    I've always wanted to meet someone who had a split personality. I wonder if they enjoy it or if they want to get rid of it but they can't. The movie from the 50's called psycho was freaking scary. For those who haven't seen it, it's about a boy who works at a motel by himself, he tells the people who visit that his mother lives in the house behind the motel. A curious man and women try to get a look at his mother to see if she is real or what. They always here an old womens voice in the room upstairs but never get a glimpse of her face. Blah blah blah, it shows that for a while then at the end they chase the boy to the house and look through the window and he's dressed up in his moms clothes and has a wig on...he's carrying her skeleton everywhere he goes and is making her voice. Come to find out she abused him mentally and he was so used to doing everything she told him that he couldn't live on his own so he got a split personality that was his mothers and it took over his body and he was never normal again.

    a friend of mine has about 7 people in her head... she enjoys them, and generally they're a fairly positive part of her life.

    Luke: I haven't seen ME MYSELF & IRENE, but from what I understand the character isn't schizophrenic. He has multiple personalities, right? Multiple Personalities and Schizophrenia are very different afflictions.
     
  12. Are they? I didnt know....can you explain please?

    schizophrenia translates to split-brain (or something very similar), but the symptoms are things like hallucinations (of any of the senses), delusions, and unusual thinking (thus the split-brain).

    whereas multiple personality disorder is a person with... well, multiple personalities.

    i'm a psych student! :p

    The movie "Sybil" with Sally Field would probably depict a more realistic view on dissociative identity disorder. It was based on a true story & from what it shows, it doesn't look like she enjoyed it so much.

    I think she means Sybil

    Right....ok. I think the movie points out that traumatic life events can cause one to lose touch with reality (sort of as a coping mechanism). In this case, Sybil was sexually & physically abused as a child by her mentally unstable mother.

    thanks, ya i heard it was pretty good. My friend recently read a book about the same lady. Is Sybil more in the style of a documentary or a flick?
