Schizotypal Personality Disorder

Have you ever heard of this?

Whilst it's not an officially recognized personality disorder, it's acknowledged that it does exist. I'm sure I can think of a few people who fit the Schizotypal category, some of them celebrities.The word 'Schizotypal' comes from the words 'schizophrenic' and 'genotype'. Schizotypals generally have rather odd or unconventional beliefs and are more likely to believe in the paranormal or supernatural. They also tend to dress rather peculiarly and may act strange during conversation - they may ignore something you said as though they have been temporarily 'switched off' for a moment.

  • Well, based on the definition of schizotypal disorder you have mentioned, I don't think I am suffering from this one. Thank you for the information about it though.
