Is it necessary to work on personality?


Recommended Posts

First of all, I am typing on my phone and second of all this is the first thread that I have written (how exciting!).

 

Well the title says it all really, but I was wondering if I really needed to heavily focus on Reina's personality (tulpa). I mean she's vocal via mindvoice and seems to have her personality already (I focused on her personality before but very lightly, I only gave her a few traits and left the rest up to her).

 

Anyways, should I focus more on her personality or is she fine the way she is?

Sorry if this sounds stupid :/

Actually this does sound stupid now that I reread it but I'm going to ask anyways.

Welcome to the forum.

 

No, you don't need to work on personality, and I would in fact advise against it. Your tulpa is already sentient and such, so there is no reason to do personality, nor would it have any effect other than potentially confusing your tulpa.

 

As a note for anyone else who finds this thread by the title, it isn't necessary to work on personality at any stage, just recommended by some.

As waffles said, it's more a choice than something required.

I decided not to do it because I wanted my tulpa to decide everything by herself, so no name, no personality pre-decided..

 

Some people might be scared their tulpa won't be like they want it (which is kinda silly imho) and thus do it, just be sure s/he can have someway of doing it if you want him/her to do it. I gave mine access to my memories, for example.

Forgive me if I sound like a broken record here, but as the two people above said, it's not at all necessary to work on personality, but depending on if you're willing for a more randomized result, don't even bother with it. Just let it develop from whatever stimuli (narration/forcing sessions/etc) the tulpa recieves.

 

However if you want a more controled personality (but lets face it, ultimately the tulpa is the one to choose how they want to execute their personality), you could always just do what I do. Teach them about a slew of personality traits and narrate to them about a few that you liked.

 

That's what I did, and Snow turned out just fine. A little rough around the edges in the free-will department, but we got those straightened out as time went on...

 

So yes. If you're alright with random, don't bother with personality. If you do, (and are willing to do a little bit of sandpapering on the consept that he/she does have free reign) then go ahead. But all in all, personality isn't a necessity.

Probably her personality would turn out in a way you like it anyway, one of the theories is that it develops along subconscious desires, so it's almost impossible for her to get a personality you wouldn't like at all unless you work towards it.

Okay thank you :)

This is reassuring to know as I didn't want to work on personality, but saw alot of guides with it.

Once again, thank you.

It's a theory that the personality develops throu subconsciousness desires. I do think they highly impact but there can be other not so good things in ones subconsciousness which could affect too.

 

the result is always like throwing a dice. (thou ones expectations will hold a strong influence on the result). If one is carrying fears of how the Tulpa may be, those fears could influence the outcome.

Not so good things? What do you mean?

Like you said, it usually reflects your subconscious desires. Why would you desire something that's not good? If you do, then that's the main problem here, and it could affect the process either way.

 

If one is carrying fears of how the Tulpa may be, those fears could influence the outcome.

Yes, but it is that way anyway. Whether you define personality or not.

"If this can be avoided, it should. If it can't, then it would be better if it could be. If it happened and you're thinking back to it, try and think back further. Try not to avoid it with your mind. If any of this is possible, it may be helpful. If not, it won't be."

I don't really see a point in it, as long as you assume they are sentient the whole time. Storm never worked on my personality much in the first place, and I was fully vocal in about 4 and a half weeks.

You don't have to, but I see it as sort of "narration with training wheels". I like it and think it's a point from which to kickstart the development of a tulpa. Of course, I'm not one for three-hours-and-you're-done tulpa, so that's something to take into consideration.

      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?

      Hi, I have a problem. It turns out that a day and a half ago I began to anguish the idea of ​​having a tulpa (my tulpa is called Kya and it has been a week since I started doing it, which makes her very young) and I was interacting. With her all week. Kya progressed a lot in a short time with vocality. She is very cheerful, always wants to play, is very curious and sees the positive side of everything, basically behaved like a little girl. But when I started to anguish myself at night, I asked him if he could leave me alone for a while until he called her, he happily accepted and said nothing. The next day, I felt he wanted to tell me something but he was holding back. I didn't want to listen to her until I felt better, but after a few hours I stopped feeling her. A day and a half passed and I called her, but she said nothing to me, I was afraid she would feel bad or worse, that she would disappear (since I read that it was possible that the tulpas would not last long) I tried to call her again and she answered.
       
      At first I doubted if it really was because I didn't feel the same, I felt depressed and sharp. At first he told me he was fine, but after a while he confessed that life was not as he had imagined. Kya believed that everything would be games and fun, but while resting in my head he began to think and realized that life was difficult.
       
      Now he barely speaks and seems sad. I do not know what to do, I told him that at some point we will play (that always makes him happy) but now he only responded very strongly and discouraged. She also told me that trees bore her (she loved trees!) And she didn't scold me when I heard sad music.
       
      Help, I don't know what to do.
