    "Whenever two people meet, there are really six people present. There is each man as he sees himself, each man as the other person sees him and each man as he really is." - William James

    I think that avatars are also how we want to be perceived. Which is to say, how we want/wish to be vs. how we "are".
    "The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents... Some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new Dark Age. " - H.P. Lovecraft

    @Rail Tracer

    I think it, and the prior one, image.jpg, sort of state the same message.

    Irl, I have a very elemental quality that these avatars address. I am both educated and primal, cultured and spirited. I am both vulnerable and formidable.

    @SpankyMcFly I love that quote.
    A student said to his master: "You teach me fighting, but you talk about peace. How do you reconcile the two?" The master replied: "It is better to be a warrior in a garden than to be a gardener in a war." - unknown/Chinese

    Given my belief that my avatar tells everything about me, my avatar probably tells less about me than I believe.

    Ooh, what's the story?

    This is why I play female characters in computer games.

    Well half of your face is shadowed while the other is brightly lit, and your gaze is directed upward. This indicates that you have dramatically different personality traits, and you show most strangers only the darker ones while you are largely occupied considering lofty questions of a philosophical or spiritual nature. The t-shirt you wear indicates a disinterest in the banalities of fashion and disdain for the preoccupation with appearances in mainstream culture, while your conventional haircut reveals a utilitarian attitude toward grooming. The closed blinds in the background indicate that you like to shut out the chaos of the outside world, while you keep yourself occupied with what appear to be...rom-com dvds sitting on a table behind you?

    ...Okay, if it wasn't clear by now, I'm flailing around in the dark here.

    Mine have been all over the place.

    It depends on the mood. Perhaps I (subconsciously) choose them to represent how I would like to be seen, although often I just choose something aesthetically pleasing.

    I like art that explores the interception of commercialism and aesthetics.

    As for myself, I like to think that my avatar reveals my amazing taste in humorous art.

    ...But to be honest, I think it does reflect something about me. Not exactly sure what that something is though...
