>what's the difference between schizoid and schizoaffective

Beats me, what do you think Errol?
Can't figure it out either...

Schizoid implies being classified under the 'Diagnostic and
Statistical Model - the infamous DSM' as schizophrenic -
schizoaffective - would imply an 'affected' schizoid - someone
who affected to appear that way - multi-personality - or
multi-entity - in real life, generally in response to a
certain situation that the original entity or personality was
unable to handle - eg. small, wimpish person, has another
side - Rambo - that comes out when he gets pressured or stressed
in some way.
