    Default Avatars As Communicators of Emotion

    Avatars As Communicators Of Emotions from the friendly sciencedaily emails.

    I note that when we went into a competitive mode of forum behavior, I changed my avatar from harmless to threatening. That was a conscious choice, however.

    My avatars are a conscious choice of an image that represents me as meaningfully as i can come up with. I like having a representative image. The avatar and sig are like "if you wanted people to know one thing about you, what would it be?"

    Yup, it's true. Thanks to this thread, however, I feel my deepest darkest emotions are exposed. I've changed my avatar accordingly. (It's the phoenix mars robot.)

    What does mine say?
    I 100%, N 88%, T 88%, J 75%

    Haha, I bet "wuff wuff" xD

    Intresting in those "scientific theories" I find, are words like "A PhD thesis" or "Scientists have been working for decades" xD.

    Ph.D. entropy says "76 % of Bananas are bad for your health", inescapeable scientific, period ! xD

    The wolf is an interesting choice. It's a furry warm animal in a cold environment. Also, most wolf avatars show the wolf alone even though they're communal creatures. Interpret that as you will. Your wolf, however, shows a sense of humor and laid-back attitude. Now where's my Ph.D.?

    I wonder if people see me differently now that I've changed my avatar from a laughing character to one about to slip into a deep-thought coma?

    I think it does convey a lot of meaning. I find I feel brittle or tired or upset, I tend to reflect it in my icon.

    But today, who can be grumpy or irritable with the Bruce!?
