    Hah, your thread title reminds me of... my own signature.

    I definitely am the same person online or in real life, the same values, thoughts, ideas and most importantly, attitude, though in real life I'll never reveal my opinions to strangers.

    Probably the important things on Typology Central are that we are being psychologically shaped by an electronic medium, and that this is hidden from us because content of our electronic medium is print.

    So the really important question to ask ourselves is, how are we being psychologically shaped on this electronic medium?

    This is a difficult question to answer because we are the very psyches that are being shaped.

    And this is a difficult question to answer because our psyches focus on the content of the medium rather than the effects of the medium itself.

    So I think it is fair to say that we are being unconsciously shaped by Typology Central, while at the same time having the illusion we are in conscious control.

    my dear Mole

    thank you

    but we told the medium is the message?

    when one steps back into reality, what medium is in play there?

    what medium shapes our psyches in the real world?

    do we again dwell on content, rather than effects?

    does reality, too, just become ... illusion?

    Reading anything that is posted is a window into another person's mind. As far as living vicariously, that can easily be interpreted any time we take pleasure in other's experiences without it fully inspiring us to act it out IRL.

    Don't take life so seriously. It's not like you're going to get out alive.

    lacking feedback on opinion, would your real self then be in some sense impoverished were it not for your online self?

    Mole would have it (perhaps) that the online self rather than augment one's real self it deludes it, allowing for a far lesser real self?
