There are a variety of dissociative disorders but all have the same basic symptoms: depersonalization (feeling like you are outside yourself) and/or derealization (the external world is unreal).


Answer by  Zoe (2369)

There are multiple dissociative disorders. If you are talking about dissociative identity disorder, the person will have multiple distinct personalities that will take over possibly without his/her awareness.


Answer by  psych2 (27)

Dissociative disorders involve disruptions or breakdowns of memory, awareness, identity and one's perception. The DSM-IV-TR lists five different dissociative disorders; depersonalization, dissociative amnesia, dissociative fugue, dissociative identity disorder, and dissociative disorder otherwise non-specified. All generally involve the disruptions listed, but differ in slight ways.


Answer by  Zoe (2369)

There is more than one dissociative disorder. If you're thinking of dissociative identity disorder that is characterized by a person having more than one fully formed identities or personalities with their own names, ages, wants and wishes. Dissociative fugue involves a person moving away because they think they're someone else and then move back after remembering who they are.
