The goal of this paper is comparison of positive and negative symptoms of schizotypy and schizotypal character aspects among boy and girl stu-dents. For this purpose, 150 female and 150 male students in University of Tabriz were selected using random cluster sampling. Schizotypal character questionnaire (Raine, 1991) was conducted. Descriptive statis-tic indexes and multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA) was used for data analysis. Findings indicated that there is significant difference in schizotypal character general index between boys and girls (P< 0.05). In addition, meaningful difference was observed between boys and girls in subjects such as schizotypal negative symptoms and dimensions of unu-sual conceptual experiences, limited emotion, lack of close friends, and strange speech (P< 0.05). In contrast, there was no considerable differ-ence between them in schizotypal positive symptoms and magical thought dimensions, turning thought, suspicion or mistrust, extreme so-cial anxiety, and strange behavior (P>0.05). Totally, the results showed that male students experience more and intense non-clinical symptoms in schizotypal character general index and schizotypy negative symptoms in comparison to female ones, representing having the readiness for catch-ing psychosis disorders.
