    i'm more open in person and less worried about offending people or being misunderstood.

    I'm less formal in real life. Still terse, though.

    Why? Are there not greater consequences for offending people in person than online?

    It varies from person to person how communicating over the internet effects them. Some might be more inhibited, while others will be less. I think that how you act, in many ways, all the time makes up who you are. Now I know there I times that you feel that you acted entirely as if that things that you did wasn't you at all. That's normal in some respect. Ultimately, I feel though that different parts of ourselves show through at different times.

    Maybe each type, considering we act and feel (or not feel) differently toward people in the real world, is predictable in a sense of how seriously they take the internet. For example, someone who likes people in real life will obviously be more "considerate" online, which isn't to say that they're any more aware of the people on the internet being actual people (I know reality is sibjectiv,e not getting into that here), they just care more and so will act differently.

    it's just the format...the lack of tone or facial expression...it frustrates me... and i can see when someone is bothered in person and explain further if i need to.

    must have something to do with that f too...you wouldn't understand.

    I am quieter in real life. I do not necessarily jump into random conversations in real life like I do on this forum.
