Extractions: The Schizoid Personality Disorder (SPD) Essential Feature According to the DSM-IV (1994, p. 638), the essential feature of the schizoid personality disorder "e;is a pervasive pattern of detachment from social relationships and a restricted range of expression of emotions in interpersonal settings."e; These individuals appear to lack a desire for intimacy. They spend time alone and select activities that do not include interaction with others. The ICD-10 (1994, p. 225) describes the schizoid personality disorder as "e;characterized by withdrawal from affectional, social and other contacts, with a preference for fantasy, solitary activities and introspection. There is a limited capacity to express feelings and to experience pleasures."e; Millon & Davis (1996, p. 217) describe the SPD as the "e;asocial"e; pattern characterized by a deficiency in the ability to experience pleasure. Kalus (1995, p. 58) believes that the schizoid personality disorder is distinguished by the predominance of negative symptoms associated with the schizophrenia spectrum disorders, i.e., social, interpersonal, and affective deficits without psychotic-like cognitive/perceptual distortions.

Extractions: Personality disorders are long standing patterns of maladaptive behavior. The personality disorders are when a person uses improper and immature ways to deal with problems or situations. People with this type of disorder do not feel like they are doing anything wrong and therefore do not want to change thier behavior like people with anxiety disorders. There are 11 major personality disorders defined by the DSM-III. These include: Antisocial Personality Disorder, Avoidant Personality Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, Dependent Personality Disorder, Histrionic Personality Disorder, Narcissistic Personality Disorder, Obsessive- Compulsive Personality Disorder, Paranoid Personality Disorder, Schizoid Personality Disorder, and Schizotypal Personality Disorder. This disorder is characterized by the careless disregard for the rights of others. It can be recognized by several symptoms. Someone with an antisocial personality is usually deceitful and is remorseless. Other symptoms include the reckless disregard of saftey-both of him/herself and of others, a large irritability and aggressiveness coupled with impulsiveness. Most antisocial personalities also fail to conform to social norms. Individuals with this disorder feel inadequate, have great sensitivity to what others think and say about them, and are socially impotent. This disorder is characterized by someone who is terribly reluctant to take personal risks or try new things because they may be embarrassed. Avoidant personalities don't like to get involved in intimate relationships, constantly think about being criticized or rejected, and see themselves as socially inept and inferior.
Paranoia Paranoia that is symptomatic of paranoid schizophrenia, delusional disorder, or paranoid personality disorder should be treated by a psychologist and/or http://www.ehendrick.org/healthy/001021.htm
Extractions: Resources Paranoia is an unfounded or exaggerated distrust of others, sometimes reaching delusional proportions. Paranoid individuals constantly suspect the motives of those around them, and believe that certain individuals, or people in general, are "out to get them." Paranoid perceptions and behavior may appear as features of a number of mental illnesses, including depression and dementia , but are most prominent in three types of psychological disorders: paranoid schizophrenia , delusional disorder (persecutory type), and paranoid personality disorder (PPD). Individuals with paranoid schizophrenia and persecutory delusional disorder experience what is known as persecutory delusions : an irrational, yet unshakable, belief that someone is plotting against them. Persecutory delusions in paranoid schizophrenia are bizarre, sometimes grandiose, and often accompanied by auditory hallucinations . Delusions experienced by individuals with delusional disorder are more plausible than those experienced by paranoid schizophrenics; not bizarre, though still unjustified. Individuals with delusional disorder may seem offbeat or quirky rather than mentally ill, and, as such, may never seek treatment. Persons with paranoid personality disorder tend to be self-centered, self-important, defensive, and emotionally distant. Their paranoia manifests itself in constant suspicions rather than full-blown delusions. The disorder often impedes social and personal relationships and career advancement. Some individuals with PPD are described as "litigious," as they are constantly initiating frivolous law suits. PPD is more common in men than in women, and typically begins in early adulthood.

The suspiciousness may be expressed by overt argumentativeness, recurrent complaining, or hostile aloofness. While individuals with a paranoid personality disorder may appear "e;cold,"e; objective, and rational, they more frequently display hostile, stubborn, and sarcastic affect.
