It's a personality disorder, schizotypal people are often what evil society might call 'loners'.

And yes it is considered that schizotypal people are at high risk for developing schizophrenia.

my therapist said I might be schitzotypal

To win the respect of intelegent people and the affection of children, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch... to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is too have SUCCEEDED! - Emerson

Not all people who are schizotypal go on to become schizophrenic. As with most disorders, schizophrenia could be on a spectrum (much like autism) and this could mean that some people are more or less likely to develop the disease.

However, keep in mind that no one knows the cause of this mental illness, or most mental illnesses, it's a very complex subject, and the human brain isn't the easiest thing to work out, however alot of evidence supports genetic predispostions.
