No. There are five types of schizophrenia, some overlapping, but each affecting behavior in a different way. They are:
Paranoid schizophrenia: This results in feelings of persecution that sometimes alternate with grandiosity.
Disorganized schizophrenia: This causes primarily incoherent speech or thought, but may not involve delusions.
Catatonic schizophrenia: There is total withdrawal from reality causing a person to not speak, assume bizarre body positions, and appear to be in almost a trance-like state.
Residual schizophrenia: While classic signs of schizophrenia -- such as delusions -- may no longer be a problem, patients still have very little or no motivation or drive and little interest in life.
Schizoaffective disorder: This is a combined diagnosis that involves the classic symptoms of schizophrenia along with those of another mental illness, most commonly bipolar disorder (manic depression).
