Depersonalization is not the same as Objectification but they are two terms that while they are not the same, are very similar as well as being common to consensual enslavement. Objectification can also part of many illegal activities and abuse. Depersonalization can be used both consciously and unconsciously to control another person.
What is it and how can it be properly used? Depersonalization is a way of looking at and interacting with the world from the inside out. Many people start out mostly or all inwardly directed. Their world is what is around them at the center of everything. Very few start out thinking of themselves in terms of others. The more someone is outwardly directed and the more their focus is on another person or group, rather than themselves, the more depersonalized they are and the better the slave they will become. This is not unusual among people who identify themselves with an organization such as a church, political party or some group and especially those at the submissive end of the dominant/submissive spectrum. For the submissive, it is about what the group or others want and how they go about pleasing them. This outwardly directed nature is something that is looked for when someone is looking for a slave or someone who can be enslaved. It is also easily abused by many people and groups when it is organic to the person and how they view themselves.
Depersonalization is one of the Tools that can be, and should be, an integral part of consensual enslavement. The question is why do you want someone to view themselves primarily as part of someone or something else? It is because enslavement is about changing how the slave views themselves and how they interact with others. It is the change as much as what the change is to which is important to its use as a tool. To be a slave is to go from being your own self to someone owned by another, someone else's object property. In our case, it is the self-identity of being owned.
The slave's focus should primarily always be on her owner and being a part of an extension of him and his will. While no one's focus can always be on someone else, the goal is to have their focus to be on another instead of themselves as much as possible. My essay, A Slave’s Compass discusses this in greater detail.
The way to get to this state is classic training. You reward the behavior and viewpoint you wish and either ignore or punish behavior and viewpoint you don't want. There are other techniques as well which work as well or better depending on the slave you are training. The best of those are things which remind the slave of her status, place and focus, especially those where she is reminding herself.
Operant Conditioning is, to me, always better because most people cannot do Hypnosis and it also does not produce the effects most people think it can. I won't say it won't or can't help, or even succeed, but unless you are one of a very few people who really know it, you are much better off using the various forms of conditioning. You can also use multiple forms of conditioning at the same time to improve your results. Hypnosis mostly either works or it doesn't. To me, even partially working, if you continue working at it, is a good thing and that also carries over to other tools and builds on them as well.
The main goal is to change the self-identification of someone to being that of a slave, you must do something to either remove or change or both whatever their current self-identification is. There are many ways to do it and all involve removing, to some extent, the person they are so they can become the person/slave they want to be. You can call that a form of Depersonalization.
Please note that this write-up is almost identical to Objectification.
