In brief: Mostly easy

I happen to really like folks with schizophrenia.
Most are actually very nice people. Some, and especially when they are off their meds and are not doing so well, can become irritable, especially when they are confused due to the fact they may have lost some touch with reality. If a person is talking to his or herself and seems to be in their own world, it is best to not try and talk with them.

In brief: Schizophrenics

Depends on whether they are stable, compliant with their medications, and the type of schizophrenia they are diagnosed with.
All in all, most are easy to get along with.
