“Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people of the world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside
them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe.” -Neil Gaiman
I do think that some people visit forums like these a bit more for the hanging out/bantering/making friends/flirting aspects (and they're perhaps more likely to make threads like the popularity ones or random acknowledgement or whatever), and others more for the "let's learn about typology and get input from other interesting people" aspect (which is more where I am - and I probably come across as a bit dour and unpopular as a result!)
While there are certainly plenty of people I like and find interesting on TypeC, I guess my impulse is to stay a bit more detached in the social aspects partly because I feel that I have enough people/friendships to maintain/keep up with IRL, and don't want to spread myself thin.
