From the Paper:

"Dissociative Identity Disorder, or DID, is a mental condition in which a single person believes that he or she contains two or more alters that co-exist independently from one another. Until 1994, DID was called Multiple Personality Disorder. The name was changed to reflect a better understanding of the disease, which is characterized by a fragmentation of identity rather than a multiplication of separate identities."
