The purpose of this study is the primary approbation of the questionaire for the assessment of the perception of contradictions. We developed a questionnaire "Study of contradictions", which includes pairs of opposing or not opposing characteristics of the person (both physical and psychological and social). The study involved 26 schizophrenia patients and 15 healthy subjects. The study revealed that patients with schizophrenia are significantly less compared to healthy subjects, allowed for the possibility of coexistence in a person of the opposite social and psychological characteristics. The data obtained allows considering that tolerance of some inconsistency in the perception of themselves and others is a normative phenomenon and acts as the integrity and stability of beliefs about themselves and other people. This work was supported by grant of the Russian Foundation for Basic Research № 17-06-00271. The authors are grateful Kochneva T.V. for assistance in data collection.
