Not at all. You can't really portray personality through text.

Absolutely. What you see is what you get.

Bethesda needs to get their act together. They said that they aren't going to announce anything about it soon

I know, but Fallout 4 is exciting too... Morrowind is going to eat all the time I ever had

Hahaha. Do you think Fallout 4 will be good? I never played 3

3 was incredible, I just replayed it last month. New Vegas was a tad disappointing, but I think they learned a lot from it, so here's to hoping!

I'm pretty reserved, when it comes to controversial topics so that matches.. I'm much more energetic and hyper in person, which is hard to communicate over the web 😄

I'm very different, except unless you are one of my close friends, in which case there is little difference. I would never make such controversial comments with most people in "real life."

My beliefs are the same. My willingness to state those beliefs assertively is different. I don't like conflict, so only my close friends and family know how I feel about things irl.

Yes, with the caveat that Im more open on here, and honest about certain things, for example not being religious. My family doesnt know that and it sucks, always pressuring me to go to church and convert others.

You're more reserved here? Is it a big difference, or pretty minor? Just curious; you seem super chill from my conversations with you on here.

I'm not exactly sure how my personality translates on here, but I'm very extroverted, quite talkative, and I tend to both laugh and swear often.

Ahh, I'd say you seem fairly mild-mannered on here, so that's interesting to hear. Haha moment of honest: you'll not find a single curse word on here in any of my comments, but I actually swear a decent amount with people I know.

Jeninerd Hoth, AK
08/13/15 10:55 pm

It's very rare for me to swear here as well. But I actually do so quite often around my friends and family. I'm not reserved on SoH in regard to sharing details about myself, but I think my personality is a bit toned down.

Usually. I can either defend a position to the death (figuratively). I can make a smart ass remark. Or, I can decide that you aren't worth my time or effort. This happens in real life and on SOH.

Pretty much. I'm more open about some experiences here though, because I have *at least a sense* of anonymity.

I agree. I've definitely been more open on here than I would be in person. I'm pretty closed-off otherwise.

In a way. I never lie or embellish on here, but there are differences. In person, I'm much more outgoing and boisterous. I keep a lower profile here than in real life, which is a bit backwards.

It's OK. Blame autocorrect. 😉 I have gotten so much more understanding of spelling errors since I joined SoH because SoH is dominated by mobile devices.

The sad part is I turned off auto-correct years ago, it was too clumsy for me. All I can blame now is a lack of proofreading and typing too fast. #StillNotMyFault
