    Are you after the truth about an individual person, or a bunch of stereotypical statements about a group of people which may not even be true?

    Yeap, but the entire "emotional wasteland" and not that much interested in being close to people thing fits me better than everything else here.

    Well, to respond to this in seriousness, if you don't think people can be encompassed in categories, then you reject all physchological typology. That is your choice, but then I'm not sure why you are here. It would sort of put you in Victor's camp.

    Okay. I tried to read the site ^ in more depth, but found it convoluted and difficult to follow. But I read enough to feel like his work warrants more delving, so I wikied him and got this:

    Millon devised a set of widely acknowledged subtypes for each of the DSM personality disorders:[7][8]
    Sadistic personality disorder subtypes
    Self-defeating (masochistic) personality disorder subtypes
    Schizotypal personality disorder subtypes
    Schizoid personality disorder subtypes
    Paranoid personality disorder subtypes
    Antisocial personality disorder subtypes
    Borderline personality disorder subtypes
    Histrionic personality disorder subtypes
    Narcissistic personality disorder subtypes
    Dependent personality disorder subtypes
    Obsessive-compulsive personality disorder subtypes
    Avoidant personality disorder subtypes
    Passive-aggressive (negativistic) personality disorder subtypes
    Depressive personality disorder subtypes
    Exuberant/Hypomanic personality disorder subtypes


    So, he basically took the DSM and made personality types/disorders from psychological diagnoses, I gather. If you click on the OCD one you get these subtypes:

    five subtypes of compulsive.[15][16] Any individual compulsive may exhibit none or one of the following:
    conscientious compulsive - including dependent features
    puritanical compulsive - including paranoid features.
    bureaucratic compulsive - including narcissistic features
    parsimonious compulsive - including schizoid features. Resembles Fromm's hoarding orientation[17]
    bedeviled compulsive - including negativistic (passive-aggressive) features


    It's another take on personality diagnoses, but I still like Jung's interpretations and discoveries better. Millon has taken abnormal and tried to tie normal into it, which doesn't work so well because by default people are normal, not abnormal. I prefer to add to or tweak Jung's theory with a "loop" or "knot" concept to arrive at neurosis or psychosis, or to just plain think about combining Jung's theory with other personality/psychology/cognitive/biological/etc theories to arrive at a more comprehensive personality theory.

    But it's interesting to see all that's out there in personology.

    Shy/Avoidant is probably closest for me; it certainly sums up quite a bit of my youth

    Shy/Avoidant Personality is definitely the best fit.

    Shades of myself in these:
    Pessimistic/Melancholic Personality
    Skeptical/Negativistic Personality
    Eccentric/Schizotypal Personality
    Suspicious/Paranoid Personality

    I had to go with Capricious/Borderline. The part about being uncertain about self image hit the spot.
