Can spirits have split personalities? Split personality is a disorder that is defined by or characterized by the presence of two or more distinct and complex identities or personality states each of which becomes dominant and controls behavior from time to time to the exclusion of the others and results from disruption in the integrated functions of consciousness, memory, and identity – called also multiple personality dissociate identity disorder. That is the dictionary definition and is quite long winded.. Psychologists will tell you that the human mind is so complex and has so much unexplored potential. Its believed that somewhere in your life caused by trauma, abuse (physical, sexual or mental), parts of your personality is repressed and manifests itself into split personalities.
What is your mind though? A body part, like your fingernail or your heart? What about that voice in your head, the part of you that thinks, that feels? Interesting question isn’t it?

Talk about a needle in the haystack! My view is that if your soul/voice in your head can house more than one personality, then easily one could imagine that a spirit afflicted with this condition could exist. My bigger question is what happens when one and not the other personality “crosses over”? What happens next? Does one personality become dormant? Is it merged or waiting to be merged with the other(s)? Lots of questions which of course is what we are here to find out.
