Correct, mine is not DID either. And I do think it looks different for each person. What I describe is how it was/is experienced by me and for me. I think it might present to me this way because these ages are when I had my biggest issues growing up and I believe where I have developmental gaps. And maybe it looks this way to me because it is the way that I was able to accept and work with the concept.

Here is one book that describes a different way of looking at it:

From what I gather one of the advantages of seeing this type of internal landscape and dialog as separate parts from the self is that it might help one separate out threads of thoughts and to look at them from a sort of outside perspective. This might enable one to link things together, find patterns, see when or what causes them to appear or get louder, which ones are helpful, which ones are not so helpful... and so on.
