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?
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.. 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
Like with all things in life giving really gives me the most happiness. I like to help people and if anyone reading this needs assistance with anything feel free to shoot me a message. I'll get back to you when I can :)
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
Giver. I've asked a handful of questions, but they're personally irrelevant. Meaning questions like where do you wanna visit, what do you like about yourself, and etc. I just like to help others when I can.
I think everyone in the beginning is the "Asker" (especially under 18) right now I'm all three! sometimes I come on here and I would just spectate because I cbb to share my opinion. Right now I'm doing a lot of giving - you could say that I'm in the zone xd
