    I'm more worried about social consequences irl, and so generally say less. I tend to speak my actual mind online, but then go back and delete my posts. In a weird way that is the same as irl, except I just think it before I delete it. Overall I do say more online about depression and annoyance.

    Edit: irl or online I don't try to be something different than I am, but I tend to do a lot of editing where I try to provide the least information possible - moreso irl

    I'm more open on the internet for sure, but still on the quiet side of things. My shyness carries over when I get nervous when people comment on my posts, even though I want them to notice them. I'm very reserved irl and not very good at friending to say the least. On the internet I can be more of my goofball self, where as people on campus see me as the shy sweet one(though it reins true here I think too). I feel like I can speak freely more here, though with it being a forum, when I post it's almost like perfecting a story, like irl how I rehearse things before I speak.
    Paws off my Amethyst!

    The verbal part of my brain is engaged more online. IRL I like to speak in shorter simpler sentences, or only use 1-2 words at a time. Online there is more time for reflection and for creating more complex thought structures and sentences lol. I also read less of nonverbals of people online because they are just text to my brain unless I've met them IRL because then I can "imagine" into the online interaction how their person is in reality. It all becomes more personal IRL (in a good way). So online I get extra logical and detached compared to IRL if I'm not careful. But I also initiate more interaction online so in that way I get more engaged.
