Disorders of volition

Among the most disabling of the clinical phenomena of schizophrenia are disruptions of motivation and will. Voluntary activity can be disjointed or weakened. Disjointed volition is manifest in poorly organized ill-judged activities which appear to be prompted by impulse. For example, an artistic, intelligent young woman felt cold so she lit a fire on the carpet in her bedroom, even though she was able to appreciate that this was a dangerous thing to do. Weakened volition results in prolonged periods of underactivity. The patient might lie in bed or sit in an armchair for hours.
