Obviously the physical stats don't change unless there's some sort of mental limit in the personality. So that leaves the more mental stats and the question of what do they know? what are they like? Another personality might be more charismatic than another or perhaps the persona is supposed to have dropped out of college or never graduated high school and thus doesn't access the character's full book learning.

Truthfully it depends how much of a deviation in persona from the baseline and that persona's believed background.

In quite a few cases one or more of the alternate persona's are aware they aren't the original one. How does this affect a stat? Not at all, why would it? Does knowing one is insane make them less insane? No.

In the case of Tyler I'd say the only stat change was pretty much charisma. Maybe he had access to a different set of special skills, but those aren't stat related. They were both of the same intelligence. Sure he knew some facts that Norton didn't but that was more a factor of what he spent his time doing. So yeah little reason for different stats. Whether or not the alternate persona is aware that it's a secondary or is always 'aware' of things and has access to the primary persona's memories doesn't change much at all.
