Diagnostic criteria[edit]

With regard to the discussion at Talk:Narcissistic personality disorder#No permission to reprint DSM critera, I've removed the cut-and-pasted diagnostic criteria from this page as copyright violations. Those responsible for the DSM-IV, at any rate, have refused us permission to quote them. The excised text appears at the links in the references section. Vashti 02:53, 8 February 2006 (UTC)

DSM4 or ICD10 names?[edit]

Wikipedia is based in the US, so it uses the DSM-IV names for things, not the ICD10 names. I've reverted and moved the page back. Vashti 06:53, 26 December 2006 (UTC)

No we don't have a use US names policy. We use the most common name. See Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style#National_varieties_of_English amongst other things. Secretlondon 15:44, 2 September 2007 (UTC)
Sob, and it seemed like such a good theory. I'm pretty certain this is still the most common name, though. Vashti 19:48, 2 September 2007 (UTC)

Link to Schizophrenia?[edit]

What, if any, link is there between Schizotypal personality disorder and Schizophrenia? 24.107.65.232 (talk) 04:17, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

They're on a continuum, with schizophrenia being severe and StPD being moderate. However, this isn't a discussion page. Vashti (talk) 09:56, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

Creativity and Schizophrenia[edit]

I would think some mention of the links between schizotypy and creativity, and links between schizotypy and schizophrenia would be fully appropriate for the article. I'm not a specialist in this area but a quick google scholar search reveals there is a good amount of peer-reviewed literature available on both topics. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 97.81.98.160 (talk) 20:19, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

Have a look over at Schizotypy; that discussion may be more appropriate there. :) Vashti (talk) 17:59, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

External Links[edit]

Added a new link to a link collection of resources for Schizotypal Disorder. It was removed by the bot because it's part of a blog. Please take a look and see if you think it's appropriate. For the record, it's not my blog, I just found the link collection very helpful when looking for info. KarlaJohansen (talk) 15:05, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

Looks good to me. Thanks. :) Vashti (talk) 19:47, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

Copyright problems with diagnostic criteria[edit]

The American Psychiatric Association has not released its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders into public domain, but claims copyright. The Wikimedia Foundation has received a letter of complaint (Ticket:2010030910040817, for those with access) about the use of their diagnostic criteria in this and a number of other articles. Currently, this content is blanked pending investigation, which will last approximately one week. Please feel free to provide input at the copyright problems board listing during that time. Individuals with access to the books would be particularly welcome in helping to conduct the investigation. Assistance developing a plan to prevent misuse of the APA's material on Wikipedia projects would also be welcome. Thank you. Moonriddengirl (talk) 13:54, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Points to Consider[edit]

Conventionality varies from culture to culture, and "schizotypal" is a highly biased diagnosis. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 174.93.64.94 (talk) 03:31, 7 June 2010 (UTC)

Treatment[edit]

Someone needs to add a section on treatment to this article, I'd say. 58.111.224.202 (talk) 15:58, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

Yes! WHERE is the treatment section on this one? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.79.135.74 (talk) 03:12, 11 September 2012 (UTC)

i went ahead and added a "treatment" section to this article....however, I lifted it wholesale from here: http://www.minddisorders.com/Py-Z/Schizotypal-personality-disorder.html

if someone can clean this up a little, I would appreciate it. Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.79.135.32 (talk) 16:52, 23 September 2012 (UTC)

"lift it wholesale from" sounds to me as a clear case of copyright violation. Please rewrite everything, otherwise it needs to go. Lova Falk talk 17:31, 23 September 2012 (UTC)
When clear copyright violations are introduced to article, please just go ahead and revert them. That saves other sites from copying the content, increasing damages to the source. Thanks. :) --Moonriddengirl (talk) 17:21, 16 December 2012 (UTC)

Etymology[edit]

According to this book, Sandor Rado coined the term as a condensation of schizophrenic phenotype, not genotype.

Anyone know any more about this? Zchahe7 (talk) 18:06, 8 February 2013 (UTC)

Revert[edit]

Reverted to https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Schizotypal_personality_disorder&oldid=549637340 from 4/10/13.

Reasons for reverting: poor content added, reads amateurish; lacking professional tone, incorrect symptoms listed for SPD without citations, broad gender-based generalizations without citations, numerous grammatical errors, etc. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 50.7.33.186 (talkcontribs) 11:21, 20 April 2013‎

Thank you! I fully agree with you. One minor remark though. If you revert, please write in the Edit summary either why you did it, or write that you will comment this on the talk page, so everybody can see that you have a reason and you're not vandalizing. With friendly regards, Lova Falk talk 11:33, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

WHO ICD11 Beta Draft: Schizotypal disorder[edit]

ID : http://id.who.int/icd/entity/18178000

http://apps.who.int/classifications/icd11/browse/f/en#/http%3a%2f%2fid.who.int%2ficd%2fentity%2f18178000

Causes[edit]

The reference to the development of schizotypal traits during childhood is ambiguous, as is the source. Should it removed altogether? Jafxi (talk) 10:36, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

Hi Jafxi , I don't know exactly which sentence and source you mean. Mayo clinic is a good source. Lova Falk talk 11:03, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

The statement: "Rates of schizotypal personality disorder are much higher in relatives of individuals with schizophrenia than … in people without mentally ill relatives." seems to me to go without saying. 50.101.8.3 (talk) 19:09, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

Pharmacological treatment[edit]

with regard to the section on pharmacological treatment, I believe it is important to note that STPD is treated using the same medication as schizophrenia including traditional neuroleptics such as haloperidol and thothixene.--Aimansajjad (talk) 03:02, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

I agree with your edit. Lova Falk talk 11:06, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

 Done

Unprofessional Descriptors/Unverifiable Souces[edit]

Reference no. 2 (Comer, Ronald (2014). "Schizotypal Personality Disorder". Abnormal Psychology. MacMillan. p. 406. ISBN 9781464162909.) is broken and is used to back up the statements "Some have a tendency to drift aimlessly and lead an idle, unproductive life." and also "STPD is classified as a cluster A personality disorder ("odd or eccentric disorders") and is considered to be the most impairing disorder in this cluster.". Both statements are quite far-reaching in describing the disorder and are verified by a PDF that links to a 404 not found. I tried to look up the ISBN to look up the page number and only found a PDF from google books whose Table of Contents page number doesn't match the one listed.

Similarly, reference no. 1 (Schacter, Daniel L., Daniel T. Gilbert, and Daniel M. Wegner. Psychology. Worth Publishers, 2010. Print) doesn't include ISBN or page number in an 800 page book and is used to back up the statement "Some have a tendency to drift aimlessly and lead an idle, unproductive life."

I suggest that these references and first statement be removed on grounds of unprofessional overreach of description of the illness, and also to curtail the second statement to merely list its category.
