Answers may vary, but should include the following for full credit:
Positive symptoms represent a larger category of specific symptoms that, in one way or another, represent excesses or distortions of normal functions. For example, sensory processes are a normal part of human experience, but hallucinations represent distorted, inaccurate perceptions. Similarly, thinking and speech are functions most people take for granted, but the disorganized thinking and speech seen in schizophrenia illustrate excesses of these processes. Negative symptoms refer to the absence or deficit of a process, such as blunted affect, reduced sociability, lack of motivation, and lack of speech.
