Multiple Personalities & Driving Motor Vehicles

I believe that people who think they have multiple personalities have no business operating heavy machinery or driving a car or truck. See my post: “Multiples Should Have Driver’s Licenses Revoked”.

Below are quotes about driving published by individuals who believe they possess other personalities, their friends, relatives, spouses and others.

In her late 20s came a period of relative stability. With the immensely capable Hayley personality predominant during work hours, Kim was able to hold down a job as a van driver for five years. But one day something must have caused a switch and a disturbed personality called Julie suddenly found herself driving the van. She ploughed straight into a line of parked cars. This led to another mental health section, and a diagnosis of schizophrenia.

What if a child alter comes out while driving the car and does not know how to drive?

This was one of our first concerns — after all, the first alter we had any regular contact with was only three years old. We soon understood that each alter has a “job”, an assigned task to perform. Some jobs are somewhat general, others are very specific. Some alters’ jobs will overlap with those of others. They all work together to ensure that the person can function in whatever situation may arise. If the situation requires the ability to drive a car, then only those alters who have that skill are permitted to be active during that time.

Help! My Friend Has Multiple Personalities by James Card

~~~~~~~~~~

i hit the bumper of a car tonite. i was drifting to a stop going less than 5mph. of course he hopped out and said the last time someone hit him it cost $3k cause his suspension is right under the bumper. !?!?!?! then his wife hops out and she’s just a jerk who keeps  reiterating … my license plate holder left a 16th inch deep screw dent in the bumper.

… and i wanted to say “got it. you’re looking to screw me. message received.” then she wanted to call the
police…. her husband was more sane and kept telling her to get in the car. no police. no
checking. just contact me tomorrow. ..

… i already pay higher insurance cause of sliding on ice last winter. don’t want to call insurance company but
if they try to screw with me i will just take the hit. …

didn’t go to thpy today cause i am beyond trying anymore. waste waste waste. hate self. never going to change. give up trying cause it is just a reminder that i can’t get past this wall. maybe i want the
wall. maybe i want to fail. i don’t know. i don’t care anymore. …

  1. If you dont believe mpd exists then I don’t understand why you think people with the condition should have their licence revoked? Surely, if it doesnt exist then there are no risks of switching, in your view. I could see your point if you even believed in DID and felt that the switching could cause driving errors but as you so adamantly don’t believe in DID, why are you arguing that these people should have their licences revoked? It seems to me that you have a bit of a vendetta against people with this condition.
    Although I don’t agree with your beliefs about DID, I had respect for your blog initially as I felt you had tried to be unbiased, but having read your post about my blog (where you have made out of context statements about things written on my blog and assumptions which are completely inaccurate) and comments like this one above, I have lost respect for your views and will now take any of your posts with a pinch of salt.
    I would like it if you could leave me alone, don’t use my blog as part of your Vendetta, and I will leave you to get on with your own business. Having spent so long in the mental health system yourself I expected that you might have more compassion for the people that you see as being manipulated into believing they have DID.

    • Candycan. I do not think multiple personalities exist – but there are hundreds of thousands across the world who do. You are attempting to make a logical argument when you criticize and critique my statement about individuals who think they have many separate people inside their physical body who find they have a right and appropriate to operate 5 ton motor vehicles at very high speeds. It is an impossible argument to have when the basic premise is illogical and lacks reason.

      I think there is a high likelihood of individuals to switch personalities while driving based on what is reported over and over on the Internet. I honestly think the ensuing behavior, abreactions, mental distress, or PTSD is real to the person experiencing it. That puts all others on the highways at risk whether or not any of them think multiple personalities are real.

      Your last post seemed to be directed to “V” so I purposely did not reply out of respect because you addressed V specifically. In the meantime, I’ve been trying to think of a way to honor your feelings, and to let you know that, because you expressed that you were in distress. I did not want to add additional pain or stress to what you were already feeling. Until such time as V would have read and responded to your post, I planned to be silent.

      I accept that you will now discount my opinions. You have been doing so for awhile, just not being blatant about saying so.

      I have no vendetta against you or anyone else who chooses to believe in multiple personalities or dissociative identity disorder. This blog was never intended to be unbiased as the title shows: Multiple Personalities Don’t Exist is hardly an unbiased title to choose. This blog was created to educate the public about this diagnosis and the ensuing lifestyle; to show how the psychology industry manipulates patients; how the basic premise is illogical, fraught with manipulation, mind control and thought reform; and to show how accepting this diagnosis is usually a life-long way of existing.

      Would you please let me know where I have referred to you and your blog so I can respect your wishes & change my post. Thank you.
