Abstract

Forty-five patients with auditory hallucinations were studied. Sixty per cent proved to be excellent hypnotic subjects with multiple personalities. These latter patients received 11 different diagnoses by clinicians, predominantly those related to schizophrenia or an affective illness. Because patients with multiple personalities frequently have hallucinations, delusions, paranoid ideas and bizarre behaviors, they may be misdiagnosed as some form of schizophrenia.
