Co-present

Here's a section where we can collect the definitions of terms people use in relation to DID/MPD, both the official ones and the different ways we use the terms.

Co-present

I'm not sure any more whether I'm the only one who uses this term or not. Certainly, a lot of people have asked me what I mean when I use it, so I figure I'll put that up there for defining!

I define "co-present" as "two or more parts simultaneously at or near the front, but not communicating with each other, and not fully aware that anyone else is present."

At times like this, one part might have a particular goal (say, to use the computer to pay a bill) and another part might have a different goal (say, to use the computer to play a game). The first part will go to the computer, and find themselves persistently *not* doing the thing they intended to do, no matter how hard they try.

Both parts are present, but they aren't aware or communicating.

We usually say "sharing front"...but it's basically the same as what you have said here. The only difference is for us, it could be with or without awareness of each other.
I live in my own little world, but it's okay, they know me here.
