Re: What about Multiple Personality Disorder?

Ok, I'm getting a lot more convinced of this idea now, due to a variety ideas from other sources and my own experiences. To some extent the non-dominant hemisphere personality may feel itself to be 'trapped' during day to day life, and may 'break through' in dreams and in quite 'out of character' su...

Re: What about Multiple Personality Disorder?

I was listening to an interview with a woman with Tourette Syndrome on the radio this morning http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01n11cv her most evident verbal tic was the injection of the word 'biscuit' almost every second she was speaking.

Re: Loki's Speech

Looks like the same idea occured to Terry Pratchett Royalty was like dandelions. No matter how many heads you chopped off, the roots were still there underground, waiting to spring up again.

Is NLP Technique Related to Jaynes?
