    What is the relationship between schizophrenia and multiple personalities? I thought they were...

    one and the same, but the symptoms you list don't seem to include and extra personality.

    I know I'm not the intended author, but from what I understand, schizophrenia is basically a form of dymentia in which the patient suffers from a dillusional state of mind, unconnected to reality.

    MPD on the other hand is where the patient literally has multiple personalities they switch between, but each individual personality still has at least a basic grasp of reality.

    And because shynsly did such a good job of taking the serious route, I'll say that the relationship between schizophrenia and multiple personalities is one fraught with land mines and social faux pas. But the sex is mind-shattering and you never get tired of the company. After all, you never know who's coming down to the breakfast table in the morning!
