    I'm not good at small talk or bullshitting offline and the communication style is vastly different. On the internet, you're not reading body language or looking someone in the eyes when you engage them; people are faceless avatars. I tend to have somewhat of a serious demeanor even when I'm not upset or concerned. The context for fluff isn't readily apparent to me offline. Some people probably view that as boring.

    I'm just weird regardless of where I am. Not boring, but not exactly enthralling either.

    People generally say that I "tend" to be down to earth in RL. I'm probably a bit less down to earth when it comes to online interaction. Or from my experience, it is different online.

    I can have fun, but it tends to be a hit or miss.

    The ''willing'' part should be the key.
    Willing does not always mean entertaining or stimulating though

    Yes, that's why I included 'capable'.

    That seems unexpected that a willingness to discuss ideas would change in the online environment. I would think that is the one thing that would be consistent in different settings. That's the one thing that I've found consistent. I wonder why that is? Maybe people feel more social pressure to respond in a pleasing way irl, but online they express more of what they actually think because they aren't as sensitive to rejection?

    I think some extroverts (note I said some) need the whole "in person" package to be engaged in a conversation. They're interested in ideas primarily as a means to connect with people. My sister seems to be one of these people. She's super fun and a great conversationalist, but spends next to no time online and when she is online she pretty much makes jokes that aren't as funny as they would be if she said them out loud.
