The most common dissociative intrusions include hearing voices, depersonalization, derealization, unwilled and foreign (“made”) thoughts, desires, urges, actions and emotions.
Someone with dissociative disorders feels like having separate alternate identities that take executive control of the body and mind, or “at least” influences her or his behavior from within.
These dissociative identities take over the personality of the patient with DID (Dissociative Disorders). Each identity has its own, independent sense of self, emotional range, religious beliefs, emotional range and autobiographical memories.
Clinicians should use the same terms that patients use to refer to their identities. Such as when they mention to have spirits, demons, “ages of me”, aspects or facets.
