I think it’s not a great idea to be a schizoid and create theories that project a schizoid psychology.
I agree with him, particularly in the respect of social theories such as Marx's. That's why when I write I imagine a schizoid reader. Which, by the way, is my hostile, impossible to satisfy superego. That bastard can't stop insulting me when he rewrites my drafts.
Generally speaking, the most intelligent people in the world are introverts, but not even half of them are schizoids. It's clear why schizoidism would contribute to Darwin's and Newton's findings. If you like to read, I suggest you to try Kafka and Fernando Pessoa, two almost archetypical schizoids. I love Kafka; unfortunately, his stories lack a couple of revisions. Pessoa's Book of Disquietude is almost a diary of a patient with SPD.
About Pessoa, I agreed with the following review of a guy from Amazon: "Pessoa calls Prose "The Dark Clouds of My Horizon" and how aptly too. Nobody writes about the human condition, the bleak, despairing but ever beauteous state of our mysterious lives quite the same way as Pessoa. This is existentialism without the bitterness, the anger and ultimately the denial. This is the documentation of a man who pours out his soul to the world without resorting to pathetic calls for sympathy. The usual blend of inane and manufactured pathos that seem to plague everybody else. This is a man, a man of incredible moral courage and spiritual strength, reporting from the depths of his reflections with no pretensions of offering hope or heartwarming, feelgood sentiments. This is, in short, prose (or poetry) of the highest order. This book is not recommended for everybody, only for people who dare to face their lives and live to their fullest potential."
If you like Somerset Maugham, read The Razor's Edge. The guy he based the character of Larry Darrell on, who impressed Maugham so much he wrote a whole book about him, is quite clearly a schizoid. I'd love to hear some thoughts on the matter, but I identified with every decision the character took. In any case, it's a good way of knowing what "normal" people think about us.
EDIT: By the way, great blog.
Godspeed all the bakers at dawn may they all cut their thumbs and bleed into their buns 'till they melt away.
