There is an article written by The Garnet Host in this subforum entitled "Multiplicity: What and How". I suggest you read it; it definitely helped me out a lot during discoveries.

Multiple, as you may know, is more than one. If there are two or more distinct people in the system, yes, that is multiplicity.

Has Annicka ever 'fronted' or took control of the body, or does she just converse with the male? Is the male 'you', or is this another voice? What kinds of differences can you see in Annicka's speech and the male's (such as answers to situations, their point of view on such things)?

I highly suggest doing research, reading articles on multiplicity (check out the links in the article TGH wrote) and finding out more about this distinction.

Also, re-named the topic to something a little more specific.

Thanks to Elinox for the banner!

Simply put - if the male and female in your mind are actually different people, you would be a multiple.

On the other hand if they are just two aspects of you, then you're not.

Re: RENAMED: What counts as a multiple?
Back after a long absence, and got one point to add...

We had a discussion about this over on TrueForm Within recently. What the others mentioned above is generally true; however, it does make a difference whether the body is "home" for each of them or not. If only one feels that the body is home, you're a singlet (one person in a body) with visitors. Deity possession, spirit visits, and the like are different from multiplicity.

And thank you for the kind words, Momo. I'm glad it helped. *g*

Yep, agreed - there's a difference between someone in your headspace as a longterm resident, and someone just passing through.

I seem to have part-time roommates in my head. They all seem to have lives on other planes or other universes, but spend time in my head when they aren't "home". It's pretty stable who comes and goes, and when.
