In a study regarding personality features such as introversion regarding the satisfaction rates of using the internet, it was shown that on the internet, Introverts are more likely to show their "True self" (Due to anonymity, finding like minded people etc), whilst Extroverts are more likely to find similar satisfaction regarding "True self" offline. Because of this pattern, I suspect it is reasonable to conclude that the average internet user in social online environments will be more likely to be introverted rather than extroverted, because of this I suspect that behaviors associated with introversion will be more common in these social online environments.

Thoughts?

Introverts do most of their thinking internally. This is a social tactic to avoid becoming a target. Extroverts tend to breed more and take more risks. This is offset by their high mortality rate.
