ABSTRACT
The article presents a study which determines the significance of time estimation variations in schizophrenia and their relevance to the nosology of schizophrenia. It focuses on the time estimation performance of the paranoid and non-paranoid schizophrenics. Individual variations of time estimates reflect on mental personality variable and are closely associated with neurosis and psychosis. Results of the study indicate that the basis of the distinction between non-paranoid and paranoid schizophrenia is a personality variable unrelated to a general schizophrenic process.
