No. There is absolutely no such thing as MPD ( anyhow, now even the fanatics who diagnose it everywhere call it DID ). Dissociation occurs, and can complicate a number of disorders. MPD is caused by naive and fanatical therapists who teach people how to behave in the ridiculous fashion they then call MPD. Without exposure to such a quack therapist, MPD does not occur. As my chapter in a major textbok on the subject demonstrates.
Sadly, when someone with a natural talent for dissociation meets such a therapist, they always become much more sick, epecially when in "therapy" with such a therapist, and whatever might have been troubling them at the start, they are soon trained to have 400 "personalities", such as a cloud, a duckling, and people with peculiar behaviours. As soon as their funds run out ( such "therapy" is never cheap ) and they get dumped ( as always seems to happen ) and their care is taken over by a normal shrink who doesn't believe in MPD, these ridiculous symptoms dusappear and they grow better.
If you ever run into a shrink who thinks you may have MPD --- keep on running !
