Schizoid personality disorder has a complicated past. It was originally conceptualized as the personality type associated with schizophrenia. However, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders states that schizoid personality disorder should not be diagnosed if the pattern of behavior occurs exclusively during the course of schizophrenia. But this does not mean that the two cannot co-occur. Schizoid personality disorder most often co-occurs with schizotypal, paranoid, and avoidance personality disorders.

Paranoia and persecutory delusions constitute the symptoms of established disorders such as schizophrenia in clinical population. Paranoia is believed to exist as a continuum within the general population. Paranoia in the subclinical population can be caused due to high levels of emotional variants such as depression, anxiety, fear and a concept of self-awareness in a psychological individual Carvalho et al. Recent studies have focused on the associations between these emotional processes and paranoia. Shame has been extensively entwined with the development of paranoid ideations among individuals Matos et al.
Borderline personality disorder BPD can distort thinking and perception, and when people with BPD are under stress they may experience extreme and disconcerting symptoms of paranoia. The proper term for this condition is paranoid ideation, and it is a complication that many men and women with borderline personality disorder will face at some point in their lives. The good news is that borderline personality disorder and paranoid ideation are both amenable to treatment, as long as the commitment to recovery is strong. People with borderline personality disorder BPD struggle to maintain a healthy and consistent self-image.
A population study on prevalence, incidence, and associated factors, and their relationship to cognitive functioning and prognosis. Psychotic symptoms and paranoid ideation in the non-demented elderly. Background: Psychotic symptoms and paranoid ideation are not commonly reported in non-demented elderly, and may be underrated in traditional epidemiological studies. Aims: The aims of this study are to characterize the incidence and prevalence of psychotic symptoms and paranoid ideation and associated factors; the relationship between neuropsychological performance and psychotic symptoms and paranoid ideation and the prognosis of psychotic symptoms and paranoid ideation in non-demented elderly. Psychotic symptoms that appeared after onset of dementia and during a delirium were not included.
