I thought I’d changed a lot recently— in terms of my behaviour in social interactions— or the lack of. I think I spend close to 90% of my day on average alone (and also not conversing to cyber people on the net) and not in a self-conversation.  I feel distressed most of the time talking to people (not cyber ones)— I don’t see it as essential and I hate to make an effort to speak. I don’t even like talking to myself.

I think my schizotypal saw a jump, decrease in all of them except for schizotypal and boderline which remained quite the same. I am very happy that the test validated what I thought but it still failed to put it into perspective how I appear to the larger society since my self-awareness-as-compared-to-the-norm function has failed.

Just that, I don’t see all these as disorder. I think they are just personality traits that should not be actively changed.

—————————————————————

Schizoid Personality Disorder – individual generally detached from social relationships, and shows a narrow range of emotional expression in various social settings.

(Author Note:I don’t think Schizoid personality is a valid disorder (read), some of the smartest people in history were schizoid because they occupied a remote end of the intelligence bell curve. Schizotypal personality can encompass highly original thinkers as well as totally insane people so I think it’s a flawed type. I think the remaining eight disorders are generally valid.)

Schizotypal Personality Disorder – individual is uncomfortable in close relationships, has thought or perceptual distortions, and peculiarities of behavior.

Borderline Personality Disorder – individual shows a generalized pattern of instability in interpersonal relationships, self-image, and observable emotions, and significant impulsiveness.
