OK, I'm only 8 minutes into your video and I already have heard some very bad stereotyping and wrong information. I was dx'ed with AvPD this week via computer testing and a psychologist. You said that we DON'T want any social interaction- that is a stereotype and you're not helping us AvPDs out at all by letting it remain on the video. Yes, there are people out there like that; but we also often "crave" deep meaningful relationships; but we just can't seem to let ourselves get that close. So- you see- there's more than one type of AvPD out there. I happen to be a writer so I connected with your J.D.S. story. You said he didn't want to do any interviews or have any attention. OK, that's cool- that's HIM. That's not ALL of us! I'd be popping my Xanax, while talking to my shrink right before I went onstage for an interview! Am I still a AvPD because I would want that? Yes. Also, you said that we are "ok" with being like we are. That's a false statement. Not all of us are ok with feeling so socially inept. A lot of us KNOW that there is a wrong piece in our puzzle and wish that we could be more socially comfortable because it would make life easier (going to work for one thing!). However, you're partially correct when you say we are "ok" with being like we are, because at times, perhaps many times, we are just fine with it and prefer our own company. But, I'm finding your video, so far, to be in the realm of Black and White thinking. You're not taking in the full spectrum and that will lead anyone who isn't smart enough to question things with false information.
