We have two opposing sets of responses to loud noises. I, the host, usually have no startle response to sudden loud noises, which I recognized as odd. How can DID override what should be an autonomic nervous system response?
Most of the littles have a variety of negative or startle responses to particular strains of loud sounds: an adult male and female arguing, anyone talking loud, any sudden sound, city sounds like construction or sirens. I'm starting to have more reactions to sounds and based on the particular sensitivity, I can often determine which alter happens to be "hanging around" the front.
