The following are some of the subtypes of schizophrenia. It should, however, be said that these types have not been included in the DSM 5
this is the type in which the person is too suspicious about things or aspects and displays mostly the positive symptoms of psychosis-like hallucinations and delusions. The negative symptoms like retarded and disorganized speech or behavior and catatonia are not as apparent.
this is the type which has more negative symptoms than positive symptoms. The individual engages in disorganized speech and behavior and looks expressionless or has inappropriate reactions to situations.
this subtype is characterized by the expression of catatonia. This is a condition which involves extreme motor movement (or lack of motor movements) over an extended span of time. The person will remain in an uncomfortable posture for a very long while without shifting even a little and will resist any attempts from others to correct his/her posture. They can also engage in the behavior of mimicking what other people say or how they move.
those who do not predominantly show one type of symptoms and instead show all types equally (positive, negative and disordered movement symptoms) fall under this category.
people who have this subtype do not display the prominent symptoms of schizophrenia anymore, including positive, negative and disorganized symptoms. Nevertheless, they still display at least two of them at a much more diluted and lower extent.
