Normal, but sometimes unusual, not psychotic or anything Dissociative Amnesia: you dissociate bad things from your brain and other thoughts. There is no evidence of this. Just case studies of people who are dead. Extreme example of repression. Dissociative Fugue Disorder: experience a stressful event, you not only obliterate the experi- ence, but you go somewhere else but you create a new identity for yourself. Create a fictional history for yourself. Dissociative Identity Disorder: multiple personality disorder. Occurs when an individual has two distinctly different personalities. They are unaware of the other personality. You have anoth- er personality/person to experience other things for you.
