German, since I used to be somewhat conversational in it when I was a kid. I'd also like to learn Japanese so I can help with translations of stuff that either is localized terribly, or isn't localized at all. Winter, as it's much, much, MUCH cooler.

Schizophrenia is a complex mental illness that includes distortion in thinking and more well-known psychotic symptoms, such as auditory and visual hallucinations. Schizophrenia presents in various severity and the usual onset is young adult, though kids can display symptoms as well. The derivation from "split mind" is what confuses most. Schizophrenia can cause a negative or flat affect and delusions. A more common subtype, which has been changed in recent years was schizophrenia-paranoid type. This is also the subtype used in media. Multiple personality disorder, or dissociative identity disorder, is a wholly separate condition. Symptoms include discontinuities in perception, mannerisms, dissociative states, feelings of possession, spotty memory due to dissociative states, and to close observers of the sufferer, they may present as "moody" or highly changeable. DID does not include the auditory or visual hallucinations, delusions, disorganized thinking (and/or speech), and affect that are present in schizophrenia. I had written a very obnoxious reference list for the appropriate articles on Wookieepedia, along with a similarly-obnoxious ref list and BTS for another article, schizoid personality disorder.

They have no desire for interpersonal contact and may maintain a small circle of very close friends. 1. I always pictured a amalgam of Middle Eastern architecture and Chinese. Lots of temples. 2.
