This was so fun, but it took SO long. xD
People with schizoid personality disorder avoid relationships and do not show much
emotion. Unlike avoidants, schizoids genuinely prefer to be alone and do not secretly
wish for popularity. They tend to seek jobs that require little social contact. Their
social skills are often weak and they do not show a need for attention or acceptance.
They are perceived by others as humorless and distant and often are termed "loners."
People with histrionic personality disorder are constant attention seekers. They need
to be the center of attention all the time, often interrupting others in order to
dominate the conversation. They use grandiose language to discribe everyday events
and seek constant praise. They may dress provacatively or exaggerate illnesses in
order to gain attention. Histrionics also tend to exaggerate friendships and
relationships, believing that everyone loves them. They are often manipulative.
Avoidant personality disorder is characterized by extreme social anxiety. People with
this disorder often feel inadequate, avoid social situations, and seek out jobs with
little contact with others. Avoidants are fearful of being rejected and worry about
embarassing themselves in front of others. They exaggerate the potential difficulties
of new situations to rationalize avoiding them. Often, they will create fantasy
worlds to substitute for the real one. Unlike schizoid personality disorder,
avoidants yearn for social relations yet feel they are unable to obtain them. They
are frequently depressed and have low self-confidence.
^Boy, that shows I have different personalities. XD
