Klein classifies these individuals as "secret schizoids", who present themselves as socially available, interested, engaged and involved in interacting yet remain emotionally withdrawn and sequestered within the safety of the internal world.Withdrawal or detachment from the outer world is a characteristic feature of schizoid pathology, but may appear either in "classic" or in "secret" form.Donald Winnicott explains this need to modulate emotional interaction by saying that schizoid individuals "prefer to make relationships on their own terms and not in terms of the impulses of other people." Failing to attain that, they prefer isolation.Although there is the belief that people with SPD are complacent and unaware of their feelings, many recognize their differences from others.I am married to a schizoid husband.that comes a lot of challenges....I am not going to elaborate on what schizoid is, because I am sure if you got to this message, you have a good idea of what it entales.
Schizoid personality disorder (SPD) is a personality disorder characterized by a lack of interest in social relationships, a tendency towards a solitary or sheltered lifestyle, secretiveness, emotional coldness, and apathy.It is not people as such that they want to avoid, but emotions both negative and positive, emotional intimacy, and self disclosure.This means that it is possible for schizoid individuals to form relationships with others based on intellectual, physical, familial, occupational, or recreational activities as long as these modes of relating do not require or force the need for emotional intimacy, which the affected individual will reject.A pathological reliance on fantasizing and preoccupation with inner experience (introspection) is often part of the schizoid withdrawal from the world.
Fantasy thus becomes a core component of the self in exile, though fantasizing in schizoid individuals is far more complicated than a means of facilitating withdrawal.I want to find friends that are suffering because of their partners that are schizoid, and want to find out how do you cope, do you cope, how does it affect you, do you see change..you been to therapy.....
