Hallucinations and delusions are positive symptoms of schizophrenia. They are called positive because presence of these symptoms indicates you might have this disorder. In other words, normal people don’t have these symptoms. 8. Flat affect (ie toneless voice, expressionless face) and rigid posture are negative symptoms. Negative because absence of expression and regular posture indicates a problem. Most normal people have expression and normal posture. 9. Females have a higher rate of depression.
