It's funny how many people think plurality is a mental illness when even mainstream psychology focuses more on making a system work together than integration (which btw rarely works). As long as it doesn't interfere with functioning, it's fine.
@Elizafox anything that enhances functionality categorically cannot be a disorder
@cadey I don't think plurality enhances my functionality any more than having extra roommates but it doesn't make it worse 🤷
@pea @Elizafox except this is literally what happens for me. There's been times I stopped paying attention to one of the girls for about an hour and when I poked her again she wanted to test an entire complicated code fragment/database schema. I can blink and miss changes to our shared mindscape. I might just be one of the weird ones tbh.
@Elizafox it works for some but certianly not for all.
not being plural myself, id never advocate that as a first option...
@plausocks I acknowledge sometimes integrating an unstable personality is probably necessary and helpful, but blindly assuming it's always the answer is actively harmful.
@Elizafox honestly anyone who doesnt know this should really take a step back and read up on this...
its pretty clear that simply integrating persons in your system is not the solution for everything.
@Elizafox it's shit like that that makes me not mention my plurality around places like work at all. I have enough reasons for people to think I'm weird.
