 +DID is said to be caused when severe trauma results in a failure to integrate memories, thoughts, actions and beliefs into a core personality. The trauma associated with the memories and thoughts eventually develop into a separate identity with it's own pattern of behavior and personality. Dissociation becomes a defense mechanism to avoid traumatic events and memories, and over time can become a hindrance.  ​
