm nothing like the guy in the video. I could never run my own business or anything like that. That would cause me way too much stress.

One psychiatrist I went to diagnosed me as Schizoid. He reminded of it every time I saw him.

I disagreed with him because Schizoids LOVE to be alone. They prefer being alone and they don't feel lonely when they're alone. They don't want friends or social contact. I want the social contact but SA gets in my way. Big difference.

No, no, no. Schizoid is NOT the same as Schizophrenia. Schizophrenics hallucinate and have very disjointed thinking patterns. Schizoids just avoid all social contact. They don't hallucinate and they think normally. They just don't want to socialize with anyone.

That's exactly the way a Schizophrenic would talk---very disjointed thoughts.
A hebephrenic schizophrenic at least. I seem to get worryingly disorganised thought patterns quite frequently, but not to the intensity or lack of control manifested by that Madisonyang person. :|

imo it's just labels, that won't necessarily help. psychological analysis through professional support will help. I've been told I'll get diagnosed with e.g. BPD, schizoid, bipolar.. because that rough guide seems to be, generally, all a professional can tell from a few sessions.

more to the point: it would be healthy to point out mental illnesses are just ways of categorizing the individual patterns of behavior people develop. None of it is even "mental illness" until it's compared with modern society and what's acceptable and so on. Sometimes people will just happen to have needs that change who they are, and of course they won't fit into stereotypes because people are individuals and that's what makes life interesting at all.
