How "you" are you?

We get to come up with names here. This place is a gethering for who share a fondness for Disney, yet we have a bit of anonymity.

How real are you here? I am me, though I do utilize my knowledge of how to google...and I am a bit more guarded (most of the time) here than I have been on other message boards. What you read/see from me..is 85% actual person.

Do you let your internet persona portray who you wish you were or are you "real"?

I mostly keep it real. Like everyone else (or so I am guessing), there are times when I unintentionally go a bit over the top in certain arguments/debates thanks to the anonymity of cyberspace. Other times I mitigate what I may otherwise say because I know some things aren't suitable for all audiences.

I try to be myself on the DIS. But I'm very shy IRL. I think I'm a lot nicer IRL too.

I am actually alot less aggressive on this board than I am in real life. Most of the time I don't get involved in debates or arguments here on the DIS. In real life, I am not as shy, usually.

I'm a real person

I too like to google--I never assume that just b/c someone posted a tidbit--that they have that knowledge in their head. I google for friends IRL, too.

Mostly I am real, but I tend to speak out more IRL. I don't like to get into debates here because by the time I have a reply it has been stated a few times or it veers off.
I like to read them though.

On The DIS, I'm much more outgoing; whereas IRL, I'm almost painfully shy.

I'm real, even use my real name. I don't get into some of the discussions I might like to on the DIS though, because I've already outed myself as a massage therapist at Saratoga Springs. As a CM, I definately keep my guard up

I try to be myself, but I think I come off as stiff and a little too serious. I've always had this problem with my writing. IRL I'm a chatterbox, and (I think) I have a good sense of humor.

Probably about 95% real. I tend to keep my mouth shut a bit more on here than in real life -- don't want to get banned you know!
