I am not surprised to learn that schizophrenia is considered a form of "split" personality by most people who have heard of the term. However, that is a mistaken notion. The daily existential manifestation of the disease is depression, alienation, isolation, aphasia and flattening of affective responses. Catatonia is yet another aspect. The split lies not in the personality but with reality as commonly perceived. A schizophrenic psychosis involves a brain going into overdrive with the dropping of sensory filters to information, leading to bizzare delusions, ideas and thoughts.

Thought I'd just put this up ... I have never felt any "split" in my "personality" till date.
