Background and Objective: Research on schizotypal personality in general population may provide a particular opportunity to study the different markers of vulnerability to schizophrenia without the confounding effects of long term hospitalization, medication and severe psychotic symptoms. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between the some demographic characteristics and the psychotic like traits.

Materials and Methods: The current study conducted in cross sectional research context. A group of 482 (294 female and 188 male) normal participants from faculties of Shahidmadani University in the academic year 2008-2009 was selected randomly (Mean age= 24, 58±1.44), and answered to The Oxford- Liverpool Inventory of Feelings and Experiences (OLIFE). Data were analyzed using Pearson's correlation coefficient, multiple regression and independent t test.

Results: Results suggested that only marriage status was significantly related to psychotic like traits (p<0.05, b=0.093), and single students, in contrast to married, had significantly increased schizotypy scores (p<0.001, t=4.31). Men have higher mean scores on impulsive nonconformity factor (p<0.001, t= 3.49), and there are no differences on total and other factors of schizotypy. With respect to other demographic factors, results showed the effects are neglectable.

Conclusions: Results were explained in light of fear of intimacy and aloneness symptoms in people with schizotypal traits.
