    No, I am much more succinct online than I am in real life. Mostly because I don't want to subject the reader to a bunch of redundancy (I often say the same thing 20 different ways in an attempt to capture some nuance) and/or I'm lazy.

    I use a much bolder tone on here.

    I suppose I do. I notice when I pause and think about what to say I often type "um..." and the like, and just leave them in there.

    Also, I cannot hold a conversation with someone and type about something completely different, because whatever I'm thinking about saying to that other person usually ends up being what I type. I've written many e-mails at work like:

    "I received that document in an e-mail from [so-and-so] and yeah I don't know Mike, I think you should probably put that on the other side of the room and..."

    I'm pretty much exactly the opposite. I'm much more vocal on forums than I am in person, with just a few exceptions.

    Irl, none of this occurs.
    -- I'm this way too. It's a lot easier for me to get my thoughts into coherent word-form in writing than speaking. The only exception is when I'm giving a presentation or something that I've thought about in detail in advance. Otherwise I'm often verbally clumsy -- stumbling and repeating myself in my search for the perfect phrase.

    I'm sort of an crudely drawn caricature of actual self in that the thoughts are similar, yet the presentation varies. Most things I type jokingly are things I'd snicker about in my head, yet never say aloud publicly, whereas forums allow me to rid myself of the inhibition. Besides that though my argumentation style is fairly similar.

    Sometimes. I think the problem with interpreting me on this forum is that sometimes I am posting in my real voice, sometimes I'm being an epic horrifying caricature of myself, and I can tell you for sure that I am consistently extremely direct on this forum in a way that I am usually not IRL, and people who have either met me or at least communicated with me via PM will realize that.

    I'm definitely using my own voice. Aside from the brief pauses in my conversation (which replace "um" and "uh" for me), it's exactly alike.

    Right down to my overuse of parenthetical thoughts.

    Absolutely, I think. I even add in some of my uhm's and ah's, because I just type stuff down. Sometimes, I review over it, but not too frequently. It is pretty easy to get a feel for me.

    Unless I go into ninja mode. In which case, all is lost.

    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    My real life voice sounds like the chicken witch doctor.
