Define ANP and EP

So let’s try to define ANP and EPDD-BPD-DID

Each person has only one personality
likewise if they suffer a OSDD or a DID !

Notice:
The ANP part doesn’t experience the EP part (holding trauma) as a  part of the own personality (of themselves)
Al ANP’s experience themselves as ‘the real me, the normal me’  and live daily life (identity disorder: which life e.g. ANP part is really ‘me’)

ANP:
An ANP is a Host, an identifiable part of the personality, an act system, an Apparently Normal Personality
ANP’s don’t do to personification. They focus purely on tasks of everyday life and leave aside the EP’s of their consciousness mind.
The influence of EP’s that they do experience, they experience not as a part of their own lives (they think it’s not a part of me)

EP:
An EP is an Emotional Part (traumatized) of the Personality.
EP’s don’t do to presentification (don’t live in the present time).
They only think from out the past and don’t take notice of the fact that it’s already 2014.

type 1,2 and 3 PTSD

levels of Structural Dissociation (SD)


In case of a OSDD

SD level II, there is one ANP and a lot more EP’s. Those EP’s don’t completely take over the consciousness mind of the ANP. So the ANP stays more a less in contact with the EP’s.

In case of a DID
SD level III there are more than one ANP, and the EP’s can take over the consciousness mind of that or that particular ANP on that moment (that cause losing time in the daily functioning of the ANP’s). Amnesia is therefore also a typical symptom that goes with a tertiary dissociation of the personality.

ANP¹ Apparently Normal Personality (lives in the present time)
EP² Emotional Personality part (trauma related to the past)
