This study aimed to examine whether the same clusters of individuals with schizotypy as reported in Western samples are present in a Chinese sample. Cluster analysis was conducted on the responses of 418 individuals to the Chapman Psychosis-Proneness Scales. Results revealed that similar clusters of schizotypy exist in Chinese and Western samples, and that the emotional and neuropsychological symptoms they manifest are consistent with their cluster type. © 2012 Elsevier Ireland Ltd.
