Psyche Schizoid, Schizotypal, Schizophreniform

Here is three personality disorder I used to get confused:

1. Schizoid: Aloof, isolated, rarely involved in pleasurable activities
2. Schizotypal: Magical thinking, believes in telepathy, reduced capacity for close relation
3. Schizophreniform: Hallucination, Delusion, Disorganized for >1 but <6 months. if >6 months, then it is Schizophrenia

Hope this helps. Any addition, revision welcome.

Just wanted to edit the Schizophreniform to make it more easy to remember:

Schizophreniform- Schizophrenia forming >>>>>> Schizophrenia after 6 months.
