types of singlets/singletons
Solider For Singlets: *grabs megaphone* “fictives aren’t real! all of you are faking unless you have a diagnosis! DID is so serious no one knows they have it!! you’re all attention seekers!”
The Oblivious One: “huh? DID? what’s that! i’ve only ever heard of MPD—”
Knows It All (but not really): knows one person with DID and so therefore, they think they know everyone about all people with DID as apparently, everyone’s the same, has read the WebMd article on DID
The System Helper: has read several research papers/articles on DID and/or has spent hours on forums, reading lots of accounts of people’s expierences, is as understanding as a singleton could be, calls out people’s misconceptions
The System Medic: “of course you’re real! :D”, gives out free hugs, validates everyone in your system, does kids stuff with your system’s kid alters, is innocent and helpful
The Fiction Lover: has seen most movies made about DID, except for the non-horror, non sensationalized ones, takes them seriously and thinks their portrayal of DID is No Big Deal and effects absolutely no one
The Crusader: Lots of righteous indignation towards mean singlets, gatekeepers, and persecutors/abusers. Actually scares or has scared your abuser introject a few times. Often right there when System Nonsense ™ is happening.
The Fanatic: Doesn’t know much about DID, but thinks it’s really cool. The more fictives there are, the more cool it is. Might still call it MPD, and might decide that they should call bullshit when there are more than a certain number of alters or fictives, but really, what does that do?
The Fetishizer: Finds out there’s a M/M couple in your system and wants to know about their sexual exploits because “soooo hawt and sinful!!” May overlap with The Fanatic.
singletons/singlets can only rb this if they’re tagged in it. let your friends and enemies know exactly what kind of singleton they are.
inspired by that ‘kinds of allistic people’ post
feel free to add some and i’ll add them to the original !
