Schizotypal personality and creativity

3 Jul

Some years ago, I did some research on schizotypy and paranormal beliefs in teachers. Through my reading, I found claims that schizotypy might be related to creativity.  Here is a recent post at Deric’s Mind Blog on this topic:

“Park et al. examine individuals with schizotypal personality disorder, which is characterized by need for social isolation, anxiety in social situations, odd behavior and thinking, and often unconventional beliefs, but does not engage the false beliefs, unclear or confused thinking, and auditory hallucinations characteristic of schizophrenia.”
