What if it adversely affects someone else?

Yes, good point. Let us expand the notion of "you" to include those around you. That could be an indicator of some sort of disorder that might need investigating.

I'm thinking the set of people that fit that defintion is rather large.

Yeah, it can be pretty big, depending on where you live. I think for hermits, it's not so much a problem as it is for somebody who lives in, say, Hong Kong.
