We analysed the relationship between schizotypy and height in healthy subjects. One hundred and ninety-seven subjects gave information about their height and completed a computerised schizotypy questionnaire. Men with high schizotypy scores were shorter than their low schizotypal peers. This finding parallels reports of reduced stature in schizophrenic patients and so supports the validity of schizotypy as an index of psychosis-proneness.
