Do you act differently in real life than you do on ddo?

Why?

What aspects of yourself do express differently in one are or the other?

Which "persona" do you prefer?

I'd say I pretty much am the same. But i realize this is not the case for many people and I would like to get some insight as to what causes you to express yourself in a different way on here.

I am not very outgoing in real life but am more so on DDO. The reason for that is that in real life, I care too much about what people think of me but on DDO, I don't care as much but am starting to care a lot more than I used to. That is the short version. If you want the long version, PM me and I'll tell you since I dislike talking about my real life in a place where anyone can access it.

On DDO I can talk about intelligent things without sounding like a know it all or seeming like I just want attention. So just about the only difference is that I tend to act more intelligent here.

Okay. i pmed you.. thanks for the answer.

We're anonymous on the internet so it's easier to deal with adverse opinions. But when you start to develop bonds with people, even though it's online, you want them to like you. Okay. I think people in general think about/ judge you way less than we might think.

I struggled with very similar issues for a long time. The only really way to get out of it is change your thinking patterns. Not that it's wrong to care, but caring too much can be a hindrance. We have to retrain the brain. Meditation helps.

It depends on the situation. I am generally shy in real life around people I don't know, but once you get me out of shell, I am basically the same.

I guess I agree with all of you who say you don't talk certain subjects as much.

I only talk about them with people who are close to me and/or who I sense will think a bit deeper.

But sometimes it surprises me how many (definitely not all) people are willing to go deeper if you engage them in an open, subtle, non-intrusive way.

I generally hang out with older people in real life so that I can learn from them O.o there are a lot of incredibly intelligent young people on here which seems much more difficult to find in the world out yonder..

You were a little bit like that here, were you not? At least, it seemed to be the case :)

Hell yes.

Why?

Because life, in general, sucks.

I'm much more social and talkative on here than I am in real life. Heck, I almost never talk IRL. I don't try to sound as smart or intelligent as I do here, even though I'm not all that smart xD, as smartness tends to be seen as arrogance where I am.

Which "persona" do you prefer?

I live in a small town in North Carolina, and it AMAZES me how close-minded people are around me. If it is not within the realm of what they believe in, then it is just plain stupid and just completely wrong to them. They don't give respect to other people if they believe in something different than they believe in.

My town is a MAJOR southern Baptist town. There's a Baptist church on what seems like every street corner. I remember in school we were learning about different religions and how they compared to each other. The other kids in the class were just bad mouthing them saying how stupid Muslims are and how stupid Hindus are because it's OBVIOUS that we, the great southern Baptists, are right about everything when it comes to religion. Give me a break. People deserve to be given respect for what they believe in. Sure, it's not the same as what you believe in, but let them believe in what they believe, don't go insulting them because you're "right" and everyone else is "wrong".

I've actually heard about students in my school getting mad at teachers for teaching things like evolution and the big bang theory. It seems like 90% of people in my town absolutely refuse to have any sort of an open mind...

The ignorance of people in my town astounds me.... so DDO is a very welcoming place where people can think openly and think so much deeper on all kinds of topics. Since joining I have really become a fan of this site! It's a very good change of pace from real life :p

Well, the hardcore rednecks do, but that's about it. Almost every single person in my town is completely against being gay though. Gay = going straight to hell for most people. It's sad really

Yeah, i feel your pain >_< Do you experience these kind of things mainly in school, or all over town? I think this is a general attitude of younger people because it deals with ignorance. Though people can change if you are patient with them... for the ones that you care about.

Mainly in school cuz that's where I interact with people the most. I make sure to not bring up topics that would lead to arguing with my friends. Don't get me wrong, not everyone is that close-minded. I have friends that don't judge and respect the beliefs of others. My girlfriend is good about being accepting of everybody too :) Just the vast majority is totally ignorant, and a lot of it is how they were raised. I just can't wait to graduate and head off to college where I'm sure people will be a lot more open-minded about stuff!!!

Well the Mexicans tended to keep to themselves, and the ones that didnt were ultra aggressive. It was like that in elementary school too, so of course most people disliked them. I only knew one black kid, and everyone liked him, but a good number of them would still say bad stuff about blacks in general, and freaked out when Obama got elected and we had a "negro in charge". Of course not EVERYONE was like that, no, but a good amount. And there was only one mixed racce kid I knew of, this girl who was half black, half mexican, and someone went up to her and said "I am SO sorry. If my parents did that to me, I would kill myself". It was incredibly rude. I'm glad I didnt go to highschool with these people.

I debate with my roommates daily. I'm relatively vocal about my views, but only if it's relevant. I don't just go around blurting political rhetoric randomly or preach on corners unprovoked.

I am kind of the same here. MY personality is similiar in real life. However the debate part is not.
I come here for three things.

1. Intellectual stimulization.
2. Social Networking (FAR better than facebook, as I have grown more fond of this community)
3. Gaming (mafia)

The only thing I find to be a problem in real life is that no ones understands me when I try to talk about anything in too broad of terms (kind of like thett). I tried to have an intellectual conversation with a fellow employee today, that turned out to be an utter fail.

It was kind of like:

ME: So what do you think of the concept of utilitarianism and how it's moral aspects apply to certain standards of the United States Government?

HIM: .... I have 7 dogs. Do you have any pets?

ME: *Mentally Facepalming in irritation*

I just feel like people get me more. Plus I love debating people, both in the forums and in formal debates. This site has changed many of my beliefs, and has helped me become a lot more open to different aspects and beliefs.

I try to fuse my personality in real life here on DDO, thus I do video debates, etc.

I am not too worried about privacy (honestly I doubt anyone here would rape and kill me, or could rape and kill me), and I consider a good majority of ya'll friends.

Have you seen that girl? She is out right beautiful. I don't know how much I would complain to being raped by someone like her... ;-)

Rules of Mafia

1. Mestari is never third party.
2. If Mestari claims an intricate and page long TP role, he's telling the truth.
3. Mestari always jointly wins with the town.
3b. If he doesn't he's mafia.
3c. If he was mafia you wouldn't suspect him in the first place.
4. If you lynch Mestari you will lose because he will be the third party Doctor or some other townie power role.
5. DP1 lynches are good.
6. The answer is always no.
