Is Your GaG Personality an Accurate Representation of How You Are "in Person"?

From who you are to how you are... are you the same on GaG as you are in real life? For example, are you more outspoken online, or more popular? Would IRL people recognize your posts on here? Or would they be surprised?

  • I would say I am an exaggeration of myself in real life - I definitely do try and put the best version of myself - Like any thoughtful, witty response would be what I wished I had said in that spur of the moment in real life - I am more outspoken, probably a little less popular in the sense even though I am outspoken, I try to avoid attention, bit of a puzzler that - Real life people would recognise my posts and my intent but probably would be surprised at how clear I am, in real life I am one of those people, my brain is working faster than my mouth, writing is my perfect medium, I am crap at talking.

  • Honestly, all my online friends would know this is me. I try to be the same online as I am in person, but I feel more motherly and more caring towards others online knowing how harsh the real world can be. I try to cover up my flaws and faults in reality because people can use them against you. So I guess I let my guard down more.

  • Yes and no. People who know me well would not be surprised, others who don't probably would be. I am me and how I am online is definitely part of who I am offline but oddly enough I tend to be more serious and more cerebral online then in real life mostly because most people I know simply don't care about issues that I do either because they are indifferent to it or see no point in caring because they have no means of changing it. My humor doesn't translate well into writing so I tend to not joke around online because it can lead to some awkward misunderstandings. I would say it is for me (and I imagine most people) a facet of who I am rather then it being a mask or persona.

  • 1. "From who you are to how you are... are you the same on GaG as you are in real life? "

    Yes, I am pretty much the same person. 99% the same person.

    2. " For example, are you more outspoken online, or more popular?"

    No, I am an introvert even here as well as in real life. However yes here I do tend to express my opinions much more freely and without fear.

    3. "Would IRL people recognize your posts on here? Or would they be surprised?"

    No, they wouldn't recognize me here.

  • I very much doubt it. As I doubt they'd actually care what I feel or think for most part. I actually think I always try to put on a happy face and appear more optimistic and upbeat in real life but what I have here reflects how I really feel and think for most part about pretty much everything.

    They would never recognize me unless they actually see me personally log into my account here and start posting opinions.

  • Real, of course! Why not?
    Some of my work friends would know me, just reading some posts, and most of the past GFs would know, and many would probably smile, and like how I speak well, of them, and our time, ignoring the 'other' times, that I won't talk about!!

  • Highly depends on the situation. On here, I'm mostly playful than serious.
    In real life, that also happens when I'm comfortable around people. I get creative, and stupid funny things come out. It actually happened today xD

    Other times, I'm more serious in here, and try to actually give meaningful responses. That rarely happens in real life, because the nature of the convos in here is rarely achieved in reality for me.

  • Not really. Partly because I don't typically say what I'm thinking and not nearly as blunt and partly because I don't usually have conversations about 90% of the content that comes across this site. But generally, if I'm in a conversation, most of the shit I say on here is what's going on in my head... Kinda like when a chick asks you how she looks and you wanna say she has great tits, but you don't wanna get slapped in the face so you compliment her hair 😂😂😂

  • I'm much more snarky in person once I get to know you. Otherwise I've learned to control it until I know someone can take it.

  • I'm more depressed on GAG than IRL I'm a joyful person, usually smiling and very extroverted! And also shy.
    Here I take forever to reply to my messages/ notifications as I have a lot and can't manage it, but irl I don't ignore people!

  • It's often difficult to define "tone" in any sort of text. Here on GaG, I may sound cocky, bitchy and rude, but in real life I'm actually the opposite. I wouldn't say it's EXACTLY like my personality (in real life) but it's a small aspect of it.
