I wonder if people who shy away from intimacy with themselves or others would try to not be aware that they do so. Avoidance might be easier if you just stay away from self-reflection and questioning, or from analyzing anything too deeply.
My boyfriend describes himself as liking to be intuitive, rather than putting things into words. And maybe that is how he's most comfortable, or even feels most connected. But I think that sometimes its also a way of avoiding facing contradictions or unpleasant conclusions.
