Is there relationship between psychizoprenic tendency & creativity?



Answer:
In the early 20th century, it was believed that people with schizophrenia are very creative. However, a 2006 study found that people with affective disorders, like depression and especially Bipolar are more creative.
A 1998 study utilizing PET scans found that the association areas of the left anterolateral prefrontal cortex, which are essential for creativity, was less active in medicated schizophrenics, but greatly more active than other people in schizophrenics that had never been medicated. So, unmedicated schizophrenics may be more creative.
Sometimes, when you are in a manic phase, you can be quite creative and original in your thinking.
