Default Minor race, three personalities in one body

This is an old idea I have come back to kicking about.
It is a minor Human race for the OTU, but it could easily be used in some other setting, or reworks into a nonhuman alien.

Each adult male has three modes or personalities:

Gladiator(combative and lustful)

Artist (creative and egocentric)

Lawgiver (prudent and legalistic)

Each adult female also has three modes or personalities:

Nurse (compassionate, workaholic)

Muse (subtly shifts behavior to match partner, craves attention)

Oracle (perceptive, cryptic )

In order to shift personalities, the man or woman must perform a religious ritual.
The six archetypes correlate to a small family of deities that inhabit a male and female pair, the mythic progenitors of the race. Genetic evidence suggests they all do share a common ancestor pair.

Triads use separate names for each of their three modalities.

By the some psychological standards these people are all mentally ill, yet their multiple personalities function just fine within the framework of their culture.
