  1. First off, allow me to apologize. I'm sorry that my first post is a question in a new thread, but I guess that's just how that goes. Okay, so I only heard about tulpae ~3 weeks ago, and it took me a week to overcome the fear of a forced hallucination and mental schism. However, I've been passively working on personality for ~2 weeks (on paper, not forcing) and I've gone through several revisions of what I want in a life-long friend, starting from a character-based tulpa, and moving to one not resembling the character in the sleightest. But over the revisions, my tulpa's planned personality seems to be veering closer and closer to my own. My concern is, if the personality if too different, my tulpa could become very grating on me, but if the personality is too similar, my tulpa could become very boring, so I was wondering: tl;dr How different is your tulpa's personality from your own? Do you have any specific examples, and could you give your feelings on how that difference is a good or a bad thing? I'm just trying to get a general feel for how differences manifest in the relationship between a tulpa and its creator. I mean, this thing's for life, and I plan on living for quite a while still, but perhaps I'm just a little over cautious. I greatly appreciate any responses in advance.
  2. Basically, I have an idea, and I'd like to hear what you guys think- that the subconscious is actually better at making Tulpae then the conscious mind. I thought of this due to how the creation of my Tulpa, Kay, has turned out. See, I set out with a specific primary goal- I wanted someone who would help me be a more productive person. I've always had trouble accomplishing things, whether it be important things, like work, to casual things, like personal projects. So I wanted someone who would help motivate me to get off my ass. My initial strategy for this was to make a personality that was very sensible and thought out- someone who knew how important it was to not slack off, and knew the consequences of not doing things. But as we got further and further along, I noticed that Kay was being the exact opposite. She was rash and spontaneous, with a taste for adventure. And I realized- that's exactly what I needed. I already did enough thinking of my own accord. I needed a do-er, someone who didn't hem and haw about things, and just DID them. So Kay turned out to be perfect, by going against everything I did to try and make her that way. My subconscious did a better job then my conscious would have done alone, and I find this interesting. I also find it encouraging- even if you are doing a bad job, it will still work out, because the Tulpa creation process doesn't really pay attention to your means, it pays attention to your goals.
  3. my tulpa seems mad at me? i keep asking her whats wrong and she wont tell me? she's 8 days old. I think she thinks im going to get rid of her or something. what can i do guys? it might help if i added a little more detail. well ever since i made her she was so affectionate with me, but for the past 2 days or so she seems so distant and frustrated. she's not being herself. Any number of things could have caused this and shes not telling me whats can i get her to tell me? i want her to be happy.....
  4. hey, today i went tulpaforcing, ive been doing this for about two weeks now. When i work on my tulpa's personality, i picture an orb, it glows and i can stick my hand through it and grab little pieces of paper with traits written on them. Today when i went tulpaforcing to work on personality a bit more, the orb wasnt glowing any longer, and had a black crown like object in it, the orb itself seems like white plastic and i can no longer reach inside it, i cant even picture it back to how it was. So, did my tulpa gain sentience already and limited my acess to its personality or is this just my brain being a dick?
  5. Here's the blueprint I'm going to use for my tulpa. First, I have several broad and important traits I want my tulpa to have, including Loyal, Respectful, Selfless, and Courageous. I'm writing each one as such: "You are Loyal." Next, I have more traits that stem from the broader traits. I'll list these underneath the trait they stem from in this form: "Because you are courageous, you are adventuresome." Additionally, some behaviors based on these traits will be added on, like this: "Because you are selfless, you are eager to help others. Because you are eager to help others, you often offer your opinions and advice." Further more, some behaviors and specific traits have will be tied together as such: "Because you are respectful, you expect to be shown respect by others. But because you are selfless, you are not demanding of it." Intelligence is very broad, so I'm using Phi's guide on multiple intelligence and breaking it down in a similar way to the other broad traits. Finally hobbies, interests, and tastes will be added and given reasoning related to traits, behaviors, and types of intelligence. For instance: "Your musical intelligence and open-mindedness mean you have a wide taste in music." I'm writing in a conversational manner (you, you're) instead of a descriptive one because several people have said that it's good to treat a tulpa as sentient before sentience is achieved. This is nowhere near finished; I plan to spend several more days to a week to finish this, but of course it will be done when it's done. I'd greatly appreciate feedback on my blueprint, and suggestions on improvement. Thank you for reading!
  6. To begin I will say that yes, I have read the guides. All of them. I also understand that they are vague for a reason, and that coming up with my own methods for tulpa creation is best. I have also searched "personality" and read through several pages of topics on personality. That being said, I'm still gonna ask this question(s), redundant though they may be. I'm kinda just looking for reassurance that I'm on the right track, and possible get advice on tweaking my process. So far I have not forced at all, I've actually resisted doing so. I know this may sound a bit silly, but I want to make sure I have a good plan laid out before I start. Right now I'm trying to figure out what I want my tulpa's personality to be. I have a general idea of what she will be like and I have listed a bunch of traits and such. I'm trying to get her personality all sorted out before I even start forcing, so when I do force, it will be productive, and I will have a clearer direction. However, I don't really know how I'm supposed to formulate all the intricacies of her personality. Such as, how trait X and trait Y cause her to think Z and see the world in XZ way. I'm not very familiar with how certain traits and aspects of her personality should or would lead her to think this way or that, or perceive the world in this way or that. It all seems extremely complicated and intermingled, everything affecting everything else. Almost like the sum of a million tiny parts add up to equal something greater, with a multitude of possible outcomes. Like a circuit board or something. If that sounds like a bunch of garbled crap to you, well that's because it is. My brain is all jumbled and twisted thinking about the complexity of this whole idea. Basically, I don't want to start forcing, only to say "You are kind because...uh, well....." Am I supposed to know how all of her traits, quirks and nuances work together to form her personality as a whole? Because I'm not sure I could successfully do that. I'm not sure anyone can. For one trait, sure. But for all of them? And not just in a linear fashion, like trait Y causes her to act in X way, but how two or more traits combine to form different outcomes and how all of her traits work together. Also, if I am supposed to know how all of the parts of her personality fit together to form the whole, and how all of them work together, what if I get it wrong, or not all of the parts of her personality are compatible? Am I over thinking this, or is this actually as hard as I'm thinking it is? Do I have to know her whole personality, down to the smallest parts, inside out, backwards and forwards so that her thought process, behavior, world view, self image and everything is entirely mapped out? Or if I have a pretty good idea of what her personality is like, and I have a good amount of traits and behaviors thought out, should I just go from there and the blank spots can be filled in along the way, either by me or her? I've been kinda struggling to get her personality formed, and have been thinking a lot about what she is like, how she would think and act (in general and in specific situations) and specific traits that define her. But I'm just not sure exactly how complex the whole thing is and how specifically I am supposed to map out her personality. So any advice would be appreciated. Right now my mind is a bit scrambled and I'm sure I sound like a babbling moron, I just wanna know if I'm over thinking this or if it really is an extremely complex process. Also, I don't have a name for my tulpa yet. I've read that it helps, even if it isn't the name she ends up with. But choosing a name at random doesn't seem like it would help if it doesn't feel right... so should I pick something largly at random or wait until something comes to me?
  7. Helix would be a mix of Raven, from Teen Titans, a show I used to watch as a kid, and Zone Tan, Toph, from the last air bender, Marceline a character from Adventure Time. and a girl created by a hentai artist. Note: Helix is similar to Zone Tan in both personality and form. Pixel is similar to Starfire, also from Teen Titans, and Pinkie Pie. I would say she's most logical and cautious, sort of like Twilight Sparkle from MLP but not as cautious.
  8. When I go to force, I just feel like I'm floundering. I have all the traits laid out, but when I go to force I can sum up a trait in like 5-10 minutes. Then I spend like 10-15 or so floundering about trying to find some other relevant caveat about the trait to force. I've read the trait template guide by faqman and that helped immensely. However, I find that a lot of the prompts in there just aren't really applicable to a lot of traits (i.e. in what way are her hobbies related to her kindness?). What kind of prompt-y type things do you use to elaborate on traits?
  9. So, I've never really been too afraid of the dark, I mean it's a little unsettling, yeah, but I never found it to be nearly as terrifying as so many made it out to be. In an effort to understand this and try something different I drilled into my tupper a crippling fear of both the dark and the paranormal. I just got back from using the bathroom in the middle of the night and on the trips there and back I was utterly terrified that something would reach out of the dark and grab me. I'm assuming this is because the tulpa was sharing its emotions with me or something like that, but the my question is simply: is this normal?
  10. Alright, so here's the story. Me and my friend have been looking at a lot of slenderman junk, playing slender, reading up on slenderman, watching marble hornets, that kinda thing. For about a week now, I've been seeing slendy wherever I look. When I first forced, (after reading guides and blogs on the forums extensively) things went pretty well, I even got that funny feeling near my spine I hear so much about. The thing is though, ever since I forced, I see slenderman much more vividly for longer periods of time and he now moves. I just now tried forcing again, but every time I got close to beginning, I'd see slenderman right in the center of my vision, and would start to worry that I'm creating a slender tulpa on accident. I know how juvenile this may sound, but it's really messing up my concentration. How can I stop thinking of him altogether, and more specifically, how can I make him stop appearing while i force?
  11. Ok, so I've just finished my second forcing session and this is weird: When I was just rambling to my own brain about having a peaceful, brisk aura, I thought up a statement in the form of a question, and I got a distinct answer. The answer didn't feel "alien" as everyone says, and in fact it even felt like I was thinking it. It took me several tries to not hear the voice, and that was when I was speaking to myself as I would normally and tried "holding my breath" after I finished the question. I know this sounds stupid, but I think the answers are completely unrelated to tulpae and are just my overexcited brain trying to fool me. Any thoughts on what this really is/how I respond to it? If it really is the very beginning of a tulpa then I don't want to silence it. :/
  12. So a lot of people talk about having 2-3+ hour sessions for tulpaforcing, but for me that just burns me out and gives me killer headaches. What I've started doing is apart from doing short, real focus sessions (30-minute sessions spread out through the day), I've been doing what I call Micro-forcing. This is whenever I remember, just cycling through all of the traits that I have worked on already, and thinking about what effect those traits have. These sessions are anywhere from 5-10 minutes, and I do them while I do other things. I couldn't really imagine this working for visualization, but hey, I'm not there yet. I definitely feel like these sessions have helped me, I can list all of Liz's traits that I've worked on so far without really thinking about it. I'd recommend this way, doing an hour of hard focus a day and then another hour of micro-forcing throughout the day. Helps to build the tulpa into your everyday life before the narration starts.
  13. Hello all, The question I present is one, after reading guides and the posts of others, that has come to my attention. After learning of tulpae no more than 3 days ago, I decided I would try and create my own. However, when mapping out personality traits of my tulpa-to-be, I referenced quite a few others and their methods of shaping personality. What it boils down to is that I noticed on the blog that the tulpa's likes and dislikes were included (reference: here). But in my own perception I saw this as some form of parroting. I understand creating a personality that would promote forming these likes/dislikes from the tulpa's own decision (such as creating a punk tulpa, who would naturally like punk music), but flat out telling the tulpa what to like and not like seems a bit too far, I guess. In FAQ man's Personality Guide, he states, "The fact of the matter is, you can never spend too much time on personality." This leads me to believe I must be wrong, but still some part of me thinks dictating likes and dislikes is not something I should do. Perhaps my own understanding of parroting is incorrect, and I would like some input and clarification. tl;dr Can I tell my tulpa what to like and dislike
  14. So this little thing is bugging me. How much can personality differ from planned one? Especially curious if you planned your tulpa more as flawed/realistic rather than mary sue-esque type with tons of traits.
  15. Hey y'all. So I want your thoughts on my personality creation-ing-ness process. What I've been doing is imagining the brain of my tulpa and I've been talking to it about its personality and the traits it has. I have about 43 traits I plan on doing, each going for about 25 minutes (I've done 7 so far). Once I've done that I'm moving onto creating the form, and half way through form creation I will present the brain to the tulpa's body (all throughout form creation I will still be reiterating its personality traits). I should be about 20-30 hours in when giving it, its brain. Anyway whats your opinion on this? How successful do you believe it will be? Are there any risks that this method may cause delayed sentience? etc.
  16. Okay well yesterday, my mom found out i was having a tulpa and said i need to stop before i go through a mental episode, she's a RN shift leader and told me stories of self induced insanity, i don't know if she is overreacting or what, my tulpa understood the conversation and relayed to me that he would be fine with leaving and that i should obey my parents, so i honestly don't know if i should listen and give up my tulpa.
  17. Since school ended I decided to go back to this whole chalupa thing, and to start my permanent tulpa. I have attempted to make tulpae before, but every time I would have to give up because of time constraints. So today I decided to attempt the first part of tulpa making, personality, and i absolutely failed. I am at a complete loss, on what to do even though i have successfully forced many times before on different tulpae. Has this happened to anyone before, and if so what did you do to resolve this problem?
  18. Since I'm usually anonymous, first some basic stuff: I began working on my tulpa on the 28th of March, tulpaforced for 70 hours altogether, out of which 18 hours were spent on personality, 30 on avatar related stuff (visuals, touch, etc) and about 22h on generic conversation. I started narrating on the 25th of April, I guess I narrate about 1 hour every day. There's emotional response, and she can control her avatar decently, although I still tend to parrot unconsciously. However, she can't speak. While it's not really all that late for speech, I'd still like to know if perhaps I'm not doing something right, alternatively, if there's something that could speed up the process; it just bothers me a bit that emotional response and avatar control both happened quite early on (28h and 35h), and speech is taking longer than it took FAQ_man, who had no guides or anything at the time. 5 days ago I changed the way I tulpaforce, before the change I used to tulpaforce whenever I could, as long as I could - that was usually ~50 minutes, 1-2 sessions every day. Now, mostly based on Bluesleeve's and TOG's approach, I tulpaforce for 30 min each session, daily 2-6 sessions. Also most of these recent sessions were spent on that jar-filling personality method TOG had used.
  19. Okay i started personality 3 weeks ago and starting last weekend i have a had a headache every single day, i have also been feeling some wierd mood swings, i can feel euphoric or just plain angry, since i started getting the headaches, i'm thinking it's just the personality forming, but i dunno. What's your guys' take on this.
  20. Has anyone else tried using character development questions when working on developing your tulpa's personality? Character development questions are essentially tools for writers to use when imagining and designing their original characters to give them depth. A quick Google search will provide plenty of questions to use. I think this is a really useful tool, but I haven't come across much info on other people trying it. When I do the questions, I talk directly to my tulpa, so it is very similar to narration. Would this be considered a valid method of logging hours? I think it would definitely help for anyone working on their tulpa.
  21. How would having "conflicting" personality traits (such as 'shy' and 'talkative' or 'skeptical' and 'accepting') work with your Tulpa? Would one cancel out the other completely? Or would it be not be as X because of Y? Or would it be more X at one situation, and more Y at another? I apologize in advance if I sound like an idiot.
  22. I want to make a Pinkie Pie tulpa, but this one has some other traits that I chose for her. What do I do after I have all the traits ready? NINJA EDIT: I've read the guides, it's just that I want to know if I'm ready to start doing narrating or whatever you do next. It can only tell so much.
  23. I've been going though all the guides and a number of different threads, and I keep seeing people say that it's a bad idea to create a tulpa based on a character with a well established personality. However, I'm not seeing any first hand experiences as to why it's a bad idea. People repeatedly state that they "might feel bad because they can't live up to the character on the show", or something to that effect, but how many people have actually had bad experiences with this? If this is true, then whose to say it's not just your subconscious fucking over the personality of the tulpa because you read somewhere that it was a bad idea? Obviously there is no way to prove this, but to me it seems like all the "don't do X or Y will happen" advice may be the root cause of some of these problems, and that without the power of suggestion these issues would never occur. Now, assuming I believe everything I've read on these forums is correct, then how should I go about dealing with the personality issue? If I force the appearance and personality of my tulpa, but explicitly plant the idea that I don't expect her to be exactly like the character she is based on, then is that enough mental preparation to prevent any negative self-respect traits in my tulpa? If not, then would changing a few traits of her personality be sufficient?
  24. I know youre supposed to create some kind of list of traits of likes and dislikes about your tulpa and then tell her how it relates to her and the emotional feeling that comes with that trait and that youre supposed to do each trait for 15 minutes or so. But every time i start to tulpaforce, i kinda forget some of them, i cant really last 15 minutes talking about 1 single trait... i mean how long can you take, i end up just telling her how she is emotionally and personality wise, and how other people would see her, and i try to add different traits from the list as i go on. The thing is, im not sure if im doing it right, or if im supposed to take longer on each trait. any advice or help would be apreciated thanks - Stilyx
  25. I just began creating a tulpa, and I've been having problems with tulpaforcing. Specifically, I always find myself ending up talking at myself and not projecting the personality at the tulpa. Has anyone found an especially effective method for tulpaforcing, or at least keeping your focus on your tulpa?
