    Title says it all, weather having multiple personalities is a disorder or not.

    As long as they're all amiable I suppose it wouldn't matter.

    Few people legitimately have disassociative identity disorder or a similar condition. Most people are just batshit crazy and want to justify it.

    Its a very serious commitment with someone who has that disorder. It can be be very emotionally taxing.

    No, because that would be the same as dating several different guys. That's just too much work.

    If said person can have access to different personalities, from intellectual, executive and jock, would you? Or have a mind neurochemically structured, at least temporarily, into that of a jock who then just happens to have the memories, developments, habits and dispositions of an intellectual? Through activating certain neuroreceptors myself, by any number of ways like medication, thought processes, meditation, weird ass food, change of environment, etc, etc, I can have weird ass interests in a myriad of physical activities (that I deny myself from pursuing) and leave the world of the mind for the world of the senses. Sound hot to you? As somewhere in doing this is a major scientific discovery...

    A renowned psychiatrist told me a couple of years ago that in his opinion, there is no such thing. Most of the so-called "documented cases" have turned out to be fraudulent, outright hoaxes, or misdiagnoses of psychosis. It is well-established, for instance, that "Sybil" was almost complete fiction.

    Which of the personalities has syphilis?

    And which personality is a top? Bottom? Vers? Into fisting? All the variables.

    See I was spending time researching "Einstein's Brain" and all I found were papers and expert opinion just going on and on about how similar it was to anyone else's brain and not really knowing why his was different (his brain was physically smaller and weighed less than average), and then came more recent opinion finding that Einstein's brain supposedly had a greater concentration of something called glial cells than the average person, but all the expert opinion was dead set on the idea of that it was the brain's morphology in general, that is the say the physical structure of the brain, which includes its cells (having ruled out size), was the basis of Einsteins genius and intelligence in general (I actually doubt his genius myself, and consider him a marketing phenomenon than anything else, especially after knowing he licensed his image and name to the number one university in Israel...), and simply made the intuitive leap that among geniuses and intellectuals, and other higher orders of men (and women, as women in general have structurally different looking brains from men, like smaller ventricles for example), that such is a neurochemical phenomenon of some kind, and that such individuals are simply fortunate to be disposed with such neurochemistry (of which I have to probably explain in more detail much much later), but it often comes at the expense of living in the moment and never adequately experiencing the senses (which I myself got a dose of finally, and for a while, on key medication, that was prescribed for procrastination).

    In certain cultures its actually expected that people have different personalities in one person but they find ways to regulate or adjust it. Like peasants from a Southern Chinese background in general (which you can include sub-par 1st generation Chinese doctors in the US), people are expected to have high levels of anxiety, stress and insecurity and will become very introverted and withdrawn from it, but can become happy and extroverted if things go well for them. The issue then, is how can they be "forever" happy and experience long lifespans and not have to be withdrawn persons and die short lives...

    I want to actually answer this question more appropriately, and I can even think of people who readily go through different personalities within a given hour, but they don't have dissociating personalities per se, as was suggested in the Sybil example, and I think being bipolar even constitutes what people think when it comes to multiple personalities, as such people experience intense highs and lows (it's like people on cocaine (not including myself, as I get paradoxical reaction to things even when I know that I never took cocaine) and then experiencing withdrawal symptoms)), giving them a capacity to do things in one instance, but not the next, etc, etc, that certain individuals that I have hung out around, or even monitored at a distance, have different “personalities” if we can define personality without the lines the DSM outlines for various personality disorders and not by what constitutes dissociative disorder, and limit the idea of personality to how one processes, perceives, reacts and acts in a given day on average, you can have the idea that people have singular personality, people with multiple personalities, and a personality of multiplicity that I possess.

    ---

    Actually this is a topic I have to save for a much much later time, my brain is leaving me, and I don't know if I can make sense... And I have to talk about top vs bottom vs versatile at one point as well, as my mere speculations when it comes to such is probably more insightful that the vast majority things written here.

    And "issues" of sex like lowered inhibitions, desired sex positions, and not mere same sex desire or of bizarre fetishes, is an issue of personality, or neurochemistry, than it will ever be as an issue of experience, or things figured out by experience...but I still have to prepare what I have to say on that too within a further 3 or 6 months... And I have to write a very long post about drugs and clarify what I need to say on that too...

    Actually no, but I need to learn it in order to properly describe things that I think I figured out. I'm not what they call an "applied scientist" or positivist, as I do science by intuition, speculation, inference and by other untraditional means first.

    Oh what I wanted to say before I lost my thought a couple hours ago was that most gay men are basket cases as it is already, and dating a guy with multiple personalities may be the least of your problems...

    Growing up in Florida rapid changes in weather patterns were more the norm than a disorder. Having said that, I'd prefer a climate like La Jolla where I wouldn't have to deal with weather having multiple personalities.

    Would one of his personalties know the difference between "weather" and "whether"? That one could be a keeper.
