** Recreational drugs, in changing the way your brain operates, also alter your perceptions and behavior. For example, alcohol diminishes inhibitions and makes you [[InVinoVeritas do things that you would never do while sober]], dopaminergic stimulants can make you obsess over the most mundane things, or in high doses cause paranoia, and MDMA can make you empathic and sociable. These effects generally only last while the drug is in your system, but when they cause long term changes and damage, the effects and the resultant alterations to your psyche, which unlike the drugs immediate effects are very unpleasant, are long lasting. It is why recovery from drug abuse can be so long and tortuous.

* The physical avatar that Harper builds for Series/{{Andromeda}} is initially just a more solid presence for the ship's AI than the holograms she normally uses, but over time, dealing with humans and aliens on a more intimate and physical level, Rommy develops a more emotional and independent personality. Even the holograms have a slightly different personality than the 2d avatars she uses on consoles; occasionally the three get together for consultations.

* In ''Oath of Gold'', the third volume of ElizabethMoon's ''Literature/TheDeedOfPaksenarrion'', the Kuakgan talks about this with Paks, who was unable to continue her life as a paladin-in-training after being captured, tormented, and rescued, and who is at the brink of suicide when he finds her leaving her worldly goods in his grove's offering-bowl. She also hasn't eaten properly for quite a while, and has a lot of half-healed wounds. The analogy he draws between the mind and the body is that of the snail and the snail-shell; if you poke holes in the snail-shell, will the snail live?

** In ''Anime/DragonballSuper'' we get the villain Goku Black who [[EvilTwin looks identical to Goku]] but makes an indication early on that he originally did not have that appearance. Then we learn that he's [[spoiler: actually a Kai named Zamasu who stole the body of an alternate version of Goku]]. The curious thing about it is that his personality seems to have been altered slightly by this and he's taken on some of Goku's personality traits, particularly his [[BloodKnight desire for battle]], and need to be challenged and grow stronger. Then after Black actually fights Goku even his ''speech pattern'' start to slowly become more and more like Goku's too. He also starts using some of Goku's fighting stances and techniques, although those are in part deliberate imitations.
