Multiple personality disorder. Abstract computer image depicting a young woman suffering from multiple personality disorder. Her contorted face shows multiple facial images superimposed onto it. Multiple personality disorder is also known as "split" personality. It is a rare form of mental illness in which a person has two or more distinct personalities, each dominating at different times. The personalities are usually completely different and are often polar opposites as in the story of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. This image may otherwise also depict schizophrenia, a state of paranoid and deluded thinking, including distorted logic and hallucination.
