Lack of trust

Postby Hurricane » Fri May 17, 2013 6:39 pm

Is it possible to develop schizoid personality traits after being repeatedly let down or betrayed by others? So at first willing to give someone a chance but after being let down by so many people, switch off from people all together and learn to appreciate own company and not that of others because they are good for nothing and think that everyone is not worth your time because they will only hurt you so why bother

Maybe. I know personally that my general lack of trust and suspicion toward others tends to reinforce and vindicate my behavioral tendencies.

Is it possible? I don't know, I don't believe that has been my own personal experience which is all I really know.

That said, I do get angry about betrayal and I tend not to want to betray people. I have trouble trusting people because even when they fully believe that they are trustworthy and deserving of trust, they are often easily divorced of that notion when something tests them.

I think it's quite possible. I know that I developed some major trust issues over the course of my childhood, especially where my family is concerned. I do think its a kind of a cycle though. I wait longer and longer to ask for help when I have a problem, the problems become more urgent, and when people aren't able to come through it becomes even harder to trust people again.

Yes, I think so. I can't see why not. Especially if at first you're too trusting and naive.

Yeah, though it depends on the person and the circumstances.

My experience has led me past the breaking point and people really have to prove themselves to me to earn my trust and don't get a second chance. Even if they earn my trust, its a thinly veiled one. I'm that messed up and tired of being betrayed/double-crossed/etc.

I don't think it is a cause proper, but it is part of the symptoms. It can reinforce a social aversion that is already there. Not trusting people is not normal to start with, so it cannot be a first cause.

Is it possible... why not?

I suppose before people tried to label things they would have just said "xyz has withdrawn into him/her self since ... happened." Removing the label makes the answer seem more obvious.
