"Some experts theorize that certain schizophrenia symptoms (for instance, paranoia) arise in part from a hyperactive sense of social reasoning. “I’d guess that they’d give lots of teleological answers; more than neurotypical people, and certainly far more than people with Asperger’s,” Heywood says."
My mother is a schizophrenic. She sees complex plots behind receiving a hang up call. I tell her: it was just a wrong number, they didn't recognize your voice. It happens to all of us.
So I see a gradient:
No teliological thinking -- Antiteliological thinking -- Teliological thinking -- Extreme teliological thinking
Humans with Asperger's Atheist Humans Religious humans Schizophrenics
? rational and practical somewhat irrational totally irrational
