We've been a system for 16 months now and vocality for us was pretty much mature within the first 20 minutes as some of you know. So this discussion isn't about that whole 'achieving vocality' thing, it's about, how does it feel for you now as a mature system? This doesn't exclude new systems as long as you have had clear vocality. For us, regardless of who's fronting, vocality is always a mix of tulpish, 'alien' mindvoice (as in clearly who said what), and questionable mindvoice as if either no one said it, it was translated from tulpish, or it was definitely the fronter (even me when I was fronting)--What we do is accept or decline what was said on our behalf. Here's a few of our anololies: Often when someone says something, Bear will repeat what was said several times afterward, this was proven to be a body OS function as I found myself doing the same thing when I fronted, and I never do that otherwise even when I'm co-fronting. Another anomaly is that the body's mouth often mouths our words wven when the fronter (Bear) is fully associated to it. This can be confusing and lead to doubt as well. (This one didn't happen to me when I fronted.) We'd like to hear your experience and share your thoughts.
This is a digital worksheet that I made with the intent of helping tulpas learn how to speak through practice. Feel free to use whichever parts of the worksheet will be useful to you, and share the results if you like. You can either make a copy of the document to record your tulpa's responses there, record them on a separate doc, or just let them talk without worrying about typing. I'd encourage you to record them, however, if only because it's a nice thing to look back on in the future. If you choose to print this doc, be aware that one of the exercises is mostly hyperlinks, so you will lose information. You should cut out exercises/information you don't need before printing. The worksheet contains 10 exercises, each with 15 examples. The host may feel free to add their own examples as they go along. It is organized from most basic to most advanced. All of the necessary information for understanding the exercises and how to go about using it is in the document. Here is the link. Back-up link. Break-down/description of each exercise. Feel free to create your own uses for these exercises if you don't want to use the document itself. [hidden] Exercise #1: Warm-Up This is a simple word association exercise, in which a word is presented and the tulpa responds with their own word, and (optionally) explains why. Example: - Host: Green - Tulpa: Red, I choose red because... Exercise #2: Fill-in-the-blank/Mad-Libs A noun or adjective is missing from a sentence, and the tulpa is to choose one with an optional elaboration. Example: - Host: The (noun) ate a (adjective) pizza - Tulpa: The dog ate a tasty pizza - Host: Why did you choose these words? - Tulpa: Provides explanation Exercise #3: Preference Two related concepts are presented, and the tulpa will choose which one they prefer and explain why. Example: - Host: Snow or rain? - Tulpa: Snow, because... Exercise #4: Personality Trivia Questions Simple questions are asked to the tulpa, and the tulpa may explain their answer. Example: - Host: What's your favorite color? - Tulpa: Light blue, because... Exercise #5: Conversation The host and tulpa chat about some general topic that interests them. Example: - The host and tulpa discuss the kind of music they listen to. Exercise #6: Image Describing An image is shown to the tulpa, and they are meant to describe it, explain how it makes them feel, talk about what they think about it, etc. Example: - The host provides a picture of a panda, and the tulpa describes it and explains their reactions to it. Exercise #7: Describe this Character A concept of a character is presented to the tulpa, and they are to give it a backstory, a conflict, a physical description, or anything else they can think of. Example: - The host tells the tulpa to describe "Greg the superhero," and the tulpa goes on to explain what he looks like, what his powers are, and how he helps people. Exercise #8: Continue the Story The plot synopsis of a story is given, and the tulpa is to continue it using their own imagination/creativity. Example: - Host: One day, a mysterious stranger leaves a box at everyone's front door in Jeff's neighborhood. - Tulpa: Jeff wants to open the box, but he's afraid because... Exercise #9: Monologue The tulpa finds a topic and then monologues on it without any interruption by the host. Example: - The host brings up animals to the tulpa, and the tulpa is allowed to think and speak about animals without interruption, and their mind meanders freely as they do so Exercise #10: Complex Questions Complex and/or intellectual/philosophical questions are asked to the tulpa to really get them thinking. Example: - The host asks the tulpa to give their opinion on the host's current life situation, and the tulpa then thinks and speaks freely on the subject. [/hidden] (Submitted for Resources)
By parrotnoid, I mean thinking that you're parroting your tulpa when you're actually not, and that nerve-wracking feeling you get when your tulpa's reply feels like you created it a split second before hearing it, and you're scared to death and you's is like "Err mah gerd, Ah'm gonnuh create a serviter!". Well, I made this guide because I had the same problem, and it seems to be pretty prevalent here at Tulpa.info, so I guess I'll take a crack at it, and address some of the top concerns I've seen. - "It feels like I always know what he/she is going to say": That's because you know your tulpa. It's like when you know a friend and their personality really well, and you have a general idea as to what they'll say in reply to something you say. This is even more so with a tulpa, because you know their exact personalities. Expectation is not parroting. - "I'm scared that I'm parroting.": K, 9/10 times, if you're worried that you're parroting, you're probably not. Parroting is a 100% deliberate process, that can only be done by fully conscious action. As far as I know, there's no such thing as "sub-conscious parroting". - "I feel as if I'm creating their reply a split second before I hear it.": Well, that's not you creating it. In the early days of tulpaforcing, this is normal. It's simply your mind and your tulpa computing, taking what they know of the tulpa's personality, and plugging that in to figure out how they'll reply. This will be conquered in time, fret not. - "HELPZ, I'z worried! Am I going to create a servitor?!?!?": No. It's up for debate about the nature of servitors and whether or not they can become full-blown tulpae, but if you're not trying to make a servitor, then you're not. If you're that worried about it, then you've devoted way to much love and affection for your tulpa to ever become a servitor. "It seems as if the response was theirs, but I hear MY mind voice. Is this parroting?": Nope. All this means is that their vocality isn't finished. If you haven't worked on their vocality much, this is perfectly normal ^_^ You can try speech exercises for this, or just wait for it to develope by itself. Either way, try not to get discouraged by this, as it, like many other obstacles in the path of tulpa creation, will be conquered in time. Hope this helps anyone with this problem. Questions, comments, concerns, feel free to leave them.
I notice no one talks much about this while having a problem about it. Usually people complain about their non-vocal sentient tulpa just hardly managing to talk if at all but don't know what to do. So, if your tulpa is trying to talk, or can't really do it, I found a helpful method for getting them to a point where they can start figuring out how to talk. First, if your tulpa has ever talked, even just once, figure out what their "mindvoice" sounded like. Now, get your tulpa in your wonderland, and tell them what you're going to do. You're going to use their mindvoice to say a sentence, and then the tulpa can either try to say it with you at the same time, or you can say one half and they say the other. It should be a simple sentence such as "the rain in spain stays mainly on the plain". Make sure to tell them what sentence you're going to practice on of course. If they don't have a mindvoice, you can either wait until they try to talk or just use whatever voice you want them to use, I imagine they would pick it up anyway. I did this after my tulpa was just barely able to get a single word out, and in just one night we got to a point where she could make whole sentences. While she wasn't too good at talking, we got to a point where it was up to her to practice, so I didn't need to work on it anymore.
