What are the symptoms of dissociation? As listed in the DSM-5, there are three types of dissociative disorders: dissociative amnesia, dissociative identity disorder, and depersonalization/depersonalization disorder. All of these are variations of a dissociative disorder, which has the following signs:

- Loss of memory for periods of time, events, and people,
- Hazy identity,
- Emotional stress in relationships and work which are disproportional,
- Inaccurate perception of reality,
- Detachment from self, emotions and/or surroundings,
- Other conditions such as depression, anxiety, and suicidality.
