It depends on your learning style. I did a test for school about learning styles, and it said that I was mostly visual. So it sort of came naturally to work on my visualization. Granted, if you wait for sentience before form/visualization, it could end up being a tulpa stuck inside your head, simply talking to you and not imposing itself. (This is entirely my superstition of what could happen, and since I'm inexperienced, could be entirely wrong.

I would map out a set of base ideas (eg I want it (or he/she) to be a smart, arrogant doctor who treats his co-workers like shit but is emotionally dead inside and takes refuge in that abuse, as well as hookers and drugs). That should be built upon (why is it like that, for example) and focus on the personality. After you feel you have a good personality, work on narration. Then focus on the form, it might gain sentience during those forcing sessions.

That's just me suggesting a change.

Yeah I'm worried about that. Has Dane given us any words of wisdom on this?

Did you make a back story for your tulpa?

>I feel the best way to remember something is to picture it in my head

I believe this works, but I never put it into practice. The fuck do I put down?

I don't think he has, as you are perhaps the first person to ask that.

No. I messed up the process in several parts, but I will continue to do it nonetheless. I'm not going to put down a whole life for Vinyl that I would have to go through, and if I did, there would be some repercussions. Like for example, she might ask what happened to her family? Or where is Octavia(her friend)? I just went without it. You are basing it off Zelda, as you said before. That at least has some backstory (son of a powerful father, has one of the triforce triangles, ect.), so you could work with that.

The links section, as I mentioned before. I just imagine Vinyl standing still, and I spin her around in my mind like google earth. I can focus on any angle like that. Once again, links section.

I'm not. But that gave me a great idea.

I'm very confused about this post. I was talking about the first question on this:

He has, iirc. Once I get home, I'll look up what he said about it.

I recall him talking about it often, but I can't seem to find the copypasta. However, it is in the FAQ: http://www.tulpa.info/guides/frequently-...l#sec-2-16

FAQ Wrote:Can I make my tulpa sentient and vocal first and then start on form?

Of course! And no, this will not result in the tulpa not wanting a body later or anything like that. It's just easier for some people to work with their tulpa on the body, if they have no idea about it or are having trouble. One would do this by simply working longer on personality and narration.

Oh. I remember reading that now.

Doing personality>narration>visualization seems beneficial because honestly, by the time you're done visualization you've probably lost some of the personality you tulpaforced.
