SnowIf you downloaded this ebook, it is likely that you or someone that you know may have traits of avoidant personality disorder. Or maybe you want to learn more about avoidant personality disorder and its sufferers. You are in the right place. In this book, we will cover the different traits for this disorder, as well as who this disorder affects.
Avoidant Personality Disorder is a set of deficient or negative traits that are pervasive and hinder a person’s full capability to be social and productive in all areas of their life. Many people mistake avoidant personality disorder with schizoid personality disorder, autism, asperger’s disorder, or anti-social personality disorder. Many think that anti-social personality disorder is a kind of social ineptness. Anti-social disorder is actually a pervasive set of personality traits which make a person have problems with authority and criminal problems. They often cannot fit into society. Our prisons are filled with people who have signs of anti-social personality disorder. This disorder is not the same as avoidant personality disorder. Both disorders, however, typically inherit the stereotype of being ‘loners’ even though they are loners for very different reasons.
The traits that are inherent in Avoidant Personality Disorder is a social ineptness and awkwardness that cause a person to avoid others and schedule their activities so that they can be in solitude. Persons with avoidant personality disorder tend to have anxiety attacks and extreme shyness that cause them to feel very uncomfortable around others. They don’t feel like they fit into society, and they struggle to follow social norms. They struggle with school, college, work, and home life because of this discomfort with interacting with others.

The child will display shyness, isolation, or discomfort with new places or people. Often times, children who do exhibit these tendencies grow out of it, but those with the disorder will become even more shy and isolated with age. That clinched it for me. I do not have Avoidant Personality Disorder if it is something that develops in childhood. This is not to say that someone else would not have both autism and Avoidant Personality Disorder at the same time.
As a result of the increased public interest in autism spectrum disorders ASD , certain core manifestations of ASD—impaired social interaction and communication, bizarre interests—are now commonly recognized as being typical of autism, not only in children, but in adults as well. More often than before, general practitioners, neurologists, and psychiatrists find themselves being asked whether a patient is suffering from previously unrecognized Asperger syndrome AS. Little is known about the diagnostic evaluation of AS in adulthood. The autism quotient AQ is now established as a simple but nonspecific screening test. The differential diagnosis includes personality disorders, anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and attention deficit—hyperactivity disorder. The diagnostic assessment should proceed in stepwise fashion, starting from simple screening in primary care and then moving on to evaluation of the suspected diagnosis by a mental health care specialist, followed by extensive further investigation in an outpatient clinic specifically devoted to patients with autism spectrum disorders. The diagnostic assessment of autism in adults requires knowledge of the core and accompanying manifestations of autism and of their differential diagnoses.
