People pretend to be someone else because they are afraid that if people find out how they really are no one will like them.
Everyone wants to impress another person, be popular and try to be cool.
Sometimes people are just really insecure and wants everyone to like them so they try to act a certain way hoping people will like them .

i agree with every one else that has said that they do it to fit in but seriously if some one doesn't like how i am i could care less i would rather be alone than pretend to be some one im not that's why i only hang out with the people i can get along with while being myself.

People pretending to be someone they're not.. Maybe people are ashamed of what they are and not are. Maybe the closest thing to be whom they want to be is to live as they were it. But from what I have seen, you guys thinks it's a bad thing to be a poser. If someone were to tell you how to live, would you listen to him if you were acting as the one you want to be? It is not bad to have dreams and hopes, it's not bad to strive for being the person you want to be. I think the one people really are is the one they want to be.

As long as you can stand for who you are, and from my view you are the one you want to be, nothing is wrong.

Is normally in teens before you completely get and forge your personality. Can be because you want to seem someone that is cool for you like tv idols, or characters of game, movie, anime, etc.. Can be too for lack of confidence. Or for impresionante someone, there is a lot of possibilities of why.

Sometimes pretending to have qualities you might not have, might give you the confidence to actually have those qualities. Like if you're shy and you get into a new environment and pretend that you've always been outgoing, you might have to confidence to be a more outgoing person. I used to do that all the time b/c actually I was terrified of speaking in public and introducing myself to other people, etc, but I forced myself to be different b/c I really wanted to be able to do those things.

To be able to get the qualities of the person you want to be is to climb a step closer to your ideal self. As my favorite motto is, "True change can not be made if it's bound by laws and limitations, predictions and imagination". Cudos to you.

I guess it's because they don't know who they really are, so they think the best thing to do is pretend to be a whole different person. But it leads to trouble. Say you pretended to be a manga artist, but truly you can't draw manga. Someone then asks you to draw them a manga picture, but you can't!


I think these people don't like their own true selves. People should be true to themselves, because the real you is more amazing than you ever dreamed

I agree I think people pretend to be someone their not because they want to be accepted. Maybe they are lonely, have no friends, and so in order to fit in they pretend to be like others in order to be accepted. I really think it has a lot to do with lack of self confidence. Maybe they don't think they are good enough to have friends...something along those lines.
