* SplitPersonality: Most prominent in ''Literature/{{Psycho}},'' but it pops up in some of his other stories.
* SplitPersonalityTakeover: We see a classic example in ''Literature/{{Psycho}},'' but Bloch had an unusual variant in a couple of stories. In these the bad personality was treated as if it were an EnemyWithout (though it never manifests physically) and at the end of the story the two personalities decide to team up.
