    Ah, I can see that now. But before, it was like the intensity of the cat's anger made it as powerful as a lion in my mind. You might say I made a mountain lion out of a field kitten... or something. I tend to be more affected by the emotions I see in something than the ability of said creature to do something about them.

    I mean, honestly... instead of looking at the cat's size, pay attention to what it's expressing. Imagine what it would do... if it could actually ACT on what it was feeling, and impact people or other animals with it's state of mind.

    I suppose that perception is because I'm such a mind over matter person. I fear the one with the biggest temper, more than I fear the one with the biggest claws.
    I guess it's all in how you see that picture of the cat projecting emotion. Where as I see him projecting amusement or hilarity, you see him projecting anger. I guess I can see that, because it could look to someone else like he's hissing. I never saw it before because I was so convinced that the cat appeared to be laughing.

    In reality an angry cat can be an unsettling thing, I agree.

    Well, that's probably just because I've never seen a cat laugh. I had a cat once, and he never laughed. He purred with contentment, got nervous, meowed for attention, and got mad. Those were the only emotional states I ever saw. Maybe I just didn't have a very expressive cat...

    I was being mistaken for Hot 80's Val Kilmer so I had to put myself up instead as proof that I am a girl and NOT in fact a tasty blond god jackass playing volleyball.

    I believe avatars can definitely affect how we feel about the person. There was one avatar that was hot! Other avatars give me a vibe, some leave no lasting impression at all. Not all of them, but some like Synarch's really identify the person. Which is always a good thing.

    I love your avatar. I really hope you don't change it.


    ETA: I picked mine because she has my hair, except mine is redder. I also just liked the flow and movement of it.

    I do think people react to avatars. Sometimes I'm tempted to put up a Jeffster-type pin-up and watch the responses to my posts double. I'm cynical enough without that, though.

    I usually pick an avatar that either illustrates a concept I think is funny, or is an oblique picture of me.

    Have you noticed changes in the way other people interact with you after changing your av?

    I use mine so people know what I mean by "Helios", or at least people familiar with a certain videogame.

    That is sad. Isn't it?
