Tulpamancy, like most forms of plurality, has not received much research attention from academics or clinicians. The only types of plurality that have had much formal research are DID (Dissociative identity disorder – formerly known as MPD) and OSDD (other specified dissociative disorder, formerly known as DDNOS). It is currently unknown and hotly debated how much of that research actually applies to other forms of plurality such as tulpamancy – however, the research would likely be applicable to those who have DID/OSDD and have also made tulpas. There has been a some research into soulbonding and soulbonding-like phenomena (though not described using those terms) and a tiny bit into tulpamancy, the latter primarily from an anthropological standpoint.
