    Are you, in real life, the same person as your internet alter ego(s)?

    Between insane and insecure
    I am 90% the same, but I am a little braver online than in real life

    Not at all.

    In 'real life' I'm a quiet miserable git that gives the distinct impression to anyone nearby that if you dare talk to me I WILL kill you... even my co-workers keep at a good distance.

    On the internets no one knows who I am am so I usually stay nice happy person... even if it is a lie it makes for a better online experience to pretend i'm someone else, and unlike real life I can disappear by simply clicking log out [​IMG]

    Well, I tend to be more quiet and reserved in real life than online, but not to an excessive extent.

    This goes for just about everybody. I'm usually a little more wordy and sugar-coated when it comes to correcting people since conversing with somebody about a problem 1:1 doesn't have the aggravating issues that post-follows-post has.

    I'm a hell of a lot more shy IRL though.

    I think I'm about the same really. Ultimately I guess you'd have to ask the people on here who've met me though.

    I say what I think much more often online.
    In person I'll keep everything to myself.

    I guess about the same, but I'm slightly more outgoing online.

    I can't be too different, because I have a real-life friend on this board.

    Anywhere you think of me.
    I guess you could say, Sin Harvest is part of my real life persona which i choose to spot-light on when online.

    IRL i'm a pretty conservative person around people i don't really know but when i'm with my friends i just do/say things (most of the time) without second thinking it.


    IRL my personality depends on the people i'm around.

    Online though, i really don't give a fuck.....

    This. I have a social life that's been slowly expanding, but I've been keeping my bubble closed for the most part.

    I'm horrible at instructing people irl, though. The words are right, but my inflection is always wrong. I always sound like I'm being condescending when teaching someone something, and I can't stop even when I catch myself. I just feel bad afterward.
    And it sucks too, because I've been asked by numerous people to be a math tutor. @__@

    Virtually the same.
    I have a fair amount of self control, so in real life it's not like I just go around saying everything on my mind to people. That's how a person gets fired, especially when several customers are morons. Otherwise i'm pretty forward with saying something, regardless of how harsh something might sound. I'm not great at sugar coating, nor do I think people need it.

    Unless someones never seen me post before, that tends to be how I post as well. I'm not one for censoring myself too often.

    In real life I kill people for fun, but I can't do that on forums, so i'm forced to civilly deal with them.
