Schizotypy and schizophrenia involve social disinterest (anhedonia) and social anxiety. To clarify the role of social dysfunction in schizotypy, this study examined the relationship of social anxiety and social anhedonia in 364 young adults. As hypothesized, there was a moderate association between these constructs, which diminished after partialing out positive schizotypy. A series of CFAs found that a three-factor solution with positive schizotypy, negative schizotypy, and social anxiety…

Evidence for the Discriminant Validity of the Revised Social Anhedonia Scale From Social Anxiety
TLDR
Findings suggest that the Revised Social Anhedonia Scale is successful in measuring social anhedonia distinct from social anxiety.
A continuum of suspiciousness and its relation to schizotypy and social anxiety
Paranoia, a continuum of clinical and subclinical experiences in which other people are assumed or suspected to have negative and harmful intentions, is a key symptom of schizotypy (including

Social anhedonia and social functioning: Loneliness as a mediator.
TLDR
The study findings suggest that targeting loneliness in interventions may be important for improving various aspects of social functioning in those individuals who express social anhedonia.

Aberrant asociality: how individual differences in social anhedonia illuminate the need to belong.
TLDR
It is suggested that human belongingness needs can be illuminated by examining when they go awry, and people high in social anhedonia have consistently poorer functioning, including a higher risk for developing schizophrenia-spectrum disorders.
The expression of positive and negative schizotypy in daily life: an experience sampling study
TLDR
The results support the construct validity of a multidimensional model of schizotypy and the ecological validity of the positive and negative schizotypesy dimensions.

TLDR
The present conceptualization of paranoia within a multidimensional schizotypy framework should advance the understanding of these constructs.

The multidimensionality of schizotypy.
TLDR
An overview of self-report scales for measuring schizotypy and a review of factor-analytical studies of these scales show that schizotypesy is a multidimensional construct consisting of three or four factors, which can be classified as factor-specific scales.
Anxiety and depression symptoms in psychometrically identified schizotypy
Social anxiety in outpatients with schizophrenia: a relevant cause of disability.
TLDR
The Liebowitz Social Anxiety Scale appeared adequate and reliable in assessing social anxiety disorder in patients with schizophrenia and will make a contribution to the search for operational guidelines and adequate next-step treatments for social anxiety Disorder in schizophrenia patients.
The multidimensional nature of schizotypal traits: a factor analytic study with normal subjects.
TLDR
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.
The structure of schizotypy, its relation to subdiagnoses of schizophrenia and to sex and age.
TLDR
Results from the present study do not support the view that measures of schizotypy may be grouped in a parallel way to symptoms shown by populations of schizophrenic subjects, but do support the idea that the symptom groupings shown by schizophrenics may be seen as primary and not the secondary result of reactions to earlier phases of the illness.
Factorial composition of self-rated schizotypal traits among young males undergoing military training.
TLDR
The examination of the latent structure of schizotypal dimensions among a large population of young male conscripts in the Greek Air Force during their first week of military training found a four-factor model provided a better fit to the data than did other competing models.
Three-factor model of schizotypal personality: invariance across culture, gender, religious affiliation, family adversity, and psychopathology.
TLDR
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.
