Cameo shifts and Polyweres

Many therians who are only just learning about therianthropy may confuse Cameo Shifts for true theriotypes, resulting in therians who think they are five- or six-theriotyped polyweres when they actually may only have one or two true theriotypes.


Some therians believe that all shifts that a therian experiences are related to a theriotype. They explain cameo shifts as a shift that is either imagined, or as a shift related to an animal that is, in fact, a theriotype of the therian that just happens to not express many shifts.
