Schizotypal Personality Disorder is a "schizophrenia spectrum" disorder, a mental illness characterized by social isolation, unusual perceptions, and odd or eccentric behavior. The cognitive effects of this disorder are similar but less severe than Schizophrenia. It is somewhat common for SPD traits to appear in patients with OCD. As with Schizophrenia, SPD can be passed through genetic material, but studies also show that neglect or abuse in early childhood can trigger the development of schizotypal traits. Gender differences mention women being more prone to cognitive peculiarities, with men exhibiting more behavioral abnormalities and social withdrawal.

Common symptoms of SPD include:
- Inappropriate or blunted affect (exhibiting emotions inappropriate for a given situation, or the numbing of emotion)
- Social withdrawal
- Impulsive nonconformity (emotional instability, eccentricity or oddness in appearance, unconventionality in social situations)

- Paranoia
- Elaborate or disorganized speech
- Unusual or "magical thinking" (hallucinations, delusions, the belief that a mundane occurrences hold certain significance or a signs specifically for the individual to find)
Schizotypal disorder can be helped with anti-psychotics.

Apollo is the Greek god of the sun, light, poetry, art, music, medicine, healing and archery (important guy). He and his twin, Athena, were a product of Zeus’ inability to keep his wang to himself when he knocked up a deity named Leto, who is otherwise rather insignificant in Greek mythology.

Apollo is characterized as being the most beautiful of the gods, garnering much adoration from his many lovers -- both male and female alike (most of his male lovers died tragically), and bore a number of children. According to legends, Apollo is responsible for the existence of the cypress tree and flowers that turn to follow the sun. In a rage he seared white birds into crows (poor judgment on his part, but he made up for it by giving them the responsibility to announce death), and turned a jealous Zephyrus into the wind.

Apollo’s symbols are the lyre and the bow and arrow, and he considers several animals sacred, such as snakes, crows, wolves, dolphins and deer.
He wrangled a chthonic serpent when he was four days old. That's Apollo for you.
