Additional Remarks

Social Anhedonia —

“social anhedonia is not meant to describe enjoyment of solitary activities, normal introversion, or the occasional preference to be alone within the context of healthy social interests (Leary, Herbst, & McCrary, 2003); instead, it represents a traitlike disinterest in social contact, social withdrawal, and diminished pleasure during social situations”
