Default Re: Difference between social anxiety and AvPD?

A psychiatrist describes the difference in a youtube video released today. Search for it, I can't post links.
He said the difference is "forming vs performing." AvPD means someone has trouble forming relationships and SA means someone has difficulty performing in social situations. It's the most succinct distinction I've ever heard.
