Previous theories of personality have introduced the concepts of ego states, complexes, subsystems, subpersonalities, and subselves. A series of postulates and corollaries are proposed in the present paper that form the skeleton of a formal theory of personality based on the concept of subselves. Structural, developmental, psychopathological, and psychotherapeutic implications are discussed.
