Schizotypal personality is important from both historical and etiological perspective, because of its relationship with schizophrenia. However, within a ‘fully dimensional’ framework, the schizotypy dimension could be extended to a continuum that starts from normal and ends up in schizophrenia and other pathological spectra. This perspective represents schizotypy as continuously distributed traits, which are sources of normal variations as well as predisposition to psychosis. The present study reviews schizotypy, focusing on the dimensions, models, schizotaxia, comorbidity and relationship with other psychological phenomena and measurement tools.
