Objectives: Recent interest has focused on the relationship between schizotypy and OCD. The present study explored the possibility that schizotypal and obsessive compulsive features are significantly related together among non-clinical samples. Method: In this correlational study, 262 individuals were randomly selected and examined. Participants completed the Schizotypal Trait questionnaire A form (STA) and Padua Inventory (PI). Results: Positive correlations were found between schizotypal personality and obsessive compulsive features. Using the multivariate regression analysis model, results indicated that two components of schizotypal personality, namely unusual perceptual experiences and paranoid suspiciousness/ social anxiety factors, have the strongest associations with obsessive compulsive scores. Also, among the four obsessive compulsive factors, lack of control over mental processes and contamination, significantly predicted schizotypal personality. Conclusion: Some common factors seem to be present between obsessive and schizotypal factors. Results were discussed in light of previous clinical research and based on anxiety-psychosis spectrum hypothesis.
