So let’s talk about the subject at hand and learn what are;

Alter Ego: Another side of oneself; a second self—

Dual Personality: The characteristic way that a person thinks, feels, and behaves; the relatively stable and predictable part of a person’s thought and behavior; it includes conscious attitudes, values, and styles as well as unconscious conflicts and defense mechanisms. Personality traits are simplefeatures of normal and abnormal personalities. Personality types are categories applicable to both normal and abnormal personalities; usually they belong to a coherent typology, such as introvert/extrovert or oral/anal/phallic.

Dissociative Identity Disorder:  (DID) is a severe condition in which two or more distinct identities, or personality states are present in—and alternately take control of—an individual. The person also experiences memory loss that is too extensive to be explained by ordinary forgetfulness.

Borderline Personality Disorder: Most of the time, signs of the disorder first appear in childhood. But problems often don’t start until early adulthood. Treatment can be hard, and getting better can take years. Problems with emotions and behaviors are hard to improve.

So let’s talk…Do you notice any similar character traits between the Alter EgoDual PersonalityDissociative Identity Disorder or Borderline Personality Disorder ?

Some of the traits include the alters’ characteristics—including name, reported age and gender, vocabulary, general knowledge, and predominant mood—contrast with those of the primary identity. Certain circumstances or stressors can cause a particular alter to emerge. The various identities may deny knowledge of one another, be critical of one another or appear to be in open conflict.
