I agree that most everyone can dissociate to some degree. Would you say that DID in the MPD sense is simply farther down the road, maybe even at the end of it? Now, there are obviously not 2-20 physical people in a body, but I guess I believe that alters in a true DID (MPD) case are a tad more than "moods", that there are very different personality characteristics, even good or evil. And working out the trauma is always the way to healing, but a lot of the trauma has to be accessed through these alters, which is not so easy to do. My real question here is: have you read any research regarding changes in eyesight, ability to tolerate medication, etc. between alters? That would seem to be more than simple mood alterations, wouldn't it?

P.S. May I presume you do not believe in multiple personality disorder, only types of dissociation without the actual development of "personalities"?
