what a fantastic day to remember that DID malingering is purposefully claiming to have dissociative identity disorder when you do not, and imitative DID is thinking you have dissociative identity disorder when you do not, without realising.
DID malingering has NEVER been “endogenic system”, “roleplaying favourite characters”, or “has lots of fictives so they’re probably fake :/ ”. it is SPECIFICALLY about dissociative identity disorder and, more often than not, a desire to escape criminal responsibility by trying for the insanity defense (which, by the way, almost never passes as a valid defense). by definition, you cannot be malingering DID if you are an endogenic system because you are not claiming to have DID.
that is all.
