I'm the same. Obviously writing is much different than speaking, so that changes things though.

I tend to be the same person on the forums than I am in real life I suppose...However I'm more social and speak to more people in real life than on the forums. I may make friends and chat for a couple of weeks, but I don't keep in contact for some reason.

Not really different, I write the same way that I talk. It's just that I don't talk about my hobby with others in real life.

I'm pretty much the same, with very little difference. I can express myself/my opinions more online because I wouldn't give a shit if people judge me for it. but irl, I tend to be a little more careful with what I say there's too much drama irl, gotta avoid that

No. As I'm shy, it's easier for me talking to complete stranger or debating about certain topics here than when I'm off line; but aside for that I'm still the same person and I don't think I behave in a very different way.

I don't think that internet users in general are so different from their "real life version". Yeah, people may behave differently according where they are and with who they are, but in the end they are just showing different sides of themselves. That said, people tend to act more uninhibited, and many times more aggressive, on Internet as they perceive there are little up to none consequences there in comparison to the real world.

I am a lot more shy IRL. If I can avoid going outside, then I will go with that option 100% of the time.

One thing I AM VERY thankful for is the ability to be myself at school. I am sure you guys have mixed feelings about what I have to say, but I go to a Christian school, and despite many not living up to the the Christian name (including myself), it is a very positive environment. I can openly talk about anime without feeling judgment from others and even started up the comic book club at my school! This kind of atmosphere allows me to be the same person irl that I am online!

Not really. My attitude is pretty consistent, I think.

I'm not as talkative in real life. If you can get a few sentences out of me, call yourself lucky or a good conversationalist.


The essence of me is the same, whether in real life or online. I'm blunt as ever, and have no tact. I've seen people who are sweet like honey; I can understand how that sort of attitude can attract people like honey to the bee; you feel very comfortable around them and your ego is always inflated by them.

But personally, I'm not drawn to personalities like that at all... as I prefer straightforward and straight to the point people. And I always find those sweet personality people tend to be nastier than everyone else when they show their true colours.

I can put on a front when I feel like it, but generally-speaking, I am myself.
Granted, I believe that I express myself better in writing than I do when speaking--but only if I'm speaking impromptu. And the reason for that would be because I'm able to take more time to formulate my responses while writing. When I am attempting to be humorous online, I'm never sure if it comes across correctly, because I tend to have a rather dark sense of humor. Then again, I'm not sure if it always comes across IRL, either

I'm an ENTJ--I think that must have something to do with it.

Hey brother! No Christian can live up to Christ besides Christ. We are all sinners. So, don't apologize for that. People tend to (mistakenly) put Christians on a pedestal. It's okay. I am glad that you are having a positive experience at your school--back when I was your age, I often ran into adversity in school because I would stand up for my faith and defend it because that's what the Holy Spirit has me do. So, I'm very happy for you. I just wanted to let you know that, regardless of what anyone thinks about what you say, I think you're cool. Never stop being yourself. God bless you and keep you, and I look forward to meeting you in Paradise. Spiritual warfare does exist--so be ready and prepared to face it. The hour is late. And the Day is drawing nearer. But I'm sure you know that, already.
