Fabian Aguirre - Intro Dissertation Fabian Aguirre Research.fabian aguirre austin statesman.Ample studies have shown that persons with schizotypy are very similar to individuals with schizophrenia. However, little is known about the way persons with schizotypy use coping strategies. This study compares 71 college students, identified as either high or low in schizotypy with the use of the Schizotypal Personality Questionnaire-Brief (SPQ-B), on coping strategies while controlling for cognitive appraisal and neurocognition. We found that, when controlling for cognitive appraisal, persons high in schizotypy were significantly more likely to use avoidance coping than persons low in schizotypy. However, persons high and low in schizotypy show little to no difference in approach coping. We also found that neurocognition does not correlate with coping strategies.Therefore, college students high in schizotypy may be using less effective coping, as patients diagnosed with schizophrenia do.
