Are multiple personalities common amongst everyone, or only with the gifted??

What is Multiple Personality?? Its when a Person has a schizophrenic tendency. Possessing a Kaleidoscope of identities / behaviour. But is this common only amongst those susceptible to this random act of 'delusions'.
Its not the same as Dissociative identity disorder

This is only my personal hypothesis, We all have it. Every single being has a boardroom filled with various personalities. Interacting with our Conscious on various levels of awareness. From our Subconscious to Consciousness. Every Personality has its domain and its reign, being educated with our daily life lessons and experiences. Once those lessons become instinctive, it's reaches a level that those Personalities Automatically engages.
These attributes is present during youth, our invisible friends are most common then, we confide in them and have interesting talks with them, this part of our self education. Some innate Personality being more negative and aggressive either through negative visual stimulation or stress relating to aggression:- inflicted on the victim or seen done to someone with deep connection with the Victim.

Every stimulation has its personality, a level of education taught by the constant introduction to that specific but random stimulation. This is done on a Micro cellular level and at Nanosecond speeds. Our internal physiology clock and bio-mechanical functions occur at speeds far superior than the Reality we perceive. Our soul is the trigger mechanism interacting with each personality at speeds that could only be understood and analysed at Femto speed. Learning how the body reacts to various stimulation is remarkable. Our greatest quandary is how our mind interact with such perfection and with each and every single cell's mundane task efficiently. Being alive in this moment with such mechanical precision. consuming so little energy for those task. With highest concentration of energy, being consumed by the brain. For creative thought and Imaginative ingenuity

Closing Statement from Yusuf Mallie

I would like to say that we need to be more intune with our Multiple Personality. Even if you don't believe you have it. You will discover it, when you allow yourself to be open Minded. Meditation is the Best form of Inner discoveries. There is various forms of Meditation. I particular have been introduced to a specific Meditation at a very early age and used It extensively for self healing.

Physical chronic pain, is the most difficult Trauma to overcome. I have been in Pain since my accident in 2010, till now. It has been a Horrendous and horrifying experience. Constant Pain, Numbness in Limbs and extremities. You cannot focus on anything, even Meditation. You need some kind of Pain blocker to concentrate and try and meditate. I had to overdose myself with sleeping tablets. Even high dosage of Pain tablets or Spinal Blocks had no effect. I had to overdose myself with 5 to 6 sleeping tablets to get a good nights rest.
Since I have been, a very difficult sleeper due to the pain. It would take me longer to fall asleep even with an Overdose. It was during these session, I have encountered the various brain states from the Conscious to subconscious. I could feel each one switching off while I was Blogging on my facebook page. It happened several time. It was then I was re-introduced to this notion of multiple personality syndrome. I could interact with heightened consciousness with my subconscious. I was amazed how my mind could relate to old memories and refresh it with New one's concocting new Innovation and inventions.

I have realized that out of my 35 life threatening, horrific accidents and calamities, there is a purpose for me. Lots of people don't see my Creative Vision. With specific meditation I could pinpoint and ascertain the best case scenario for my Inventions, with this ability I clarified my vision and my purpose. Not just to survive or live but to contribute and SHINE!!
I would like to thank all those who have Participated in this Conversation.

  • May 14 2013: This comment stems from psychiatric and clinical experience in multiple facets. I argue that the concept of the Johari's window is a basic interpretation of anyone having "multiple personalities." Theoretically, each of our "selves" possesses unique characteristics that could be blinded by our whole mental state. For example, our "unknown self" would be unconcious to our "open" and "hidden" selves. Additionally, the environmental aspects of personality changes are to be considered. We all have different characteristics about ourselves that seem to rear in certain situations depending on your comfort level, stress, anxiety, etc.

    These concepts get tricky when we overlay them on mental illness. It is hard to place the existence of multiple personalities into one subset of mental illnesses. Both people with schizophrenia and DID exhibit different layers, responses and conceptions about having "multiple personalities." The populations of people who have aspects of these disorders are often very different socioeconmically, educationally, etc. What you describe as a "boardroom of personalities" is a treatment skill for DID to direct patients to have internal communication between personalities to achieve a sense of singularity.

    I like the idea that we all could be interacting with multiple aspects of our psyche at lightning fast speeds that our brains can not even comprehend us doing. One of the reasons DID is so controversial is the innate difficulty in differentiating between differing personality characteristics interacting rapidly without comprehension and legitimate disruptions in a patient's mental centeredness.

    One further question: how could we use the idea that we all have innate multiple personalities to destigmatize DID and mental illness?

      May 14 2013: Hi Caitlin thank you for your wonderful enlightening comment. I have had this conversation with various people for years. Because I was surprised by my own findings how instinctively we can complete a set regime without putting any attention or any effort into set regime until you stagger due to unfamiliar stimulation. I have noticed so many wonderful things, during meditation and calming myself to a level to better understanding of my emotions that fueled by various personalities. I was surprised to find such a kaleidoscope of comprehensive identities with knowledge in specific fields of personal experience. I have tried to better understand this type of structure and I have hypothesized that. Humanity mimic's these structure and administration from this innate structure that is apparent in all of us. Our controlling personality or President personality is the chief our centred identity what we project and communicate with on a casual social medium. That is our souls Reactive and expressive interpolation due to stimulation. Being amongst children we see the greater need to ask question to gain knowledge and better understanding their surroundings. These infant questioning years is fundamental to our greater understanding of life and reality. Children process, educate and create individual identities and those identities with the most information (the type of stimulation we react to the most becomes our character or behaviour) but those identities supersede other identities needs to be educated. Starving those identities seeking and yearning information, they rebel or become dormant depending the aggressive nature of the Individual.

      So having the inherent knowledge of all your Life lessons and experience. That is controlled by this administrative board of personalities, but with nanospeed reaction to stimulation we comprehend Reality with the R&D. life is only understood with holistic comprehension of this Board, this is only my descriptive hypothesis,

      May 14 2013: Read my article:

      This is just my hypothesis but DID is caused but the disfranchised of our board of personality. When the individuals mental state has been corrupted due to stress, aggressive tendency and external stimulation, that we cannot delegate or compute to a set Personality. Our confusion of selecting a correct personality for this foreign stimulation leads us into an endless spiral of nothingness (confusion). When this happens the next high ranking or negative identity takes precedence, either with schizophrenic results, that is detrimental to self preservation or social interactions. But this Vice president or second in command is constantly tested and anarchy results due to their low resistance to internal forces. Unlike the Centred identity or President, that is not easily impeached or overthrown, maintaining stability. But the Vice President does not have this strength and virtue. Resulting in DID.

      So how do we find a solution, it is not done searching for the President. But providing constructive and productive processing, creating a Johari's window projecting images that centred identity was familiar with. Through a bombardment of captured visual stimulation. Either through virtual reality of old Photo image stimulation. We reverse engineer our infancy tendency to search for solution or familiar interactive simulation. This will bring out the President from its delusional made up virtual existence they are comfortable in.

      Thank you for your response!!

    May 16 2013: So true, adesh being to truthful, society and medical practitioner will make their own assumptions. that is completely unrelated trying to understand the behaviour and character of the individual and evaluating it with their own Medical therapeutic Research, trying to stereotype the truthful person identity. But each and every case is unique and different. Maybe with similarities. But each person is different and gifted. We must not make negative assumptions, we must evaluate that persons outlook is either Positive or Negative. Negative tendency is detrimental to their existence and society as a Whole. They are the fuel for insane asylums. But when you have a positive approach. You not controlled by negative violent tendency or evil intentions.

    Those Positive people can contribute so much more to society than average or normal individuals. They shouldn't be evaluated with the Same pen. So being truthful has resulted in Negative attribution and stereotyping which is bad. Because the Truth sets you free. But with repercussion of condemnation and stereotyping. Who wants to be truthful then. It becomes a norm, to have a life filled with lies and deceit, to achieve individual self gain. How horrible the outcome.
    With psychotic medication even those positive personality change due to drug intoxication. Making the person even more dangerous as their centred identity have been subdued allowing the negative or evil inside to manifest. Thus confirming Medical Practitioners hypothesis of Schizophrenia. So drugs make violent tendency even more likely. So when it manifest, a higher dosage of medication is prescribed, leaving the patient incapacitated, trying to subdue their violent tendency.

      May 16 2013: Carolyn that was my background. I am an only child, even though I was physically and mentally abused by a mother that could not stand my ADD. But with Meditation I released my inner ability. This Meditation was achieved by spiritual interaction with ancient orientals. I could not just hear the voice but I could see them from an early age, they manifested themselves so I could understand my Uniqueness.
      Napoleon hill had similar experience but his is a bit far fetch for me for he attributes it to alternate worlds. If I must describe my version of awakening you it would be humourous. But it would really establish my mindset. I chose to stop this Triviality due to social pressure. I chose to be normal for 20 years learning and discovering life. Learning from every calamity every obstacle. My personal horrific accidents, horrific attacks, been involved in traumatic events and been exposed 2 horrific accidents. I have not even touched on the Surface of my traumatic life.

      With 10 years collective convalescence I became more in tuned with my uniqueness. This madness and schizophrenia was controlled by my faith and meditation. I have been in extreme violent situation that made me more susceptible 2 violence. But my uniqueness and constant self evaluation has toned down my violent tendency. I used my physical presence as a weapon without the need to act. I have learnt techniques to restrain the devil in me. I feel blessed finding this centre. Faith is very important in the healing of any trauma. Faith must allow you to to expressive and subdue negative tendency. It must provide a positive outlook and bring out the generosity of love. This road of mine is a hard and traumatic. But I feel blessed, it is invaluable to my psyche. So its not just a simple deep meditation but learning from each trauma and meditating on each obstacle, I have achieved this insight of Boardroom of personality. This is my hypothesis because its my experience and my life. I am using as Reference

    May 15 2013: Not "Interacting with our Conscious on various levels of awareness," but forming the consciousness of the personality.
    See Antonio Demasio's book "Self Comes To Mind." It is difficult reading but arguably the best framework for understanding this topic.

    See Rita Carter's book "Multiplicity."

    Also, Yale psychology professor Paul Bloom wrote an article in 2008 that is still relavent, "First Person Plural"

      May 14 2013: hi Carolyn Thank you for your comment. I do appreciate your time and effort to comment. Yes I agree with you, we only fully understand these voice's and personalities when trauma occurs. But after that we pay more attention becoming self aware and hearing this chatter. Getting louder and more topic specific and after that the occurrence is more frequent determining a more conclusive approach.

      I have discovered that with Meditation allowing myself to be creative and come up with New creative idea's allowing this interaction with personalities. I am able to dissect and extrapolate the desired information without any practical just Theoretical. But I am very inquisitive and trying to ascertain the authenticity of this hypothesis. I perform Practical investigation and experiment and I am amazed how precise my result verifies my theoretical hypothesis. In this method I have concocted creative, innovative and futuristic designs and Idea's. Coupled with my life lessons and experience. Idea's and designs are unlimited. I feel blessed having this gift of debative scrutiny amongst a boardroom of personalities schooled in my forgotten historical accounts and experiences.

      Carolyn you are so correct with Trauma, as introspection and investigative comprehension is more common during that time period. Than any other period. It is a recovery method that allow our brain to put things into perspective. This is so good for self counselling, and self diagnosis. I have ben in 7 MVA and 30 life threatening accidents. I know lotz of people don't believe in their voices, interacting with our subconscious, but they truly deny a more creative and imaginative existence.Only once we achieve this holistic spiritual global perspective, We reach a consciousness that is sustainable and a renewable creative imagination .
      Allow yourself the experience of Self discovery. you would be amazed on your Results. Deep meditation while listening to your inner voices.is of utmost importance!!

    May 20 2013: This is a good discussion. We all face emotional and mental challenges of varying difficulty. And for some, those challenges can be totally overwhelming. We must strive to be compassionate and understanding and positive for the sake of everyone. There is already enough negative thought and negative action in the world. If you look, you can find violence, or record of violence everywhere. And that violence diminishes us all. Anger and violence contribute little to the harmony and peace of the world.

    Please be careful. Be thoughtful. And above all, learn to quietly monitor your own thoughts. Meditation does that. And I like this thread because it promotes meditation. We all need to strive daily to achieve a peaceful, and serene manner of existence.

    May 16 2013: From my humble personal experience and standpoint - there is no such thing as multiple personalities. It's just about thinking a lot. Too much neuroactivity can make some poeple confused as it can lead to too many questions, conflicts and paradoxes, but there are ways out of it - listening and asking the right questions.

    To support this, here's some entertaining examples from my long, useless and hurtful, debilitating, akward, embarrassing, non-random, imposed conversations with prejudiced, incompetent therapists (I'm not sure they work anymore, some of them shouldn't):

    "Do you see things that others cannot see?"
    "Well, I can see you now and we're alone in this office, others don't see you, does that count?"

    "Do you know the word 'infrastructure'?
    "I'd like a new therapist, please."

    "Do you hear voices?"
    "I've just heard yours, does that count?"

    Best wishes, Yusuf, I'm not sure this helped answer the question. Here'a nother question that just came to my mind - Is being 'gifted' really a 'gift' in some situations?
  • May 16 2013: What is the common Root to all of these multiple personalities?
  • thumb
    May 16 2013: A simple and a truthful person is a gifted person.

    One need not have multiple personalities to be gifted.

    Every one of us have a trait and we know it ,it becomes disease when we are removed far away from the reality.
  • May 16 2013: :-) What do you mean by this word Gifted?

      May 16 2013: To me, a simple and a truthful person is a gifted person.
  • May 14 2013: I read that certain theapists are good at accidentally creating mutiple personalities.

      May 14 2013: Hi George its True!! In order to get to the know the patient. Therapist have to understand the root causes of the DID. So in fact they create and establish communication with Multiple personalities. Doing could be very detrimental to their intentional results, because they establish superiority to the new identity other than the Centred identity. But this new personality, due to their lack of strength are in a very fragile state, due to the bombardment of other personalities seeking recognition. So when they think they have a breakthrough, another personality supersedes the vice president. The only real therapy is gaining the audience with the Original or centred identity and build its confidence to take control.

      This is a lengthy process and require lots of stimulation and interaction. Drugs and medication disrupts the process, to attain positive results. It further pushes the President into a negative stasis mode, Allowing other Personalities to take control and that is bad. Because the longer the President is lost the more difficult it is to regain control and get that personality back again.

      Thank you for your response!!
