Waxy flexibility

Waxy flexibility is a psychomotor symptom of catatonic schizophrenia which leads to a decreased response to stimuli and a tendency to remain in an immobile posture.[1] For instance, if you were to move the arm of someone with waxy flexibility, they would keep their arm where you moved it until it was moved again, as if made from wax.
