Christopher Rias's insight:

Previously known as multiple personality disorder, dissociative identity disorder (DID) is a condition in which a person has more than one distinct identity or personality state. At least two of these personalities repeatedly assert themselves to control the affected person's behavior. Each personality state has a distinct name, past, identity, and self-image.

Christopher Rias's insight:

Mood disorders are not part of the diagnostic criteria for DID and can be very much a red herring. Signs of amnesia are key though – forgetting things like who people are, not recognizing familiar places, not knowing always what the year is, finding thing they don’t remember buying, contradicting themselves in conversation and then denying it.
With DID symptoms of PTSD are very common, dissociative amnesia and of course the absence of the thought disorders found in psychosis/schizophrenia. With DID having very childlike emotions or behaviors is also a key indicator.

Christopher Rias's insight:

Dissociative identity disorder (DID), once known as multiple personality disorder (MPD) is defined in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders IV (DSM-IV) as the presence of two or more distinct identities or ego states in an individual for whom at least two of these ego states recurrently take control of behaviour.

Christopher Rias's insight:

Most of us have experienced mild dissociation, which is like daydreaming or getting lost in the moment while working on a project. However, dissociative identity disorder is a severe form of dissociation, a mental process, which produces a lack of connection in a person's thoughts, memories, feelings, actions, or sense of identity. Dissociative identity disorder is thought to stem from trauma experienced by the person with the disorder. The dissociative aspect is thought to be a coping mechanism -- the person literally dissociates himself from a situation or experience that's too violent, traumatic, or painful to assimilate with his conscious self.
