Transcript of Sybil Dorsett

Shirley Ardell Mason
Victoria Antoinette Scharleau
Vicky was an imaginary friend Sybil created as a child and the first self she dissociated into. Vicky grew up in France and speaks the language fluently. She is eighteen, very mature, and knows everything about all of the other selves.
Peggy Lou Baldwin
She is a young girl who is extremely assertive and often very angry. Sybil is unable to show anger, so this trait is housed by both of the Peggys. She has a pug nose and a dutch hair cut.
The book stating the truth.
Sally Field in the movie "Sybil"
Sybil Isabel Dorsett

Sybil is the most widely know case of multiple personality disorder. She had sixteen personalities of different genders. Although her case was fabricated, this is a look into all of her "selves."
This is a photo of Shirley Ardell Mason, the real woman behind the pseudonym.
Marcia Lynn Dorsett
Marcia always dresses in funeral attire and is very depressed. She constantly has suicidal thoughts, and has tried to kill herself before. She is the most emotional of the selves.
Vanessa Gail Dorsett
Vanessa is a young girl who houses all of Sybil's musical talents; she plays the piano wonderfully. She is also more easy going than Sybil and allows the girl to have fun. She is very dramatic and beautiful.
Peggy Ann Baldwin
She is a counter part of Peggy Lou and looks very similarly. She houses more of Sybil's fears than anger though.
Sybil Isabel Dorsett
This is the walking self and the main personality. All of the others stemmed from this one, as it is Sybil before any of the dissociations ocurred. She is a very shy and depleted person.
Mary Lucinda Saunders Dorsett
Mary is Sybil's memory of her grandmother and one of the few selves that is not a child. She is an aged woman and kind just as her grandmother was.
Mike Dorsett
Sid Dorsett
Nancy Lou Ann Baldwin
Sybil Ann Dorsett
Ruthie Dorsett
Clara Dorsett
Helen Dorsett
Marjorie Dorsett
The Blonde
Mike is a young boy who is very handy and builds things as well as plays sports. He also wishes to have a baby with a girl one day because of Sybil's father.
Sid is a little bit older than Mike and wants to be exactly like Sybil's father. He also loves football. The main difference between the boys is that Sid has fair skin whilst Mike olive.
She is terrified of the end of the world and constantly lives in fear. Nancy is the manifestation of Sybil's father's intense religious views. She is afraid of Roman Catholics and interested in politics.
She is a very little girl and very shy. Not much is learned of her as a result. She is pale and weak.
Ruthie is a baby and the youngest of the selves. She is pre-verbal, so Ruthie herself cannot communicate. Whenever Sybil hears her mother, she dissociates into Ruthie because she cannot handle it. She is the least developed self.
Helen is a teenager and houses some of Sybil's artistic abilities. She is one of the many selves who still remember how to paint. She painted for the church instead of Sybil in their childhood. She is very fearful but wants more from her life.
She is very peaceful and lively. She is quick to laugh and not afraid like many of the other selves. She is small and fair skinned.
Clara Dorsett is also a skilled artist. She is extremely religious (she is a Seventh Day Adventist like Sybil), perhaps the most so of all the selves. She is very critical of the walking self, Sybil.
She is so under developed that she lacks even a real name. She is a teenager, though, and obviously has blond hair. She speaks with an accent.
Sybil's case was revolutionary in the field despite the exposition of the veracity behind the matter. She was not abused nor did she has Dissociative Identity Disorder, but her case remains important to this day and still has influence and insight into the field of psychiatry.
