quit trying to pretend you'r smart or special because you have a mental illness
ACTUAL MEDICAL SITES THAT SHOW THE LINK BETWEEN LOW IQ AND SCHIZOPHRENIA
Analysis of the pooled results confirmed that schizophrenia patients had a significantly lower premorbid IQ compared with mentally healthy controls, at an effect size of -0.43. This equates to a mean IQ score of 93.6 among individuals who later develop schizophrenia compared with a population mean of 100.0.
you're retarded/lower than average
You should probably stop pretending like you are academic. Your first two links are from before 2000, we've had 13 years of progress since then particularly related to understanding schizophrenia. Your first link cites very few 1999 references, the rest range from 1919 to ~1980s. Your second link is about a study conducted in 1983.
Also, your third link basically shows that schizo patients do not seem to lose their wits over time and that lower IQs are more susceptible to schizo. This should not infer an inverted associated between low IQs and schizo in that the more prevalent the symptoms does not suggest a lower IQ. This may be confusing to someone who just randomly searched on Google yet does not grasp how to read medical research papers.
This also does nothing to address high-functioning schizo which is scheduled to be further detailed in the new DSM coming out this year.
