When is antisocial a personality disorder? Antisocial and Introversion are often mixed up but are truly worlds apart.
Individuals with an antisocial personality disorder lack a conscience, lack respect for other people’s rights, feelings and needs. If you simply prefer to be by yourself and avoid social situations but have great respect for other people’s rights, feelings and needs, you are probably an introvert.
Introverts need alone time to recharge their inner batteries. They dislike small talk, especially with strangers. They often feel stronger and have a lot of empathy.
