        In college we learned it meant split minds-
        Either way schizophrenic the mind definitely sees something the rest of us don't

    Anhedonia is one interesting characteristic of a Schizo d/o. Lack of pleasure + flat affect which i think is one useful anhedonic behaviour a normal person can assimilate when encountered by an extremely manic person.

    That's interesting. I never knew schizophrenia translates to "split minds." No wonder people tend to confuse schizophrenia with multiple personality disorder (dissociative identity disorder).

    schizophrenia does not translate to split mind.  I accept this is the common interpretation but a more true translation is fragmented mind.
