Since I'm usually anonymous, first some basic stuff:

I began working on my tulpa on the 28th of March, tulpaforced for 70 hours altogether, out of which 18 hours were spent on personality, 30 on avatar related stuff (visuals, touch, etc) and about 22h on generic conversation. I started narrating on the 25th of April, I guess I narrate about 1 hour every day.

 

There's emotional response, and she can control her avatar decently, although I still tend to parrot unconsciously. However, she can't speak. While it's not really all that late for speech, I'd still like to know if perhaps I'm not doing something right, alternatively, if there's something that could speed up the process; it just bothers me a bit that emotional response and avatar control both happened quite early on (28h and 35h), and speech is taking longer than it took FAQ_man, who had no guides or anything at the time.

 

5 days ago I changed the way I tulpaforce, before the change I used to tulpaforce whenever I could, as long as I could - that was usually ~50 minutes, 1-2 sessions every day. Now, mostly based on Bluesleeve's and TOG's approach, I tulpaforce for 30 min each session, daily 2-6 sessions. Also most of these recent sessions were spent on that jar-filling personality method TOG had used.

My situation is a bit similar to yours, but I think half of the reason why we're not doing as good is because of narration time: it has to be far longer than 1 hour per day, you're supposed to do it throughout the entire day, instead of just talking to yourself, you are supposed to talk to the tulpa all the time.

Now I started to narrate even vidya, but it's pretty hard. And there's really nothing else to narrate.

Another thing to add is that I used to talk to her in English only, but it looks like she responds better to my native language so I switched over.

How do you know narrating in your native language gives better results?

Well, not from narration, but from tulpaforcing sessions - emotional response and headaches.

Yeah, that should be the reason. A child only learns to talk when it's engaged in conversations, too.

Of course it is difficult to find topics to talk about, but it's not that much about the content, but the attention you give your tulpa during these "dialogues".

As long as you don't talk to yourself, you should be fine.

 

Maybe a tip: You could go through your house/apartment take random objects and tell her about them. Don't forget to also talk about your "emotional connection" to these things.

As an example: An ink bottle.

- What is it used for?

- Anything important about it?

- What does the Tulpa think about it?

- What do you think about it?

- Do you have any experiences with this object?

- Do you know someone who used it?

- What did you think about him?

- Are there jokes about ink bottles (I know this is lame, but you could make one up)

etc.

 

As you can see there is plenty to talk about, even in your household.

 

May I ask what the form and name of your tulpa is?

May I ask what the form and name of your tulpa is?

I just call her Twi for now, she's a humanoid (read: furry) Twilight. Basically a completely human body with Twi's skin color and anthro head. She did not undergo any magical transformation though, that's how I planned her and there's been no serious deviation, aside from a tail popping on once in a while, but that's actually also something I planned (when I began visualizing her, I did work on a tail as well, but when I wasn't specifically working on the tail I imagined her without it, since it's a generally impractical thing).

 

As for the rest of your post, I'll try that, but I don't think that'll increase the number of narration hours very much - the problem is that whenever I'm actually doing something that I have to focus on I can't narrate, and most of the time I'm doing things that I have to focus on (or, alternatively, there are too many distractions, although that's probably the smaller issue).

What kind of games do you play?

Let's say you play Call of Duty, you may have played it with a friend once, then you generally repeat what happens in the game. May be silly, but at least you talk about something. You can talk about what you're planning to do, like the screen sees you running but you tell that you're going to run away from the guy who saw you and snipe him down after you've got some distance. I've watched a friend of mine do a big group thing on World of Warcraft once, and we still could talk. He said what he's doing, what everything does, what will happen and what would happen if he didn't do something.

 

Now, if you're focussing on something like reading, you can try explaining it to your tulpa. Say you're reading stuff about.. the etymology of matches. You can tell it to your tulpa, your own thoughts and such. Will help narration and remembering it.

Irish didn't narrate outside tulpaforcing/daydreaming sessions at all, and it took him longer too. I'm not sure of the truth of this bit of information, though, so I'd like someone informed to confirm or disconfirm it.

I've got a QUESTION!

Do people narrate with their eyes open or closed?

Now for my small contribution

I think the best advice here is to keep narrating. You've done plenty for everything else so just narrate. I can't see how people can rack up so much time. I started early april and only got 30 hours (total), I think I'm not even going to finish before summer ends! I think you spent too long on visulizing though and should've started narrating from the very beging even if there was no personality built yet (take a few things from Irish's guide for once). I wish the very best for your tulpa :)

      [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?
