I made a survey regarding tulpas.

Recommended Posts

I'm curious to know more about other people's experiences with tulpas. My own has been life-changing, and I find the whole concept to be really fascinating.


If you're interested, here is the link. Thanks in advance to those who decide to participate. I will post the results whenever I stop getting responses.


As the description of the survey states, please be patient with me if I made any errors. You're free to suggest changes that you think would improve it.

I answered the survey.


There was a lot of "I don't know" I gave, mostly because I have no idea how old our Sub. Rep. (Subconscious Representative) is. I know I have been thinking about him in 2016, it's possible I created his character concept in 2015. I have no idea when I suspected he first revealed his sentience. I think that scene happened before the wonderland was created, but maybe not because that's where his name Dream either came from or was inspired from (He was originally Ranger). He still prefers Sub. Rep. now though.


My Sub. Rep. took the personality forcing I gave him and ran with it. He is obsessed with representing the unconscious mind to the point of trying to become it. He likes the idea of challenging the line between tulpa and servitor/puppet and for awhile he didn't like the idea of being thought of as a tulpa.


All of which you may not be expecting because Ranger, the tulpa who I spent the most time with, I forced more ""traditionally"" than the others. He was vocal from the start, he rejected me expecting him to be our Sub. Rep. (even though I didn't fully understood that's what I was doing), and he is officially 3 1/2 years old (but could be older by at least half a year to roughly a year).

Not my main form or name really but this nick is my brand now. You may see my headmates call me Gray.

I used to speak in pink and Ranger used to speak in blue (if it's unmarked and colored assume it's Ranger). She loves to chat.

      Hello! I am a student working on a research essay regarding the tulpa community and I have a couple of questions for any tulpamancers who would be willing to answer them and provide me with further to knowledge to aid me in completing this research essay. I apologize in advance if my questions or anything I say come across as offensive, that is not my intention but if it comes across as such please kindly educate me so I can correct my mistakes. Free to answer how many you'd like.
      1. How was your tulpa(s) formed? Was there a specific event in your life that caused the creation of your tulpa(s) or caused you to create one? 
      2.Are tulpa(s) made from will or does something such as a traumatic event need to occur in order to gain one?
      3.. Before having a tulpa were you experiencing any mental illnesses? 
      4.. If so, did your tulpa help with your mental illness by helping you gain a better mental health through increased feelings of positivity and happiness? 
      5.. Are there only positive outcomes with having a tulpa or are there negative outcomes as well? If so, what are some of the negative outcomes you have experienced? How have they affected you? 
      6. How has your life changed positively and negatively after gaining your tulpa? 
      7. Have you told any of your family or friends about your tulpa? What were there reactions? How did you react to their reactions?
      8. What do you think are some of the most common misconceptions tulpamancers and the tulpa community as a whole face?

      Hello hosts!  I'm writing a paper for school on the Tulpa community, so I would appreciate if I could get some answers to these open-ended questions!  If you want to answer some but not all, that's fine!  Just answer as many as you'd like.  I'm just trying to get a general understanding about what it's like to have Tulpas.
      How long have you known about tulpamancy?
      Why did you originally decide to make a tulpa?
      How has having a tulpa affected your life?
      Tell me about your tulpa(s)!  Are they human, male/female/nonbinary, young/old, etc.?  What is their personality like?  Are they based on a character or person?
      Do people in your life know about your tulpa(s)?  If yes, what do they think?  If no, what do you think they would think?  How would you feel if they found out?  Would you be embarrassed, proud, or neutral?
      Did you make your tulpa after finding tulpa communities, or did you find tulpa communities after creating your tulpa?
      What do you think of tulpa communities?
      How much time do you spend with your tulpa?
      Would you recommend creating a tulpa to others?
      What advice do you have for someone considering creating a tulpa?
      Any other thoughts or comments?
      Thank you very much to anyone who responds!  Like I said, this is for an academic paper, the goal of which is to gain an understanding of a community I am not a part of.  That being said, I'm considering joining!
