    Hello guys, I hope you're all doing well.

    I sort of hesitated about the idea of posting my experience here but I decided to do so. I sort of think that I have been a schizoid my entire life. I just didn't know what it was called until my therapist confirmed it. Parents have been struggling with believing that their...

    Is This Me, Or Am I Alone?

    I've always felt like avoiding others because I get disappointed or don't particularly have any interest to what they are saying. I don't know if I am a schizoid, but it seems like every personality quiz I take on the net I always get this answer. I read the wiki info, and it...

    It's Not Just A Phase, Is It?

    I have always felt like whatever I was experiencing was just a part of growing up. Then, when I was a teenager, I still thought that this is just a phase. Now, I am reaching 40, and things do not look so good when it comes to my job and my marriage and everything else that...

    I get absolutely NO enjoyment out of being a

    Not Just...

    Not only am I a Schizoid, but I'm also a sociopath.  I've got absolutely no interest in the vast majority of people, beyond what I can manipulate them for.   I've met plenty of sociopaths who find themselves liking people, and complicating their lives...
