schizophrenic

seems very coherent to me.

In popular usage, "schizophrenic" (and the more slangy and now dated "schizoid") indicates "split between two attitudes." This drives people with training in psychiatry crazy. "Schizo-" does indeed mean "split," but it is used here to mean "split off from reality." Someone with a Jekyll-and-Hyde personality is suffering from "multiple personality disorder" (or, more recently "dissociative identity disorder"), not "schizophrenia."



cool site for anal retentives such as myself. Especially as it's neglected to include the correct definition of my own misattributed psyhological term ... hooray!
