Altered personality and behaviour of the person with brain injury can lead to social isolation and loss of social relationships. Friends and neighbors' lack of understanding about brain injury can also impact social realtionships, as friends and neighbors may think that the person with a brain injury is 'too stubborn' or 'too sensitive', has gone 'crazy' or 'out of his mind', just simply 'has something wrong with', and may be 'dangerous' or 'violence' to others. These negative feedbacks can cause persons with a brian injury to isolate themselves and withdraw from or avoid social interactions deliberately.
