Misanthropy is the general distrust or hatred of humanity. A person who feels that way is called a misanthrope or misanthropist. Many misanthropes are labeled as hermits and loners. Misanthropic people prefer to be alone, and do not trust many people outside of their immediate family. Some do not trust anyone.
