How can memory loss caused by a dissociative identity disorder be distinguished from the loss caused by oppression?

It all depends on exactly what you mean.

In fact, you have already made this distinction.Purely by indicating that it is two different things.

But if your question means: how can anyone who has memory loss know whether it is suppression or to DIS?Then it becomes a completely different story.

Robert explains the differences between oppression and dissociation quite well.But that does not help the person himself. I also do not think this is possible. Someone has to know a lot about themselves (for example: I suffer from DIS or not) to be able to do a throw at it.

And if someone has DIS, it’s another story.Someone with DIS does not suffer from memory loss. That sounds paradoxical, but if you look at Roberts example, the personality that has gone to the film has not been given the whole film, but another personality though. Together they know how the evening has expired. The problem arises only when someone does not know that he has multiple personalities, or they cannot communicate with each other. My partner, for example, has 21 personalities, and those have with each other a memory like an elephant. They have to do a bit of their best when it comes to it, but together they know to reconstruct almost every hour of every day. The events that have been so traumatic for them that they have pushed them. And there are only one or two.

Let me start by asking you a question.

You don’t have to give me the answer to Quora.

What did you eat at breakfast this morning?

Almost everyone will be able to answer that question easily.

It is very unlikely that your breakfast was so traumatic, that you have pushed it.Unless you and roommate have tried, to kill you during breakfast, but that chance is not great.

If someone forgets small, mundane and insignificant things, even an hour after they have happened, there is much greater chance of a dissociative disorder than a displacement process.[Let us disregard other possibilities. Such as brain damage or old age dementia.

If we go to the film together and that film is very boring for you, you will not be pushing it.

But when I go to a boring film with someone with DIS, a dissociative identity disorder, it is possible that the alter who has been there with me is relieved by another part that the film has not seen and therefore can not give an answer to the V Raag

鈧?艗where did the film go about and what did you feel about it? 鈧?/p>

If I ask you a question about your childhood, you will probably be able to answer.Even if you have a deeply traumatic experience that you have pushed out.

Apart from THIS experience, you will be able to remember a lot of your childhood.

But if someone says to me:

鈧?艗i cannot remember anything about what happened before my tenth year, there could be a dissociative identity disorder.


Because people with DIS do not have a trauma that they have pushed out.


Another difference between displacement and dissociation, I am not easily able to pull up the material.

But at dissociation you can sometimes easily talk about what has been forgotten, if you just ask the right alter, which was in consciousness, when the event took place.

If a person complains about food at home, they don’t lust, while she only lives; Or about ugly clothes that she would never buy but hanging in her closet, there is probably a dissociation and of another part of the personality, which keeps ban other clothes than the protagonist.

This also applies to other manuscripts or keeping a diary with multiple names, while you refer to yourself.

These are in short scope some differences between displacement and dissociation.
