Schizoid
SCHIZOID describes people who are uninterested in social attachment. SCHIZOTYPAL people have both diminished capacity for relationships and peculiar patterns of thought, including magical thinking, odd beliefs, odd perceptual experiences, and subtle, low grade abnormalities of thought form. Mistrust, projection, and the attribution of malevolence are all elements of PARANOIA, which may be either psychotic, implying a break from reality, or nonpsychotic, as in personalty disorder.
