Being an AvPD system can mean many things; examples could be:

  • A system that forms members out of a desire for social interaction that they cannot get from others in the shared reality due to a fear of rejection.
  • A system with factives of people they like but cannot bring themselves to approach.
  • A system with members who prefer to spend time in headspace due to the lack of possibilities for judgement.
  • Systems who frequently split in social situations because of their anxiety and insecurities.
