Which are you? Lurkers, Givers, or Askers?

I see a lot of different users on here. Some pop up here and there just to make comments. (Lurkers) Others want advice, while some people give advice, and then you have the regular users that give and take. This is actually my first question and I have been thinking about asking for advice, but it takes too much explaining to do. I'm a giver. So which are you?

  • Lurker/Giver

    I used to be an Asker in the beginning.
    Then I evolved into a Giver.
    Now I'm more of a Lurker than anything else.

  • I mostly answer questions. I ask questions too but rarely to get advice, usually just when I'm bored so I'll ask something random to get opinions.

    • I would like to see you ask more I'm sure you could have good questions to encourage intellgent discussion.

    • @doctorwhofan23 Lol well thanks but I usually have a difficult time thinking of good questions. Most of my questions are just random things I thought of. haha

    • I understand good questions are hard to think of

  • I'm a regular but I definitely offer opinions more than I ask questions. I don't know if that qualifies as a giver though since many of my comments are sarcastic.

    I've never been a lurker... O. o Don't get the benefits or contributions of it. There are no contributions and the benefits are purely selfish...

  • I've only asked like, 3 questions. I rarely have any problems or need advice cause I'm usually at home, avoiding people. 😝 But I seem to find myself as a lurker on here. I'll sometimes give my advice (even if it's exactly what everyone else's advice is!). But most of the time, I end up on questions like these. Because a lot of times when I do give my advice, I give my blunt honest opinion which can rack in an unhealthy amount of sadness and downvotes. 😖

  • I'm a giver and an asker. I like to give as much of my (crappy) advice as possible. Blind leading the blind lol
    And ask my fair share of questions.

    I taint both the questions and the answers :)

  • I'm a giver.. At first, I came here on gag because I have a question to ask about something but then after my question was answered, I don't have any more on my mind (just once in a bluemoon)..
    I find it interesting to give more opinion than to ask or else my account will be stagnant.. lol

  • I have 60 questions as opposed to 8,117 opinion, so in that sense I would qualify as a Giver. I get a lot from reading other people's opinion though, so it's anything but one-sided.

    • That's a good point... But at the sametime this isn't giving advice this is a poll.

    • Sorry i didn't mean to send you that.

    • well it is a poll, but i wasn't giving any advice. I was answer the poll questions and then joking that yes I am a giver and give advice, but it may not get good advice. it was a play on the saying "You get what you pay for." So people taking my advice are getting "Free advice" which may or may not be of any value!

  • Bit between a lurker and a giver.
    Ill just read most of the questions without giving an opinion but once i think i got something usefull to say i will.

  • Giver,

    I spend a large amount of time just reading questions to get an idea of seeing how people respond to things with their point of view.

    For example, how women see things that men do from their point of view so I know how to do things so they don't get confused or thinking the wrong thing.

    • That's a good point... But at the sametime they're not really giving by responding to this considering it's only a poll and isn't really advice.

    • It still confused my tiny mind!

  • It depends on who is on and my mood but probably more of a lurker and to a less extent the last few months, especially, a giver.

  • relating this to Daniel Quinn's Ishmael theory of Leavers and Taker I would have to say a majority of people aren't necessarily an asker, giver, or lurker. I think that people get something out or take something away from a question similar to an asker and a lurker can still give to a discussion by side comments vote up and down etc.

    With that being said I think there are few people that are very comfortable asking others for advice and there are more that feel silly asking or dont give much detail and would rather just search for a similar question. As far as lurkers go I think almost anyone who doesn't dive into GAG and open up should be classified as a Third Degree Lurker (LDK) Jk but not jk because I am technical

    props if you read this far
