    Default Personality and the internet.

    Here's a question for you guys...

    Do you think that the way a person behaves on the internet (if they behave differently than they do in real life) is their true personality, is it somewhat of a second personality, or something else?

    Feel free to move this in the wrong category.

    Oh, and this is a thread about opinions. I'm just bored asking random questions.

    My online posting style is how I behave around close friends and people I know. I am much more shy, much more reserved, in public and in general social settings. But if you were my friend in real life, my online persona would be an accurate representation of myself.

    Does your personality change when you're on the internet disney?
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    I'd say the internet is rather impersonal, at least from my standpoint. I know I'm much more reserved toward people in real life, mostly because the I see the internet as a place to gather and produce information at my own pace, and on the subjects I desire, rather than actual life. While I am interacting with real people, I know I'll never meet them IRL (yes there are exceptions, no I am not one of them) if anything, I'm more likely not to have even that slight care for the presence of others that I do in real life.

    There is, however, no noticable difference in any reaction I would have- If I think you're an idiot I'll let you know, no matter what instance.

    So I'd say not for me in particular, though maybe for the younger generations or less mature or something. Not too sure on that.

    After going to an online meetup it seemed like no one was surprised by my demeanour.
    So I'd say that no, I'm not really that different online.

    No, but I'm a bit more shy in real life. I relate to JocktheMotie's post.

    I am less shy over the net, and a bit more open.

    Could be someone is the same person in both. But the other, who observed a difference, seen that difference because of the way they interpreted the writing of the observed. Good thread. An NT would possably see another NTs writing grasping it's original intent. With the exception of INTJ. They require more precision. But that's how i interpret INTJs on the internet. In real life an INTJ would precisely interpret me everytime. While an SJ/SP may stack immediacy to the NTs intent. The i(NT)js immediacy only rests in the syntax of my way of communicating. I can't speak for anyone else, obviously. You are Isxx. I don't have any experience with that. They make eye opening threads though.

    I'm all over the place in real life, just like my posting style here.
