Abstract

Objective: To determine whether people with high scores for schizotypal thinking generate more uncommon words in a letter fluency task thanpeople with low scores. Design: Prospective study. Setting: University psychology department. Patients: Forty healthy, right-handed students. Interventions: Students were administered the Magical Ideation (MI)Scale and a 2-minute letter fluency task in which they named as many nouns as possible beginning with ''A'' or ''F,'' in any order. Outcomemeasures: Total number of words produced and percentage of unique, rare and common words (as determined by the responses of the whole group); scores on MI scale. Results: Participants with high scores (above the median) on the MI scale generated as many words as those who had low scores. People in both groups also generated a comparable number of unique words (named by only I person) and common words (named by 6 or more people). As hypothesized, people with high scores on the MI scalegenerated more rare words (named by fewer than 6 people) than those with low scores. Conclusions: These findings support the view of a disinhibition of semantic network functioning as the neuropsychological basis of creative thought, magical ideation and thought disorder.
