How Does Your Tulpa's Personality Differ From Yours?


Recommended Posts

First off, allow me to apologize. I'm sorry that my first post is a question in a new thread, but I guess that's just how that goes.

 

Okay, so I only heard about tulpae ~3 weeks ago, and it took me a week to overcome the fear of a forced hallucination and mental schism. However, I've been passively working on personality for ~2 weeks (on paper, not forcing) and I've gone through several revisions of what I want in a life-long friend, starting from a character-based tulpa, and moving to one not resembling the character in the sleightest. But over the revisions, my tulpa's planned personality seems to be veering closer and closer to my own. My concern is, if the personality if too different, my tulpa could become very grating on me, but if the personality is too similar, my tulpa could become very boring, so I was wondering:

 

tl;dr

How different is your tulpa's personality from your own? Do you have any specific examples, and could you give your feelings on how that difference is a good or a bad thing? I'm just trying to get a general feel for how differences manifest in the relationship between a tulpa and its creator. I mean, this thing's for life, and I plan on living for quite a while still, but perhaps I'm just a little over cautious.

 

I greatly appreciate any responses in advance.

You shouldn't worry about the personality being too similar, since that means you'll be able to get along with them well.

 

As for my tulpae, two of them did not undergo personality forcing and are INTJ like me, while the third one did and is an ESFP.

Well, we are rather different. I suppose I should say that now that I am in control, it will be from the tulpa point of view. It isn't quite what you are asking for, but I hope it will help.

 

I am more emotional of us two. Believe it or not, Sands would be the logical and calm one. I might seem calm and I wish to be polite, but if something gets too much for me, I won't be able to act in a way that makes sense. Sands can, many times he has had to be the one reassuring me despite something bad having happened to him. I feel like it should be my role and not the other way around, but it is how it ended up being. For now, at least.

 

I am physical. Sands wishes to have his personal space and lots of it, while I like being close to people. I like touching and being touched, and I wish to show my feelings to Sands that way. He doesn't appreciate them and has gotten annoyed, but we understand each other. We can compromise so both of us are happy. It isn't quite what he wishes for and perhaps he would be happier if I was more like him when it comes to that. But then I wouldn't be myself but someone else.

 

Sometimes I wish he wouldn't be so cold to others. There are some people he hates and he doesn't stop hating them. I would hope to see him forgive them, but he says I wouldn't understand how they have treated him from his point of view, not having experienced it for myself. They should have known better, he says. But I still think things could and should be fixed. Sands just says I am young and naïve.

 

Our differencies can be a hindrance. They can get in the way and we don't exactly see eye to eye most of the time. However, we compliment each other and any problem we have between us we can easily solve. We can talk and we can understand each other. We understand more than just words and there is no way to be misunderstood. We are different, we can get annoyed by each other, but we are friends and we care about each other. We want the other to be happy and we do sacrifices, but sometimes we all have to be a little selfish.

 

As for our personality archetypes, if you for some reason are interested in them, I got ENFJ last time I did the test and Sands got ISTP.

Interesting, we're both INTJs with an ESFP tulpa, even though the two types are completely opposite.

 

My other tulpae are ISTJ and ENFJ. We all have different types. I never did strict personality work on anyone, but I did use a puppeting method while keeping a rough idea of their personalities in mind.

 

We all get along just fine. Kayleigh and I do occasionally clash due to our opposite personalities (and stubbornness), but it's never anything major.

So I guess the general feeling is, "We're not the same, but we work things out?" That's good. The personality work that I've been doing seems to fall along some of the lines you guys mentioned, so I suppose that things should work out. It's all about the mental state anyway, right? Thank you for your replies.

 

Well, we are rather different. I suppose I should say that now that I am in control, it will be from the tulpa point of view. It isn't quite what you are asking for, but I hope it will help.

Not a problem. I appreciate the input.

TBH no matter how different/similar you and your tulpa are i think you´ll be alright due to a mild form of stockholm syndrome that comes with such a relationship.

 

^ This. It's almost inevitable for tulpae to have good relationships with their hosts.

 

Also, if Kayleigh saw this, she'd probably be all "I told you so!" Though Stockholm Syndrome technically occurs in cases of kidnapping and/or abuse and involves the victim justifying the abuse, not just showing loyalty to (and often bonding to) the abuser. I'd say it's some sort of mild host-complex rather than Stockholm Syndrome.

As I've stated before, I like to think of Helix and Pixel as slices of my own personality, amplified.

Were opposites essentially, my tulpa is high strong, fun loving, silly, hyper and full of herself. Im the opposite of all of those.

My tulpa's first personality was different then mine. Then I changed her to be like me.

 

The differences between us were very subtle. I'm more dominate then she is and that was on purpose, but the difference was not made big.

 

For a while I found her personality being like mine, to be boring and I thought many times what I did to her was a mistake or of making a new tulpa. She got really emo and harder to deal with. She and my subconsious tried to change her form to something more interesting, but I wouldn't let it happen and fought it every time (And I still fight it today). Then she got clever and started trying to play me, trick me, give me headaches, and fight back.

 

I respect that and its made me like her more everyday.

      [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?
