    RE: Are you the same person in real life?

    in my true personality (that is, the one i have when i'm alone), i'm laidback, extremely rational (to the point of overthinking), and quiet. With people, i'm loud, crazy, and the person most likely to go up to a complete stranger and talk to them. so, i guess my online personality is a combination of the best aspects of both of my real personalities: i'm not a full out troll, but also not a silent lurker.

    Sometimes that's how I am, too. It's the mob effect; it doesn't matter how you act, if you're with other people acting loud and outgoing, chances are that it will start having an effect on you. In one way it can be exciting, but at the same time it can feel like you're conforming to something outside of your personality. A constant struggle, just like almost everything else.
    A boy has the right to dream. There are endless possibilities stretched out before him. What awaits him down the path he will then have to choose; the boy doesn't always know. At some point the boy then becomes an adult, and learns what he was able to become. Joy and sadness will forever accompany this. He is confronted with a choice; when this happens, does he bid his past farewell in his heart? Once a boy becomes an adult, he can no longer go back to being a boy; the boy is now a man. Only one thing can be said: "A boy has the right to dream.". For those endless possibilities are stretched out before him.

    We must remember...all men were once boys.

    RE: Are you the same person in real life?

    I'm pretty much the same online that I am offline. The only real exception I guess is my confidence. I tend to say what i'm thinking online where as in real life I hold my opinions back especially if they go against the opinions of someone else.

    But that's normal. It's easier to trust "letters", because they don't have emotions, mimics, so you can "hear" them the way you like.
    It's like for me it's been always easier to write than talk because I have time to think of what I want to say. I have a great sense of humour but I think pretty slowly so I can't react at once. Those good responses come to me always too late. It's not like this when I'm online.
    But still I don't think it's fake. It's like you try to say that we are fake when we are with friends or when we are on a business dinner. We're different here and different there. But we're still we.
    Like if a disable person can't talk - doesn't mean that it's fake when they talk in the internet. It's just they can't do this in real life. And neither can we. There are things we cannot do in real life but they are easier in virtual one.

    RE: Are you the same person in real life?

    In some ways, I'm exactly the same offline as online I have the same sense of humour and I don't feel I'm pretending to be someone I'm not. I type as I think in my head.

    I am less talkative offline though. I listen far more than I actually say things. And I find it easier to say what I'm thinking online, since I don't have to make the vital connection between my brain and my tongue

    RE: Are you the same person in real life?

    I think I may be a little more kind and gentler online that I would be in real life. Which is kind of funny as I can easily be seen as hardcore online. I think the fact that in real life, I have more knowledge of the people that I am speaking to and they me, I'll be that much more free with my opinion. Whereas, online the tone can often be lost in print and things can get misinterpreted without much effort.

    I also don't express my full range of humor online as you don't want people to get the wrong impression from one sentence or two or have them pull it way out of context and forever use it against you. That happens in real life also, but when it's written out, you have it word for word forever.

    ROTFL. What about the connection between your brain and your fingers? It's seems that online we trade brain for fingers I'm not sure if this is good way to be but... fine...
    Being serious, I think I get it. I think faster than I can talk, but I open my mouth and talk faster then I can think... Does it make any sense? Online if I "talk" with my fingers too fast it doesn't count as long as I don't press Enter I think I need such Enter in real life

    It makes sense to me. There's no "brb" mid-conversation in real life, sadly. Oh, if I had the power to freeze time.

    RE: Are you the same person in real life?

    Makes perfect sense. As long as you're behind a back-lit screen in an environment such as this, you have all the time in the world to reply to a conversation and voice your opinion. In real life, you only have as long as the topic of conversation stands before it changes; even then, you have to think quick about what you're going to say. When that happens, you could forget something vital you wanted to add or you may have said it wrong.

    Then again, it's all about practice. The more often you put yourself in situations in which you need to think and act quickly to get a point across, the more natural it will become and the more confident you will become.

    The problem is getting into that "perfect situation"...

    That reminds me... Can you imagine talking in real life like on the web chat? When you mix threads, talk two or more different issues at the same time, go back to one topic, then change it into another and once again go back to the first one:

    10:30:11 A: Remember this red dress of mine?
    10:30:15 A: Oh, and this reminds me... how was this film you watched yesterday?
    10:30:16 B: Yeah, I remember... What about it?
    10:30:18 A: I lost it!
    10:30:19 B: Oh, it was boring. Really?! Lost it? How come?
    10:30:29 A: Boring? And it supposed to be the best film of the year...
    10:30:37 B: Good point. It supposed to be...
    10:30:39 A: I don't know how it happened but it's gone..


    You know what I mean?
