Split personality. Abstract image of a woman with two blurred faces on her head symbolising her "split" personality. Split personality is also known as multiple personality disorder. This 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. The image may depict schizophrenia, a state of deluded thinking in which reason and logic is distorted. Some schizophrenics also suffer from hallucination. Alternatively the image could be showing general confusion, anxiety or stress.
