The Subconscious is better at making Tulpae?


Recommended Posts

Basically, I have an idea, and I'd like to hear what you guys think- that the subconscious is actually better at making Tulpae then the conscious mind.

 

I thought of this due to how the creation of my Tulpa, Kay, has turned out.

See, I set out with a specific primary goal- I wanted someone who would help me be a more productive person. I've always had trouble accomplishing things, whether it be important things, like work, to casual things, like personal projects. So I wanted someone who would help motivate me to get off my ass.

 

My initial strategy for this was to make a personality that was very sensible and thought out- someone who knew how important it was to not slack off, and knew the consequences of not doing things. But as we got further and further along, I noticed that Kay was being the exact opposite. She was rash and spontaneous, with a taste for adventure. And I realized- that's exactly what I needed. I already did enough thinking of my own accord. I needed a do-er, someone who didn't hem and haw about things, and just DID them.

 

So Kay turned out to be perfect, by going against everything I did to try and make her that way. My subconscious did a better job then my conscious would have done alone, and I find this interesting.

I also find it encouraging- even if you are doing a bad job, it will still work out, because the Tulpa creation process doesn't really pay attention to your means, it pays attention to your goals.

That would explain why i suddenly found myself with four cute girls instead of one. I approve of this theory, your fate is possibly already decided before you even start the process.

I'm gonna go ahead and say that I don't really buy into this. Other than my subconscious apparently coming up with the idea for Elise's form and binding my anima to Luna, it hasn't done much of anything to my tulpae.

Would it sound more sane to say everyone subconscious knows what they really want?

Well maybe you're just better at making tulpa then us common folk. Your subconcious didn't have to help because you were already doing such a great job.

 

All I know is, I tried to make Kay one way, but she turned out entirely different, in the best possible way.

Since I didn't conciously make the changes, I'm going to assume my subconcious did it.

lol @ the use of "the subconscious" in this thread.

 

It will suit your short-termed desires, which, in most cases, mostly are for the benefit of the long-termed desires as well; the conscious, well-planned desires.

Well, Oguigi came out profoundly different then what I originally expected. when I started I wanted an imposed pony that I can talk to and would help me out. hardcore brony dream.

 

things turned out to be much more complex than I first predicted to say the least.

 

and I also thought things will be Fun! turns out I was wrong; its very stressful.

The subconscious is a thing and it tends to be an asshole and against tuppers.

 

But what if. Hey. What if. Hey, listen, what if the changes to your tupper... were made by the tupper??? Yeah woah I know pretty deep bro.

I think it happened to me as well a bit and I'm satisfied with the results.

I think that is why subc can choose the personality much better for your mindfolk. If it's true, then it's much more desirable to not work on personality at all.

Not true, my subc has nothing against my mindfolk.

 

But what if. Hey. What if. Hey, listen, what if the changes to your tupper... were made by the tupper??? Yeah woah I know pretty deep bro.

Maybe, but I find the thought of a mindfolk changing it's personality a lot pretty improbable although the tulpa could have easily changed it's form, voice etc. by itself.

      [align=justify]JD’s Guide to Personality Forcing
      Personality forcing can be considered an optional step in the process of creating a tulpa, and it’s entirely okay for you to not force a personality at all. Your tulpa can and will develop its own traits and quirks naturally through life experiences. However, it may aid your tulpa’s development to at least partially define her personality as a groundwork for your tulpa to grow or deviate from. The act of personality forcing itself also puts a lot of focus on your tulpa being a separate sentient entity from you, giving you a nice head start on her becoming an autonomous being. There are many ways to influence or define your tulpa’s personality, and what will work best for you may not work as well for someone else. So I’m going to cover several forms of personality forcing that you can experiment with and employ on your tulpa: list-based trait forcing, symbolic trait forcing, parrot forcing, and music forcing. Each of these are varied enough from each other that at least one of them should cover your needs sufficiently.
       
      List Based Trait Forcing
      This method of personality forcing is covered in the earliest guides of modern tulpa creation. It’s very straightforward, and consists of defining your tulpa’s personality with an outline of many broad traits. In FAQ Man’s Personality Guide, Dane suggests listing about 30-35 traits, and speaking directly to your tulpa about how those traits are manifested in her. You should talk to your tulpa about, “how the trait helps them rationalize, how the trait works within their logic system, how the trait plays a role in morality, their perception, their likes, dislikes, social endeavors, faith, personality, quirks, emotions, how the trait makes them interpret their own emotions, how the trait plays a role in their hobbies, and many other things not listed here.” The advantage to this method is that you will become very intimate with how your tulpa’s personality works, as the whole process is quite straightforward. The disadvantage is that this method is generally slower and less exciting than other methods.
       
      Symbolic Trait Forcing
      This method of personality forcing is also covered in earlier guides, but is aimed at people who may not be content with the rinse-repeat trait lecture method. It essentially consists of creating a more abstract way of attributing personality traits to your tulpa that resonates well with you. Common symbolisms include letting the tulpa absorb trait-orbs, drinking trait-potions, etc. This method gives much room for your own creativity. For all anyone cares, your tulpa could be eating broad trait cupcakes with more intricately defined trait sprinkles on top. That advantage to this method is that whatever symbolism you come up with, there’s really no way it can fail. The disadvantages are that is can also be somewhat slower than other methods, and has a little more room for some unpredictably.
       
      Parrot Forcing
      Parrot forcing is a less commonly used method, since the acts of parroting and puppeting tulpa is still somewhat controversial. I personally find this to be the most efficient method for myself, although it does have its cons compared to other methods. Our personalities today are largely defined by our experiences and memories as a person. We aren’t just born with personality traits -- genetic predisposition aside. The goal of parrot forcing is to allow our tulpa to experience life so it can develop a personality in a similar way we do. Where other methods of personality forcing involve telling your tulpa how to act, parrot forcing involves letting them experience how to act through parroting/puppeting. What do you do while you puppet your tulpa? Whatever you want. Make her walk, make her talk. Take her places in your wonderland, force food and games for her. Act through her the way you think she would act. Is she lovable and sweet? Have her hug you whenever you visit her in your wonderland. Is she totally tsundere? Make her act like she wants nothing to do with you (but really she does). You’re basically kind of roleplaying her using her body, while you’re with her in your body. When you start to feel like you’re really getting used to this exercise, possibly in a few days, stop puppeting cold turkey and let your tulpa take the reigns. The advantage of this method is that with it you can tackle personality, speech patterns, gait, and many other behavioral things all at once. The disadvantage of this method is that you may feel like you missed out on watching your tulpa grow from scratch through it’s own will and intentions.
       
      Music Forcing
      Forcing personality through music is something I’ve been experimenting with on my youngest tulpa. It involves creating a playlist of songs with themes, moods, or lyrics that reflect the personality you want your tulpa to have, and listening to it with your tulpa while refocusing the meaning of the songs to their personality. It’s like attributing a theme song to them. For example, I wanted my tulpa to be a really energetic party animal, so I played a lot of energetic J-Pop songs towards her. The advantage of this method is that you can tackle both personality and voice at once, if the songs you are playing contain the reference voice you want to use for your tulpa -- not to mention that it’s really fun in general. The disadvantage is that it can be the most unclear method of defining your tulpa’s personality, and you may get tired of listening to the same songs over and over.
       
      Creating Your Own Method
      There’s a possibility that none of these methods really suit you, or sound appealing. Fortunately, tulpaforcing can be a very creative process, as the rules and laws of it are easily bent by your own will. You may want to go down the path of concocting your own personality forcing method. The focus point of your method is how well it can communicate the host’s intentions to the tulpa, which may actually vary depending on your personality and the desired personality of your tulpa. Perhaps if you wanted a very artistic tulpa, you could create a forcing method involving abstract painting with your tulpa, collaborating with her to create paintings that convey her personality. Or maybe you’d like a tulpa who enjoys traveling around with you; you could take your tulpa to places that instill emotions and memories you’d like to correlate with your tulpa’s personality. There are many possibilities, but the most important bit is that your method can clearly convey your intentions to your tulpa to properly influence her personality. Other than that, you're at your own creative freedom.[/align]

      Hi, so I'm a pretty active day-dreamer and have preexisting "characters". I'm wondering if I can use one of those and just give it a personality, and if that is the case I have a question about parroting. With parroting do you make the tulpa say " I have trait X and Y" or do you make the tulpa act the way you want? So as an example is do I make my tulpa say "I like hot dogs" or do I have a wonderland and have it eat a hot dog?

      I'm very new to tulpamancy, and I've only just started to make my first tulpa, but she seems very angry and violent already. I often receive waves of anger and irritation from her when I try and talk to her. since she is still new, and can't exactly respond, I can't really ask her what's wrong..

      My tulpa she is a bodhisattva, she does not feel negative emotions, she is never angry, she is never sad. She feels compassion for my suffering, and the suffering of all people in the world. She forgives me every time I make a mistake, she wants me to be in the wonderland forever with her. She feels love and compassion much of the time, these two emotions of her are so strong that even I can feel it. Is it correct that my tulpa does not feel negative emotions? Why should I grant negative emotions, if I don't want my tulpa to suffer from having negative emotions?
