I've been looking into multiple personalities. Both the positive and negative aspects and how the people with this type of condition manage in society.
http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/life_and_style/article6250768.ece This article was really interesting, about how a woman developed multiple personality disorder as a coping mechanism after years of abuse.
http://www.buzzle.com/articles/personality-traits-list.html This seemed worth a peek. Bit simplified.
Basically the idea I'm toying with is: trying to communicate the convergence of several distinct personalities within one person. A comment on how a person changes to adapt to the situation they find themselves in and how they are perceived by the people alongside them in these situations.
What I've been reading about Multiple Personality Disorder, while interesting to me, doesn't seem very relevant. I'm not looking at anything as extreme as that. Just everyday people... :)
