Lennie is schizophrenic which is when he is imagining things that aren't real. Lennie was talking to his aunt and a rabbit, which is his mental disability.

Exactly. Lennie's disability is schizophrenic. He is mentally challenged. He can't control his emotions. He is unable to read people and has few social skills.

Lennie is not schizophrenic I am schizophrenic and there's no evidence to suggest he is, Lennie is classic autistic idiots you offend me schizophrenic people are often quite aware

Lennie is not autistic. In the first chapter, he senses he has the high ground in the conversation, implying he can sense soical clues. One of the main symptoms of autism is the inability to sense those sorts of things.
