She also seemed to have a very different physical presence in terms of manner, gestures and eye movements. When asked her name without any hesitation she immediately replied that she was Eve Black- this reflects upon the behaviours of people who have Multiple Personality Disorder. The therapist also claimed that this ‘new person’ had a child-like characteristic (an erotically mischievous glance, a face marvellously free from the habitual signs of care, seriousness and underlying distress. The voice and language structure was highly different, and in the therapist’s opinion it appeared to be an entirely different woman.
