Dissociation
This often takes the form of feeling disconnected from one's actions or feelings, and may sometimes lead to spontaneously behaving in a certain way without being aware of the reason.

While in a state of dissociation, one may experience a feeling of numbness, emotionally, physically, or intellectually.


Dissociation can occur without full consciousness and may involve identity confusion.

A person may not feel that they are fully present in the world, or find that they have memory problems, and/or they may have confusion around how they see themselves or feel a need to change their character.

Forms of dissociation include depersonalization and derealization.
