Expert Counseling Help for a Schizoid Personality
Schizoid personality issues often start in childhood. Many children learn how to become comfortable with being alone. While initially they often find activities to distract themselves from thinking about their loneliness, they may claim later that they occupy themselves with solitary activities out of boredom or to pass time. Sometimes being neglected as a child can result in a wounded spirit where we see ourselves as unloved and unlovable and the treatment as an invalidation of our worth. While females can develop features of a schizoid personality it is more prevalent in males. Men naturally tend to give less importance to relationships than women do but the schizoid person takes being a loner to excessive levels. Conceivably schizoid personality difficulties could also be due to biological causes similar to autism or other pervasive childhood developmental disorders. hich cause us to try new hairdos, the latest fashions, sag our pants or get tattoos in order to get people to notice us.
