Sybil and the Debate Over Multiple Personality Disorder

(YouTube link)

If you read The Three Faces of Eve or Sybil, you are familiar with Multiple Personality Disorder (MPD). Both books were based on real patients. The syndrome became a handy plot point for many crimes shows. However, in the years since, there has been doubt cast that the disorder even exists as those cases presented. The New York Times produced this video, along with an article exploring what we know and what we don’t know about the most famous MPD patient, Shirley Mason, who became known to the world as Sybil. -via mental_floss
