In brief: Differences

Schizotypal: a person with extremely eccentric thought patterns that border on psychotic, with bizarre, often unkempt appearance.
Schizoid: a person largely indifferent to interpersonal relationships, detached from others and happy to be that way. Schizophrenia: these people are psychotic, which means they experience hallucinations of taste, touch, smell, vision and most commonly, hearing.
