Existing self-report measures of schizotypal personality assess only one to three of the nine traits of schizotypal personality disorder. This study describes the development of the Schizotypal Personality Questionnaire (SPQ), a self-report scale modeled on DSM-III-R criteria for schizotypal personality disorder and containing subscales for all nine schizotypal traits. Two samples of normal subjects (n = 302 and n = 195) were used to test replicability of findings. The SPQ was found to have… Expand
The SPQ-B: A brief screening instrument for schizotypal personality disorder.
Currently there are no brief screening instruments for Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) defined schizotypal personality disorder (SPD). This study reports the developmentExpand
Psychometric properties of the Brief Version of the Schizotypal Personality Questionnaire in relatives of patients with schizophrenia-spectrum disorders and non-psychiatric controls
TLDR
The Schizotypal Personality Questionnaire-Brief Version (SPQ-B), which includes cognitive-perceptual, interpersonal, and disorganized domains, may be a useful brief screening measure of schizotypy though some limitations in its psychometric properties were evident in this sample. Expand
The Study of Psychometric Properties of Schizotypal Personality Questionnaire-Brief ( SPQ-B )
The different scales for assessing schizotypal trai ts were developed from different perspectives. These scales confined thems elve only to certain aspects (syndromes) of the schizotypal personality,Expand
Comparison of self-report and clinician-rated schizotypal traits in schizotypal personality disorder and community controls
TLDR
Assessment of schizotypal traits should include both self-report questionnaires and clinician ratings, whereas certain disorganization and interpersonal traits are not, particularly for individuals with SPD. Expand
The validity of the Schizotypal Personality Questionnaire in a Greek sample: Tests of measurement invariance and latent mean differences.
TLDR
The Greek version of the SPQ is a psychometrically sound instrument for measuring schizotypal characteristics and a useful screening tool for SPD across gender and age. Expand
Some suggestions for the DSM-5 schizotypal personality disorder construct.
TLDR
Investigating the construct validity of SPD as defined by DSM-IV in a large sample of patients from the Norwegian Network of Personality-Focused Treatment Programs found that 2 factors were specific for SPD, a cognitive-perceptual factor and an oddness factor that was more strongly associated with antisocial PD and paranoid PD than with the other PDs.

Schizotypal personality questionnaire – brief revised (updated): An update of norms, factor structure, and item content in a large non-clinical young adult sample
TLDR
Overall, the higher-order and lower-order factors of schizotypy demonstrated reliability and convergent and discriminant validity; detailed psychometric data are presented in a supplement. Expand
The Schizotypal Personality Questionnaire – Child (SPQ-C): Psychometric properties and relations to behavioral problems with multi-informant ratings
TLDR
The findings suggest that the SPQ-C is suitable as a screening tool for schizotypy in community children who may be at risk for behavioral problems and later psychosis, and provide the first robust psychometric evidence for a three-factor structure of the Chinese SPZ-C in a large Mainland Chinese sample. Expand
The heterogeneous structure of schizotypal personality disorder: item-level factors of the Schizotypal Personality Questionnaire and their associations with obsessive-compulsive disorder symptoms, dissociative tendencies, and normal personality.
TLDR
The authors' analyses failed to support either the 3-factor model of SPD or the 9 existing DSM-based subscales of the SPQ, but 5 replicable dimensions emerged that capture recurrent symptom pairings found in the broader SPD literature. Expand
The Schizotypal Personality Questionnaire for Children (SPQ-C): Factor Structure, Child Abuse, and Family History of Schizotypy.
TLDR
Results support the utility of the SPQ-C in future family and clinical studies of schizotypal personality and provide an avenue for much-needed and neglected research into the early antecedents of child schizotypesal personality. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that scales which assess the construct of schizophrenism or 'interpersonal aversiveness' may be the most central to Meehl's 'integrative neural defect' or genetic predisposition to schizotypy. Expand
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. Expand

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

TLDR
Results are interpreted as supporting both the clinical relevance and research utility of the PAS and enhancing the construct validity of Meehl's model of schizotypy. Expand

TLDR
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. Expand

TLDR
The results indicated that the two diagnostic categories each define a type of borderline with distinctive combinations of features, and the theoretical separation of two subtypes of borderline personality is affirmed. Expand

TLDR
The Rust Inventory of Schizoid Cognitions (RISC) is a new, psychometrically constructed, cognitively based, short questionnaire of psychoticism that has good reliability and validity, and can clearly discriminate acute schizophrenics from normals. Expand
