Its interesting how in the world of cyberspace, we come off as having a certain personality
Do you come off as this in the real world?
How do people relate to you in the real world VS cyperspace?January 6, 2011 9:39 pm at 9:39 pm #725811
I lie more in real life. I don’t like to lie as much online.
I am really good at lying.
(There is an award for lying given every year by the University of Akron, but I never tried out for it.)January 6, 2011 9:40 pm at 9:40 pm #725812
In real life,as in cyberspace,some people like me,some people don’t.
Hopefully,more do than don’t.January 6, 2011 9:40 pm at 9:40 pm #725813
Did you believe that?January 6, 2011 9:41 pm at 9:41 pm #725814bptParticipant

I think popa was lying about the lying.January 6, 2011 10:20 pm at 10:20 pm #725820RuffRuffMember
In real life I don’t mix into conversations.January 6, 2011 10:25 pm at 10:25 pm #725821
In real life,you can’t edit what you say…gotta think first!January 6, 2011 10:28 pm at 10:28 pm #725822TheGoqParticipant
my so called sense of humor is much tamer in personJanuary 6, 2011 10:34 pm at 10:34 pm #725823
I once totally made up a story and told it to the Satmar Rebbe. He saw right through it.January 7, 2011 2:23 am at 2:23 am #725824NonsenseMember
Same as with driving, many take on a new personality (or lack of it)January 7, 2011 2:53 am at 2:53 am #725825
I think I come across intense in the CR. IRL I dont voice my opinion that much and I am much more easy-going/laid back.January 7, 2011 3:37 am at 3:37 am #725826
That’s so interesting. Is it because you get to say things anonymously online?January 7, 2011 3:56 am at 3:56 am #7258271dayatatimeParticipant
Thanks to all those that answered
The point is, that when you read a comment from someone your reaction is much different than if that person was face to face
When your speaking to someone you can hear their tone of voice, and see their facial expressions
But, in cyberspace you can only read what someone else says and. Decide based on your own feelings is how you react
So when we read a post, let’s not be so quick to judge and critisize because we don’t even know the other person and the tone in which theyr expressing what they want to sayJanuary 7, 2011 4:39 am at 4:39 am #725828RuphRuphMember
In real life no one calls me Joseph.January 7, 2011 6:15 am at 6:15 am #725829bein_hasdorimParticipant
Besides for a few tweaks I’m basically the same guy,
definitely more toned down in the CR.
My shittos are even nuttier in person.
That’s the problem with all deep thinkers I guess,
I don’t mean intelligent people, just people do their thinking in a bathing suit while threading water.January 7, 2011 2:22 pm at 2:22 pm #725830psach libi bsorasechaMember
im much more tone down in crJanuary 7, 2011 2:33 pm at 2:33 pm #725831
Not at all, I believe the same things anonymously and in person.
I feel that those who always need to “be heard” and have their opinions out there are either a- really lacking a coherent thought b- lacking a self esteem c- lacking personality, and need to make up for it by pushing their views and opinions on others.
Being that this is a forum dedicated to an exchange of opinions and ideas, I get to unleash whats on the brain 🙂January 7, 2011 3:05 pm at 3:05 pm #725833
Wow Sac that is a bit harsh, don’t you think?
While I agree with you that people who always are pushing their opinions on others are obviously lacking something, I do think there is a happy medium.
“Exchange of opinions and ideas” should not only be reserved for an online forum. If you have something interesting to say that would add to a conversation, or a different viewpoint that was not yet considered, speaking up is admirable and should not be looked down upon.January 7, 2011 3:47 pm at 3:47 pm #725834
“speaking up is admirable”
…and silence is golden.January 7, 2011 5:29 pm at 5:29 pm #725835
But you seem to have a lot of smart things to say, so why don’t you give others in real life the opportunity to hear your opinions?January 7, 2011 6:06 pm at 6:06 pm #725836
As the great lawyer Gary Naftalis was quoted as saying:
” Dont be fooled by those who are raising their hands at the beginning of class. There is an inverse relationship between those who raise their hands at the beginning of class and those who end up doing well.”January 7, 2011 7:06 pm at 7:06 pm #725837
Yeah cuz those who raise their hand in the beginning of the class are probably asking a question from last class, so they must be a little slow on the uptake. 🙂January 7, 2011 7:34 pm at 7:34 pm #725838nfgo3Member
I’m better-looking on line.January 9, 2011 12:56 am at 12:56 am #725839aries2756Participant
