The Internet You
Is the internet you a more realistic representation of yourself or is it someone whom you pretend to be? Since we can’t see through the computer screen to interact with the internet you, would that push you to act as someone totally out of your character? For me, I tend to be more outspoken and speak my mind more bluntly since I don’t have to worry that I would offend a person who might be standing just right next to me. In real life, we tend to wear a mask to protect ourselves. Since there is already that screen protector between you and the others, do you then peel off layers and layers of your skin and reveal more about yourself? Or do you then pretend to be someone that you aren’t? Does that person who shows so much humidity behind the computer screen a real gentleman? Or is he just faking to be modest to earn your trust and respect?
