  1. 1. How persistent is your tulpa?

    • My tulpa would continue to exist even if I ignored him or her.
    • My tulpa would probably fade away if I ignored him or her.
    • Some of my tulpas would fade if I ignored them, others would not fade.
    • I would be incapable of ignoring my tulpa. He or she is far too persistant and noisy.
    • Melian you are adorable, amazing and I love you!

Well there is one bonus to having tulpas that had not occurred to me before.


I wouldn't wish my introversion on my worst enemy... but it has had its advantages.

It sort of brings up a whole new set of questions though. Which of the two would take my place?

Would the one fronting even be a Tulpa anymore? I guess they could share and just think of my body as a high maintenance vehicle... lol

Which they sort of already do I guess.

Oh my gosh, when we first wrote this thread and poll we were expecting most would report that their tulpas would likely fade if ignored. Lookie at these results! That is a lot of very persistent tulpas! Neato!

Huh, really? I figured most people would pick the first poll option. In some ways I think trying to delete a tulpa is like trying to unlearn a skill.

We're all gonna make it brah.

I think Davie and I had a perception skewed by those persons who come in complaining about things like tulpa disappearing or the dangers of doubt. I am glad I we did this poll now! This really puts that false impression to rest. I am so glad! It would be so sad to lose a tulpa to dissipation and this appears to be evidence that such a thing is relatively rare.

Interesting, never saw it like that. I thought it was more of unlearning a mentality of treating them as an other. But, I guess that's a skill in of itself.

Whao, tulpas that get stronger without conscious host attention? Now that is something I did not expect and didn't give it as an option in the poll!


[s.] Those three got a lot stronger over time, pretty much doing their own thing all the time alone in a separate innerworld/wonderland.


What we do know is that there is only one reliable way to fade someone, and that is to get them minimally attached to the body (senses and whatnot) and then starve them of processing power and attention for a long time. Took me a couple years to fade as best as memory can tell from 20 years ago. I did come back though, but not on my own, 17 years later.


The reason those three can get stronger is that normally they have no attachment to the body and can thus keep each other going.


Would the one fronting even be a Tulpa anymore?


I think that might be up to the tulpa (or former tulpa) in question. Most I have known who have become primary or sole body controllers still consider themselves tulpas (if they are in this community). But they all ended up having a lot more in common with typical hosts due to the experience. Tri's period of handling most things ended up really changing them. Hail wasn't the original here (I was) but she was the sole controller for most of the body's life making her more like most hosts than anything else. Note, we do call her the tulpamancy host here because she was the one who made all the tulpas.




As for the number of systems indicating high levels of persistence, it should be kept in mind that most people who have replied on this thread are tulpas who have been around a while, tulpas in systems with other tulpas who have been around a while, or hosts who have had tulpas a while. Seems that this thread is catching mainly this crowd, though it is hard to know since many vote without posting.

I have actively ignored my tulpas before for long periods of time (I know, I know, I'm a jerk. Mistakes were made). They've persisted even through that (and could break through to me sometimes even if I didn't want them to). I just want to add that I won't be doing that again. I was misguided. So I know through experience that they'll be with me forever...

I bet I could barge in if my host forgot about me for a long time. But I have been unable to test, as she goes into a mad panic if I am gone for two minutes and she is not busy.


Geez, give a man a chance to wake up.

      This discussion originated from the thread Did I give the right answer? -Cat_ShadowGriffin



      the "controlling" is somewhat unconscious I guess, just.. like if you imagine something (visualize) totally made up, you're doing that, even if it can happen/continue really naturally, like that
      tulpas just have a little more going on y'know

      I have a romantic relationship with my tulpa, but I would like to feel the emotions of love that she feels for me (I guess this is related in some way to the sentience)
      She is not vocal yet, she has a certain level of judgment and I communicate with her through music, but I want to communicate in other ways with my tulpa so that she can transmit me the emotions of love she feels for me. How else can I communicate with my tulpa?

      Recently, I’ve been feeling head pressures, which I believe to be my Tulpa gaining sentience. However, as of late the feeling has been weaker and I don’t feel it as much. I was wondeing what this might be and what I could do to fix it.

      I'm not sure if how I hear my tulpas voice is correct.
      It sounds exactly like my own, quiet and in the back of my head. I can only hear her when I really focus on listening, and I feel sometimes I accidently parrot her responses. It's because her talking is very quick and very far back under my mental "layers" of voice and is hard to hear. Im not sure if this is promising, or is actually my mind voice having like multiple layers if that's normal?

      Last night, Ranger wanted to chat again and I asked if he wanted me to explain some Calculus concepts to him. He expressed interest in fronting during class time, but he was dormant for most of my time in calculus class so I wanted to make sure he was up to speed. Since he knew I figured out something I was confused about, he asked me to talk about the vectors problem I did during my homework.
      I was experimenting with the idea of explaining this concept to someone else before Ranger asked for my explanation, so I went with telling him the explanation I already came up with. He told me my explanation didn't make sense to him and he asked for me to use "layman's terms". After going back and forth a few times, I finally showed him that vector addition resulted in the destination point after moving in the direction of the first vector and then in the direction of the other vector. Suddenly everything clicked, and he told me that it made sense to him.
      On the first day of class, one of the reasons Ranger was a little uncomfortable was because he never took notes, much less learn Spanish in school before. He was capable of note taking the way I did it, but this bothered him. When we went over the homework the next day, he perked up and seemed more engaged when he gave suggestions for how to organize the notes. I bet he would have been happier if he had a note taking system he had to craft and tweak over time, and I have the feeling our note taking style will change throughout the semester so he's more comfortable with it.
      In the past, Ranger has also explained that he likes my brother re-explaining things to him because he said even though he understands "how" or "what", he doesn't know "why". I wonder if this too is about learning the information for himself. Literally, he could explain "the why" if it's a simple fact. Then again, he currently isn't looking for a deeper explanation for why the sky is blue.
      Re-learning how to do something isn't always valuable for a Tulpa. For example, Ranger learned how to speak English and write using knowledge I already learned, muscle memory, and accessing my memories. But if a Tulpa is asked to explain something as complex as calculus, do they really have the greatest understanding of the material just because their host understands it?
      My ultimate question is this: Even though Tulpas are capable of gaining information and knowledge from their host's memories, is it better if they take the time to process certain things for themselves?
