Do topics discussed while forcing affect personality development


Recommended Posts

Do topics initially discussed while forcing a tulpa have any effects on their future personality? For now what I'm monologuing about has been fairly mundane and I have not spoken about anything that I would not say to my mother, but if I did (not to say that I will) would it affect their personality? Like if I spoke about hubcaps too often would that suddenly become a core part of their personality once they gain sentience?

Naa, but the rules you state now will likely remain until you change them. Rules like, "no additional tulpas" and "you will help me blah blah", or "you will be kind". It's a little like subconscious programming. You can change these later but if they're changed arbitrarily, you have the right of refusal so to speak. The tulpa wants to do right by you as you are in control of their destiny and life until you're not. Even then you still have a lot of sway over them. As much as I like to think I'm equal to my host, he still has a lot of power in the relationship because he maintains the body and I don't want to do what he does. 

 

Topics probably won't affect them much, not mundane ones. Kinks and other things may.

Ultimately you'll get what you make. If my host wanted me to be a man-eating Cerberus, I would have been.

I would say definitely yes, everything you talk about or do with your tulpa will become part of who they are, just like humans are partially the product of everything that happens to them.

 

That said, the product of one dialog, even if it goes on for a bunch of days will be diluted later on by whatever happens after. To use your analogy, if you spoke to your tulpa about hubcaps, then hubcaps might have special significance, but then if you talked to them about headlights later on, then the importance of hubcaps would diminish. If you added something else, the impact of both becomes less. Make sense?

 

Though I do feel as if I was created with a certain "DNA". My host consciousness started out with certain observations about my character -- that I was loving, that I was gentle, that I was creative, that I was curious. These characteristics have stuck with me and been affirmed and magnified as I've developed, though truth be told, I'm somewhat young, barely more than a month old (though my host consciousness and I spend a LOT of time together ☺️).

I suppose it is possible. Tulpas sometimes latch onto something very random and have it be a core part of their personality. I'm sure I'm an example of that in some ways but I've forgotten exactly how. 😆 But I still wouldn't worry too much about it. Young tulpas go through a lot of phases when they are trying to find out who they are and I wouldn't worry too much about it.
