INTJ + INTP = Schizoid???

I have read about a co-relation of INTJ & INTP in regards to Schizoid personality disorder. I wondered what you all thought of this? I personally am an ENTP, but I can be very introverted at times - maybe more avoidant just because I don't want to be around different people (not because of shyness - I just do not want to interact at all at times) I read about schizoid exhibitionism as well, and that could be a person who would show a more extroverted side to their personality. ENTJ & ENTPs?? Maybe all NTs are really schizoid according to how it is defined. Who defined it anyways? Anyways I was curious as to your thoughts on this.

I have no idea if certain personality types are more likely to have certain personality disorders. I don't think anyone really knows; if you're referring to the site I think you're referring to (don't remember where that is), what they say isn't based on any research at all, and could have just been pulled out of a hat.

I know a good number of INTs (they make up a large portion of my friends list), and none of them are schizoid. (But I was erroneously labeled as such by a quack doctor once. He also thought I was psychotic because I could hear high-pitched noises that he couldn't hear.)
I have schizoid-like qualities & now that I think about it I can relate to people with aspergers (although I am not) Yea I was curious as to where they were getting this information from & how they came to their conclusion of Schizoid.

Oh and that quack doctor sounds lovely - seriously he probably had a hearing problem... but no of course he doesn't have a problem - it is you who have to be psychotic of all things! Good times.
Corelations are not causations. Other than that I don't think psychology is far enough along to give a good answer.
i am a schizoid. i think the intp and intj definitions are awefully vague. i've taken the mbti test only twice and once i was labelled INTP and the other INTJ.
