Data in ‘The Schizoid Man’
@previous anon: actually, reduced affect/emotional capability isn't the defining point of szpd. the defining point is the complete lack of desire for relationships/contentment with isolation. you can be schizoid and have regular emotions (provided you fit 4 or more of the other criteria and they significantly affect your life), it's just not as common. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ personally cant relate to overwhelming emotions in general but it happens, espec w/ comorbidity.
