Do you act the same in real life as you do online?

Which means, for example, if you are bubbly and outgoing online, does that reflect who you are outside of the Internet as well?

and to answer this question for myself: kind of. I'm very shy I'm real life while on g@g I am more fun and outgoing, especially towards my "g@g friends" (which is a large percentage of the g@g populace). In real life it takes me a while to fully warm up to people who I have aquantied with. Once I get to know you though I am a little fire cracker 😜

  • Sort of. I'm a bit more outgoing in online conversations than I am in person.

    Part of it is because of shyness, but as I get older I don't think I'm as shy; I was just always better at writing than at speaking. I feel that sometimes my brain works too slowly for real-time speech, in terms of translating what's in my head into spoken words. Of course, there is not that problem with writing. I often leave an in-person conversation realizing that I forgot to tell the other person something, or to go into a specific important detail that would have affected how they viewed that something, etc. xD It's something I'm still working to improve, hopefully.

      Mostly because this site cares about people's feelings (Random rant: If you're on the edge of suicide that one opinion can literally end your life... you should be in therapy instead of the Internet) , some of my opinions/jokes have been censored

  • I am Pretty much the same, although Offline, I Am Able to be Less "Businesslike" Like in Answering problems, and More Relaxed. Or even if I would Not feel Myself, I don't like to Display it, it is Impolite to Show this on Gag.
    I am Diplomatic, although when Challenged very Rudely, I will Defend myself, who wouldn't? And I am a Straight Shooter, I don't Like to Point Fingers, although when it Comes to Politics, I will tell you My Honest Opinion on that Sore Subject, and the Rest of what I Believe in this World.
    Anyone else who is Not Who they Say, must be some Actor or Actress. My Gig on Gag is Writing and Helping others. But of course, Each and Everyone on Here is Here for whatever Motive in Mind.

  • I'm different irl depending on my mood, time of day, how big the group is, what class, what I'm wearing. Some people think I'm super bubbly and nice in person, others think I'm a mouse, others that I'm cold. It just depends... but I'm overall just nice. (lol, maybe not all the time on GaG)

  • It's a little bit of both honestly. Online people get to me more and I'm more aggressive. In person I don't get bothered by much and I'm super calm and nice. I'm trying to implement my real personality more into my gag experience, but sometimes that's a little difficult. I think the way I write can sound cold and blunt even though I'm being genuine. Tone is everything, and online the tone you have is dependent on the reader's mood.

  • I'm pretty much the same person. I 'm very curious and I like to pose questions, sometimes even playing devil's advocate and stirring discussion, and obtaining knowledge on things that are useful to me. I like to talk to people despite not being able to form close friendships easily. I feel I can express myself better here, because I can think before I post, and because in real life I get anxious and I don't deal well with people who yell or cry. Here I can keep my cool and offer my help.
