Do we all have multi personality disorder

Many times I have heard people talk of having different persona. Is this true? Do we have an "Internet" and "Real World" persona? Is it true that the same person reacts differently to a post and a verbal question. What do you think?

    Feb 6 2012: yes. we react to the same situation in different ways evrytime before we know about the situation and after the situation. for instance, a person who is blamed for a mistake by people before knowing the actual reason for his deed is also sympathized for d same deed if he has done that due to some awkward situation he had to face.
    for eg. a person went to a park with his child. he made them sit in a corner and sat nearby closing his eyes. by this time the child notoriously plucked all the flowers, createda mess in d park. people around were pissed by the behaviour of the child and were blaming the guy to be a lousy and irresponsible father.one of the people over there went to him and woke him up and solded him for being such a irresponsible ather. the father apolozised for his mistake. then he said that 15 mintues ago the same child was crying out his heart on his mothers corpse.if he had taken the child home he might have died crying too thatsy he bought him to the park to divert his mind and forget his mother for a while. on which the guy showed a sign of empathy. so do we have in our mind before knowing the reason and after knowing the reason.
    this clearly shows the multi personality of human.
