In general common usage, the term connotates crazy
. However, actually psychotic people sometimes hallucinate badly, can have delusional ideas, sometimes say things that wouldn't make sense to them if they were in their senses, and sometimes just aren't there in a catatonic sense. Some can't filter out irrelevant stuff from their surroundings, but not all. An old term for a catatonic Schizophrenia symptom has been passed to its' genetic opposite for quite awhile now, Autism. Ironically, though 'psychotic' implies crazy, I find Antisocial personality disorder to have more to do with 'crazy' then psychotic ever did.

1. Of or relating to psychosis or psychoses, particularly behaviour associated with them. Psychotic behaviour occurs when a person is suffering psychoses, which may be the result of a chronic illness (classically schizophrenia) or very transient in which case it is usually caused by intoxicants. In any case, "psychotic" by definition means "of or relating to psychoses" therefore only behaviour that is due to a psychosis is truly "psychotic" by extension. A psychosis represents loss of contact with reality; it may or may not include delusional, paranoid or disorganised behaviour.
2. Informal and erroneous, though by far the most common lay usage. Refers to extreme behaviour that appears exaggerated, dangerously violent, or motivated by extreme rage. Is usually frightening to observers.
