In brief: Schizoid/schizotypal

Schizoid PD is characterized by an indifference to interpersonal relationships.
They feel they don't need to have relationships and are not lonely. Schizotypal PD is characterized by extremely eccentric thought processes and expression which border on being psychotic, and unkempt, often bizarre physical appearance and dress.
