An AvPD System is a system created, affected, or influenced by Avoidant Personality Disorder. If it is specifically an origin, the term avoidagenic may also be used.[1]

Being an AvPD system can mean many things; an example 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, introjects factive versions of people they like but cannot bring themselves to approach, prefers to spend time in headspace due to the lack of possibilities for judgement, and frequently splits in social situations because of their anxiety and insecurities.

Other examples of PD systems are BPD systems (Borderline Personality Disorder), DPD systems (Dependent Personality Disorder), NPD systems (Narcissistic Personality Disorder), and HPD systems (Histrionic Personality Disorder).

AvPD systems may sometimes be isolgenic or solumgenic, if they formed from loneliness or isolation. They may also be traumagenic, as certain types of trauma are a risk factor for AvPD.
