I've seen a lecture on this topic, where a stanford neurosicentist is talking about schizotypal disorder as kind of an advantegeous trait to have in tribal communities for exactly this reason. He's making a similar case for OCD, pointing out repetitive rituals in many religions btw. Interesting stuff
