While two factors are currently thought to underlie individual differences in schizotypal personality, three factors may best explain schizotypal traits. This study used confirmatory factor analysis to assess five competing models of schizotypal personality in the general population: null model, one-factor model, simple two-factor model, Kendler two-factor model, and three-factor model. The computer program LISREL was used to analyze Schizotypal Personality Questionnaire subscale scores that…

Three-factor model of schizotypal personality: invariance across culture, gender, religious affiliation, family adversity, and psychopathology.

It is argued that the three-factor Disorganized model is a well-replicated model of DSM schizotypal personality in community samples but possibly not in some clinical samples.

Schizotypal Personality Traits: An Extension of Previous Psychometric Investigations

Abstract In an exploratory scale factor analysis of the Combined Schizotypal Traits Questionnaire, Claridge et al. (1996) reported four schizotypal trait dimensions, which they labelled Aberrant

Confirmatory factor analysis of the Schizotypal Personality Questionnaire – brief: An alternative models approach

Schizotypy is a multi-dimensional personality construct that is considered to be a cognitive marker for liability to psychotic disorder. The 22-item brief form of the Schizotypal Personality

Comparing the factor structure of the Wisconsin Schizotypy Scales and the Schizotypal Personality Questionnaire.

This study examined the comparability of the factor structure of 2 leading psychometric measures of schizotypy, finding support for a 2-factor model with positive and negative factors underlying the WSS and the best fit for the SPQ.

[Confirmatory factor analysis of schizotypal personality traits in university students].

Results of these study supported 4-factorial model of Stefanis and modified version of Raine's model to explain factor structure of schizotypal traits, which is compatible with the views seeing schizotypesal traits in general population in continuum with schizophrenia spectrum disorders.

The factor structure of schizotypy and its relationship to social functioning

A three-factor model of schizotypy is the prevailing theoretical model in the literature. However, item-level factor analyses of schizotypy measures suggest that a four- or five-factor model may

The multidimensionality of self-report schizotypy in a psychiatric population: an analysis using multidimensional Rasch models.

It is argued that for research into the multidimensionality of schizotypy with dichotomous item responses on questionnaires (as with the Schizotypal Personality Questionnaire], much can be learned using generalized multidimensional Rasch models (GMRMs).



The multidimensional nature of schizotypal traits: a factor analytic study with normal subjects.

Findings support previous findings suggesting that different schizotypy scales relate to different underlying aspects of schizophrenia and indicate that psychotic traits are distributed along at least three dimensions.

Factors of schizoid personality.

It is concluded that Social anhedonia and Psychoticism represent a separate dimension from other scales which reflect the more positive features of schizoid personality.

The SPQ was found to have high sampling validity, high internal reliability, test-retest reliability, convergent validity, and criterion validity, findings which were replicated across samples, and may be useful in screening for schizotypal personality disorder in the general population and also in researching the correlates of individual schizotypesal traits.

Sex differences in schizotypal personality in a nonclinical population.

It is hypothesized that sex differences in schizophrenic symptomatology may in part reflect an exaggeration of normal sex differences on the more "positive" features of schizotypal personality and normal men will score higher on more "negative" schizoid features.

Familial prevalence and coaggregation of schizotypy indicators: a multitrait family study.

Correlational analyses indicate that many characteristics tested in these measures run together in families, and these traits, taken together, may have joint usefulness for identifying persons with a predisposition to schizophrenia.

Mixed Handedness and Features of Schizotypal Personality in a Nonclinical Sample

Previous findings of a relationship between the cognitive-perceptual features of schizotypal personality and mixed handedness using the SPQ are confirmed and broadly consistent with the association between thought disorder and nondextrality in schizophrenia.

The Structured Interview for Schizotypy (SIS): a preliminary report.

In three independent pilot studies, schizotypal symptoms and signs assessed by the Structured Interview for Schizotypy appear to discriminate significantly the relatives of schizophrenic patients from relatives of controls.
