Do you act the same in real-life as you do online?

:iconbryzer74:

Yes, I'm curious if we're different people off the net, when we deal with humans and that. For starters, I'm almost the opposite of what I am online as, I'm a little reserved and don't really speak much. Rather docile in nature really although, I have been coming out of my shell more now which is a good thing.

So, how about you guys?

basically? i don't wind people up as much irl, but we're into joking in a way that centres around taking the piss out of each other around here.

I also pull horrible faces whenever someone get a camera out/

I try to be. It doesn’t always end up that way.

I’m more open about my interests and opinions on the Internet than I am IRL at least towards my family. I have been trying to change that but I hold very strong opinions and old habits die hard. But my personality is the same.

DEfiniteley not. I am much more introverted offline, and i don't go out or talk to people much. THere's just something about the internet that allows me to open up more I guess.

No. Very different.
I'm a lot more calm, reserved and to an extend, diplomatic. But shit that's just facade to avoid trouble.I get angry, and feelings just don't go away unless I rant online.

Actually, at this point I think I'm more out going in real life, but that's probably because I just became more active online recently. Hopefully, I'll gain more confidence online though!

I guess I'm more outspoken online, than I would be offline. But if after a while of talking to me offline, it's about the same I think. However I make more jokes about myself and situations offline than I do online.

That's an interesting question. ^^
Socially, I'm somewhat different from being online. I keep to myself 
more in real life, but when I'm on Deviant Art, I open up as a writer and artist. 

Most people in real life don't even know that I'm multi-talented. They just see me 
excel in certain areas when ever the situation calls for it. And frankly, I love the element of surprise. 
I can say, "well, I'll give it a shot..." And suddenly, I transform into this lively version of myself. XD
It happened recently at church service, when they called me over to pray on the microphone, and 
people were just blown away when I did Spiritual Warfare. I was usually the quiet guy. XD 
I've learned to step out of my comfort zone when ever I needed to. Hehe. Being modest just makes it
all the more dramatic. It's just more epic. 
Never a dull moment I always say. ^^ Hero Time

I'd say I'm better at communicating online because I have the option to edit before responding fully; you can't do that verbally without looking weird.

I realized that I mimick my online behaviour in reallife. I used to be rather reseved but online I am happy and bubbly and kinda outgoing and I noticed how over the years I started to mimick that behaviour.

Also I often use this emoji:

When the Deviation/Art/Upload is Just Right (icon) 

and recently I've been starting to use that in reallife too. :D

Generally. But it is situational, and it's harder to convey sarcasm through typing. Although I don't ramble quite as much either online. IRL I can get going and not shut up.

Pretty much the same.  I do write about things online that I don't talk about as often in real life.  That's mainly due to the audience and venue.  I doubt many talk at work the way they write on Deviantart for instance.
