I don't know. I'm quite quiet in real life. I don't know if that's at all evident here.

More dickish and less likely to hide my more extreme political positions.

I express my political opinions much more openly on here. In real life, most people know I am a progressive but I usually don't talk about it as much. I am less hostile in real life as well.

In person I'm a bit less condescending, although the nature of conversations I have in real life more depends on the people I'm around. I have a group of "intellectual" friends and a group of "relaxed" friends; around the former I'll talk politics, foreign policy or philosophy. Around the "relaxed" friends, we just shoot the sh!t.

It's probably a fair statement to say though that -at least here- the rawest form of my personality surfaces (probably because I have less personal investment here then in actual social situations).

I think I'm pretty much the same. Though I don't know how much of a person's personality really comes through in text...

A good bit.

In day to day life though I'm not quite as straightforward usually unless I know someone well, and Usually argue with the person, or have had a couple beers.

I say things online. That's pretty much the only change, i am ridiculously quiet irl. I figure if i were to say as much irl as i do online, i'd only have one personality - not an online and offline one. So, much more of my personality comes across online.

Very little. I am much different online, than in person.
