one of my patients was a well known painter and sculptor who suffered (and still suffers because it's not curable) from schizophrenia.
he has drawn some mind blowing stuff just with a couple of cheap crayons. absolutely mind blowing.
actually it's not true. the higher your iq the better you cope with stress which in turn lessens your chance of getting mentally ill.
in fact he definitely was the only schizophrenic genius i've seen in my entire life. all those other mentally ill people usually have normal to low iq's. (schizophrenia lowers your iq with time btw... it's slowly eating your brain if you're using meds and it eats it up much quicker if you don't)
