Multiple Personality Day
(Also known as Dissociative Identity Disorder Awareness Day)
Multiple Personality Day is observed next on Tuesday, March 5th, 2024 (7 days from today).
Multiple Personality Day is known for two distinct approaches. And to recognize this day, March 5 every year is taken as Multiple Personality Day.
First, let's talk about our own personality. Personality is the stable psychological characteristics of people, which directly affect the thoughts, actions, and words of each person. A person can have a lot of different personalities and can also share the personality of other people. However, in reality, we ourselves may be showing many different personality traits when faced with a different object, event, or person. It seems that our personality is being changed by the surrounding factors. Precisely because the change in our thinking and personality depends on external factors, one aspect of Multiple Personality Day is that people focus on thinking, learning to understand personality traits our own way.
Another aspect that Multiple Personality Day shows us is raising awareness about personality disorders. Multiple personality disorder is often referred to as multiple personality disorder. This mental illness is also known in English as Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) - dissociative identity disorder which is a very complex problem for even psychologists.
The personality disorder was formerly known as psychopathy or psychopathy. The prevalence of personality disorders in many countries around the world is about 2.3%.
Maybe you have had moments of daydreaming, no longer aware of what is happening and feeling like you are being cut off from the world around you when working too hard. Multiple personality disorder is also a form of isolation from the environment, but more severe. This is a mental process that causes you to lose connection with your own thoughts, memories, feelings, actions, or personality.
Determining the authenticity of multiple personality disorder is difficult. Many people believe that multiple personality disorder is only caused by the patient's paranoia. Some experts consider this to be an offshoot of borderline personality disorder. Statistics show that the prevalence of multiple personality disorder is from 0.01% to 1% of the world population. And the ratio of men to women is 1/5.
Causes of multiple personality disorder
During the first years of life , Multiple personality disorder is especially easy to establish and develop. Children who are neglected or abused psychologically, sexually or physically during this period are very vulnerable to their personality development. Up to 99% of people with multiple personality disorder experience ongoing, overwhelming, and life-threatening abuse at a sensitive stage of development (before age 9).
The character Kevin Wendell Crumb in the movie Split also experienced a violent childhood with psychological trauma that persisted into adulthood. This guy has multiple personality disorder and has 24 personalities because his mother beat and punished too cruelly when he was only 3 years old.
Multiple personalities affect each person's life very differently. It's mostly problems, which can be very small with somebody but can also be very large with another. Personality affects marital and family relationships more than their work. One of the significant effects of polymorphism on human life is memory impairment. This will greatly affect the lives of people with this disease.
