Persona Shifting A Persona Shift is somewhere between assuming a mood and the personality of their animal. Some Were Creatures have a separate persona for their "wereside", the different personae may even have memories attached to them that other persona's don't have (i.e. other persona's can't remember that event). Different personae often have different outlooks on the world, different skills, and other things like that. Learning to recognize different personae that you shift into (if you are a persona shifter) can be very beneficial in learning to extricate yourself from the mess and confusion that persona shifting can easily cause, and knowledgeable persona shifting can be beneficial, such as shifting into a persona that is calm and level-headed in a dangerous situation or shifting into a persona, at the right time, that knows how to write very well to ensure straight A's in English.

Where you physically feel parts of your theriotype's body without it being there (like an amputee that has a phantom limb but without the amputee's pain), like feeling an actual tail or ears. These phantom limbs can even overlap the normal limbs of one's body, such as feeling paws instead of hands.

Astral shifting is where the Shifter goes into the spirit world (astral plane) and shifts there. It can take a while to work yourself into the right frame of mind for this, so it's not as easy as aura shifting, which you can do anywhere and get away with. Dreaming of shifting into your animal form or of being in your animal form counts as Astral Shifting also.

Sensory shifting is the most common type of shift, in fact, many Shifters never have any other kind of shift. In a Sensory shift, the Shifter will immerse him/h

energy, resulting in an Animal-like mood. The Shifter will feel somewhat animalish, alert, very aware, with an often-pleasurable heightened sense of their physical body. This is very like the mindset that people playing a sport and really mentally absorbed in playing get into. If you've ever gotten into a different mode of awareness/concentration/feeling when deep in a game and having lots of fun, you know pretty much what this is like. Hence the phrase, "I'm in the Zone!" The only big difference is the Shifter has a definite sense of the animal in their mood. The body temperature may go up a bit.

Similar to Contherianthropy, except instead of being constantly half-shifted, the basic instincts and attitude of your Theriotype are integrated into your human personality.
