Have you ever met someone who has split personalities ? - someone who among other sudden personality changes can tell you quite emphatically that you never gave them important information - which you did, just an hour ago. According to information I gathered from WebMd.com, Split personality syndrome or Dissociative Identity Disorder(DID) is characterized by "the presence of two or more distinct or split identities or personality states that continually have power over the person's behavior." I can say that I have met a few persons who I think suffer from that disorder, and it can be very unnerving not knowing which personality will surface at any given time.

I had a friend who would change personalities in the middle of a sentence. The voice changed, her demeanor, the way she looked and acted, changed radically. She would contradict what she said a few minutes ago. She was very strange.

The same thing happened to me, except that the voice was the same.

@Kandae11 Are you saying you have more than one personality or are you talking about someone you actually know?

I volunteered at a psychiatric hospital and met a few. Very unnerving.

@ketyv12 Yes ,from what I have read, there are a number of factors which contribute to the disorder.

I have read that this condition does not really exist. It sounds more like this person either did not listen when you spoke of has an extremely poor memory.

I have had first hand experience with it, so I know that it does exist. And it was certainly not a case of memory loss.

@Kandae11 Most cases seem more like bipolar mood swings then actual split personality.

@shaggin Yes, I know about bipolar - they are all connected in some way.

Yes. You would know mostly if it is someone you deal with on a regular basis.

You can only hope that both personalities are nice to be with. Most have a good and a bad personality.

I think I would find this very difficult to deal with. There was a TV series once 'The Four States of Tarra' about a woman who had four very different personalities.

Four is a bit much. I won't know how to deal with it either.

Sometimes I wonder, but it's hard to tell I it's a disorder or something else.

Yes it can be hard to tell what's really going on if there isn't much contact between yourself and that person.

I saw a few on Youtube, one is Autumn Asphodel. I saw another one, I don't remember their name, but there's a common link to the two, being they have a host (the real person) and protectors, strong personalities that appear when the host feels threatened. The alters video by Autumn is like half an hour long, I saw it all and thought to myself "I'm exactly like her, the only difference is that I have no split personality, I'm all these people at the same time, amazing!".
