intrasubjectivity

Saw Being John Malkovich (finally!). Wild. If such were truly possible – my consciousness transported into someone else’s body – I don’t think my subjectivity would be unaffected because everyone would relate to and interact with the new body differently. I would have entered a new intersubjective field and this would affect my own perception of self…
The film centers on (the character) Craig’s obsessions – puppeteering and Maxine – not his whole intrasubjective experience. It makes me wonder if externally perceived and/or internally experienced individual “uniqueness” can be so reduced – a sort of “law” of subjectivity?
