    Default How would you feel if they found out who you were on typology central?

    Some people on here give us their real pictures and info, and others are very anonymous.

    How comfortable would you be if you were "outed" and everyone you knew in real life knew what you had written on this forum?

    Well, I don't say nasty things on the forums about people I know in real life. But at the same time, I know that some people don't like being interpreted and analysed. I know that some people find it invasive or rude. But that's kind of what MBTI and the other personality-typing things are about! (Analysing…not being rude.) So, anonymity seems the safest option.

    I'd personally be okay with other people interpreting my actions, though.

    I notice you don't have your real picture up.

    I wouldn't be very happy. I haven't posted too much of substance in here though, so I doubt it would have any significant impact. It would deal a bit of a blow to my desire to have certain areas of my life left separate from others and incorporated into my overall life on my terms.

    I like to compartmentalize my life... this site has its own compartment. I am NEVER pleased when one compartment spills into another one

    It wouldn't really matter, it isn't like I'm spilling the beans on anyone or bleeding emotionally on the forum walls. There isn't really anything here I wouldn't want anybody else to see. I don't feel any particular need to remain anonymous or to create some sort of space.

    I'm always open. People will always overreact to typology and it really just stems from misunderstanding. I'm an open book and I'll never be afraid of being different. I know what I'm doing is fine; they can deal with it.

    I don't care.

    I don't say anything on here that I wouldn't and haven't said in real life. I've posted a grand total of one picture of myself, and it was one used for a self-portrait art project, so people have already seen it anway in real life.

    Maybe I'd be a little grouchy if someone I didn't like too much started to pester me about things I say here, but it's not a big enough deal that I'd get upset over it.

    I've told people irl about the site and/or typology.

    The responses above make me think I've been doing something wrong lol

    I act exactly the same on the forum as I do irl, so I would be fine. There would be no dirty laundry to air!

    I would be tempted to isolate, because it would totally ruin my persona and some people would see parts of me that im not comfortable sharing in real life. but then again there wouldnt be anything to do to take it all back, so fuck it. id try to not let it bother me, because i realize that its painful just because of, well i dont really know why and thats the point, its just some stupid irrational fear like someone afraid of spiders..
