Schizophrenia is not the same mental illness as multiple personality 
disorder.  In short, schizophrenics can have varying degrees of 
psychotic disorder and delusions.  Multiple personality means 
dissociative identity disorder (split personalities).

If you draw a circle in the sand and study only what's inside the 
circle, then that is a closed-system perspective. If you study what 
is inside the circle and everything outside the circle, then that is 
an open system perspective. - Buckminster Fuller
