Schizophrenia is a mental disorder characterized by difficulty distinguishing what one perceives, knows, and remembers. Some schizophrenic symptoms include delusions, thought disorders, lack of concentration for more than five minutes with frequent breaks (memory loss), inability to complete tasks or follow through on promises.
