Split personality. Abstract image of a woman's face depicting "split" personality. Her face is shown in four different states of emotion. Split personality is also known as multiple personality disorder. It is a rare form of mental illness in which a person has two or more personalities, each dominating at different times. The personalities are usually completely different as in the story of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. This image may otherwise depict schizophrenia, a state of deluded thinking in which reason and logic is distorted. Some schizophrenics also suffer from hallucination.
