In brief: Avoidance

The key feature of apd is a longstanding tendency to be socially inhibited, feelings of inadequacy, and high sensitivity to perceived or real criticism that leads a person to avoid soical contact when possible because of those concerns.
It causes impairment both in work situations and in interpersonal relationships.
