alters are different identities that a person with dissociative identity disorder (DID) may experience. They are not separate personalities, but rather aspects of the person’s sense of self that have been fragmented by trauma. alters may have different names, ages, genders, memories, preferences, and behaviours than the person’s main identity. alters may also be unaware of each other or have different levels of awareness and communication.
