1993b) showed non-significant LF in high schizotypes with reduced pre-exposure duration on a novel latent inhibition 'card' task, however, other research has failed to replicate this task as a procedure for LI (Burch, Hemsley, & Joseph, unpublished data).
LI has also been found to be attenuated in high schizotypes, for example, Baruch, Hemsley, and Gray (1988b) found auditory LI to be significantly reduced in those scoring high in Psychoticism (P; Eysenck & Eysenck, 1975), whilst Lubow, Ingberg-Sachs, Zalstein-Orda, and Gewirtz (1992) found both auditory and visual LI to be attenuated in both high P scorers and high scorers on Claridge and Broks' (1984) STA (schizotypy) scale.
However, the performance on the task was significantly worse in the high schizotypes, as they identified correctly a lower number of target cues (P = .
There was no difference in reaction times but their behavior was different in that the high schizotypes were recognizing fewer objects.
Holt, Simmonds-Moore, and Moore (2008) described a type of schizotypes known as "happy schizotypes," who tend to have good mental health (although notas good as those who are low in all forms of schizotypy), a belief in the "paranormal," and high scores on creativity measures.
Thus far, reduced negative priming has been shown with elderly people (Hasher, Stoltzfus, Zacks & Rypma, 1991; Stoltzfus, Hasher, Zacks, Ulivi & Goldstein, 1993), young children ([+ or -] eight years; Tipper, Bourque, Anderson & Brehaut, 1989), schizotypes (Beech, Baylis, Smithon & Claridge, 1989; Beech & Claridge, 1987), schizophrenic patients (Beech et al.
1993), schizophrenics, schizotypes, old people, young children, social type impulsive children and people with high scores on Broadbent's Cognitive Failures questionnaire will be especially susceptible to the nuisance of interfering thoughts.
Benign schizotypy: Investigating differences between clusters of schizotypes on paranormal belief, creativity, intelligence and mental health.
The "low schizotypy" cluster (corresponding to the high Unusual Experiences cluster from the previous study) scored significantly higher than the other two clusters on the Sense of Coherence scale, suggesting that this cluster consisted of "healthy schizotypes.
Physical anhedonia was negatively correlated with hypnotizability (McCloskey, Kumar, & Pekala, 1999), suggesting that it is particularly "happy schizotypes," that is, those low in anhedonia, who are highly hypnotizable.
