    But a big However is needed. Irl, I am basically incapable of describing things/presenting things in the way that I post on the forums. Many probably notice that a lot of my posts are very long. Writing is the only way for me to compose and articulate everything that is in my head, as I have the time to do so, and the time to actually structure my thoughts and tie them together - and elaborate/explain. I believe that what I post here DOES mirror my internal mind a lot - and lines up with my thoughts.

    Irl, none of this occurs. Irl my actual thoughts are not presented in the way I present them while posting. Irl, I'll come across as vague/succinct/brief, and pretty quiet, and I tend to speak just one or two sentences to sum up what I think - or when I'm excited about something I'll just be talking about how excited/happy I am. lol. But again, it's extremely general statements; more often me asking questions of the other person. (my videos that I posted more accuately reflect how I come across irl). My internal world/thoughts doesn't translate well via speaking, I guess - certainly not in the in-the-moment way that is required socially/conversationally. So in some ways, my posts are probably more 'true to form' than I am irl. They capture my inner world in ways which aren't reflected irl.
    This is very much true for me, too. I'm not good at regular speaking, so public speaking can be....interesting. I stumble over my words a lot and don't really know how to organize what I'm trying to say so that it makes sense. It's easy if I write it out, although I still go back and change words around, change my mind where I wanted to head, organize my thoughts, etc. I wish you could do that when speaking.

    With regard to content, IRL there's a lot more hedging and being polite. Here I don't bother so much. I also don't really "debate" people often IRL since the opportunity rarely comes up. So I would come off as agreeable and polite much more IRL than here.

    to this.

    I'm rather inarticulate, vague, convoluted and rambly IRL. I have difficulty with speaking in complete sentences and my range of vocabulary deserts me. I also think I write more formally here than I speak - I'm more jokey and laid-back.

    Someone mentioned the video thread; I was thinking of this too. I found that some people were not anything like I imagined them to be - not in a bad way but I just found a bizarre disconnect between the RL person and the online persona. I don't think that they are faking a personality here, but perhaps (as cascadeco said) merely better reflecting their internal state.

    they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.

    When speaking, I trip over my words. If I try to speak quickly I end up saying something different from what I'm thinking, then I have to correct it, but before I can I usually get interrupted by the other person. That usually doesn't happen in writing. I am also much more concise in writing, unless I start rambling.

    A different type everyday - so no need to type me anymore. But feel free to enjoy the sound of your own asscrack.

    If I did, there would be a lot more cursing, that's for sure.
