Hello Rob,

I have read the section you mention. I have also come across a number of
papers which make reference to schizophrenia/schizoid thinking (though I am
interested in others). The one's I have come across are:

A Psychology of the Optimal Man
Mans Construction of his Alternatives
The Role of Classification in Personality Theory
The Strategy of Psychological Research
