Schizotypy, on the other hand, has been reported to be prevalent in patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder. With these considerations in mind, the aim of the present study was to evaluate the frequency of compulsive hoarding in people with high schizotypal traits. Method & Materials: A group of 454 participants were screened using schizotypal personality scale. Thirty-one participants with schizotypal personality traits were enrolled in the case group. The control group also consisted of thirty-one non-schizotypal participants. Saving Inventory-Revised was administered to participants in both groups. Data was analyzed using the two-way Analysis of Co-Variance. Results: Results revealed that compared with the control group, the group with schizotypal traits had a higher mean score of hoarding behaviors. Also there was found a gender effect in this regard i.e. females with high traits of schizotypy were characterized by higher scores on compulsive hoarding scale compared to males with the same traits. Conclusion: Results add some more evidence about the correlation between obsessive-compulsive disorder and schizotypal personality traits.
Keywords: Schizotypy, compulsive hoarding, obsessive-compulsive disorder, gender
