Would it surprise you to learn that most schizophrenics are in fact not paranoid, and that paranoid schizophrenia is in fact only one of 6 types of the disorder? [[note]]The other types are disorganized, catatonic, undifferentiated, residual, and simple schizophrenia.[[/note]] Yet all media always portray schizophrenics as being ridiculously paranoid. Why is this?

It's because Hollywood is attempting to cover up the other types of schizophrenia and propagandize the paranoid type to make everyone assume that paranoia ''is'' schizophrenia, causing people to dismiss all conspiracies as schizophrenic delusions so that everyone will dismiss cries that [[NebulousEvilOrganisation The Secret Cabal of the Brotherhood of the Cold Sun]] is taking over America with its black helicopters and its air-conditioners. Or else, Hollywood wants you to think that schizophrenics are founts of wisdom when it comes to conspiracy theories and must never be blown off simply because they're insane, even if what they think the Secret Cabal of the Brotherhood of the Cold Sun is doing would break the laws of physics. It depends on the studio and film-maker.

In medical jargon, schizophrenia is a general term for a group of disorders that are all characterized by disorganized thought, general difficulty in thinking, delusions, hallucinations, and jerky or "odd" movement. This is combined with a lack of desire and motivation, and other "negative symptoms" such as the loss of typical abilities like speech or empathy. Of course, this is just what the doctors want you to think.

* The protagonist of the [[ShowWithinAShow television show]] ''Address Unknown'' in ''MaxPayne2'' is diagnosed as "paranoid schizophrenic" allegedly caused by a brain tumor. Or as least, [[UnreliableNarrator our protagonist]] says this happens.

-->My doctor heard from the producer of the movie that Brad wanted to research the role and was looking for people to interview...I said yes. [A]t that time I was still mentally unstable... Brad walked into the room with a stack of 3×5 cards. He said he had some movie lines on the cards and wanted to know how we would act out the situation on the card. I remember show[ing] him how I would act... Watching the movie it turned out to be a classic scene. Brad giving the tour in the psych ward was fairly close to me at this time.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}: Lab Rat'', a companion comic to the game, Aperture Science researcher Douglas Rattman has this type of schizophrenia. Without medication, he experiences hallucinations such as that his CompanionCube is talking to him and that the AI MasterComputer in charge of the laboratory is out to kill him. Of course, the latter is [[ProperlyParanoid actually true]], which allows him to be the sole survivor of [=GLaDOS=]'s purge of the scientists. Hidden away, he manipulates the system to put protagonist Chell into a position to enact the events of the two games.

* ''Literature/InsideOut'' by Terry Trueman is narrated by a fellow who went into a schizophrenic state and, essentially, never came out. Voices often interrupt the narration to taunt him, and there's rhyming nonsense in the margins of the pages. ("Squish-wish, squish-wish, don't you wish you could squish a wish?") It should be noted that Trueman is a psychologist, so this is presumably an accurate depiction of some form of the illness.
