Background: Schizotypy is a multidimensional construct that includes positive, negative, and disorganized dimensions. The healthy schizotypal model suggests that positive schizotypal features could be associated with better psychological functioning. The aim of this study was to analyze whether schizotypal features are associated with subjective and psychological well-being, and consider whether psychotic-like experiences affect well-being. Method: These relationships were investigated in two hundred non-clinical Spanish adults (mean age = 34.80, S.D. = 14.20). Results: Negative schizotypal features were associated with lower wellbeing, whereas positive schizotypal features were related with greater well-being. Individuals with subclinical psychotic experiences scored lower for psychological well-being than individuals without these experiences. Conclusions: The study suggests that some positive features may be beneficial for well-being while others are associated with lower well-being. © 2018 Psicothema.
