TurboSimmie January 23, 2022 Share January 23, 2022 Hello! 😁 I've noticed that a lot of tulpas are based on characters, both those created by their host and those from other media. I thought it would be a neat idea to create a short little survey specifically for these kinds of tulpas so that we may explore and understand this important dynamic better. The way I've worded the survey is geared towards tulpas answering, but hosts can respond on behalf of their tulpa(s) if they want. If your system contains multiple tulpas based on characters they can answer in separate posts or all together, either way is fine. 1. What is your name, and what is the name of the character you were based on? (If it's different) 2. Were you based on a character your host created? If so, why did your host create that character? If not, what media did the character come from? 3. Did your host explicitly set out to create a tulpa based on this character, or was it unintentional? 4. When you first became sentient did you believe that you were the same person as that character? If so, how long did it take you to see yourself as a separate person, and what was that process like? 5. Does the character you are based on have a tragic/difficult backstory? If so, did you carry any emotional baggage from the character's past? Do you still now? 6. Related, does that character's past still "feel" like your past even if you know it isn't? 7. Did it feel like it took a while to "step out of the character's shadow"? Have you ever felt pressure to act, look, or think like the character? 8. How far have you deviated from the personality of the character you were based on? Are there any aspects of the character that you still hold onto? 9. What's your honest opinion about the character you were based on? 10. Are you glad that your host based you on that character? Do you wish they hadn't? Or are you more "it is what it is" about the whole thing? 11. What's your opinion on tulpas based on characters in general? Do you think hosts should create tulpas based on characters, or is it better to create tulpas from scratch? 12. Any words of advice to tulpamancers thinking about creating a tulpa based on a character, or to other tulpas based on characters?
