BARKUS, Emma; STIRLING, John  and  CAVILL, John. Suggestibility, Dissociation and Positive Schizotypy. Clínica y Salud [online]. 2010, vol.21, n.1, pp.3-8. ISSN 2174-0550.

94 participants, drawn from a parent sample of 1206 individuals who had previously taken part in an assessment of the factor structure of the Oxford-Liverpool Inventory of Feelings and Experiences (O-LIFE), were designated into groups differentiated in terms of low, moderate or high levels of positive schizotypy. All also completed the dissociative experiences scale (DES) and the Inventory of Suggestibility (IS). Our findings suggest that higher reported levels of dissociative experiences and higher suggestibility both independently predict higher scores of positive schizotypy, although suggestibility appears to be a stronger predictor than dissociation.

Keywords : dissociative experiences; suggestibility; positive schizotypy.
