          A case of a 53-year old-single, Kelantanese lady with a diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia for 28 years is reported with aims to illustrate the influence of life experiences particularly based on education and intelligent on delusion illustrate the evolving nature of the complexity of delusions as well as to show the importance of documentation in psychiatric practice. We concluded that this patient had used defense mechanism of suppression, reaction formation  and persecution throughout her delusion. The final persecutory delusion evolved through series of transformation via object of admirations. We postulated that in-depth emotional insight about effects of schizophrenia might have contributed to her self-reflection that have made her frustrated with her poor achievement in life.
