It's all in your head?
    #3403125 - 11/24/04 12:28 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

As I'm going though threads in the Pub, I kind of read out loud in my head.  Everyone has little quirks and exclamations and as I'm reading a post it's like I'm actually listening to a person talk at me. 

People who post in all small letters with terrible punctuation and no paragraph structure and never use bold, italics, caps or emoticons have less personality then a person who has colourful, thought out, well-structured posts.

So, since I am reading this all inside my head, perhaps my interpretations of some people are inaccurate due to my own nature.  As I read and infer my own tone of a post, I could be assuming that someone meant something in one particular tone....and they really meant another.

Also, my experiences with human beings are limited to the people who I have met and come across in my 22 years.  There are so many different kind of people out there who I have no idea of, kinds of people who I didn't even realize existed.

I have met many, many shroomerites.  Most of them are exactly who they seem to be.  I have also met people who have been so far from who they seem to be, that I was completely blown away by how wrong my perception of them was.  Maybe this makes me naive?  I think everyone is kind of naive in thier own way.  We are not all-knowing.

Many people on this board have taught me many different ways in which people live and how they are, and that is a wonderful thing!  But, I guess sometimes we all get lost inside our own heads.  Purposefully or not.

:blah: :blah: :blah:

I'm done.

I find myself judging people online based on sentence structure, punctuation, and grammar. I can't help it, its a knee jerk reaction kind of thing.

Awww. I like your post. It was cute. I can really relate to what your talking about as far as the challenge of presenting yourself with only typed words and little characters. I try to typ the way I speak, which can be hard when you have to make up spellings to give clues of accents in a sentence. I think its a good thing that your paying that much attention to personality and its translation to internet communication. You should try to do a study on the differences between peoples online and actual personalities. Could be an awesome thesis or something, or just a fun stoney project. rock on you bombastic cherry you :smile:

I suppose some people dont rate punctuation and grammar as all that important compared to what they're trying to say....  Fair enough, it also shows that maybe their being lazy, but its also unfair to judge someone on their writing ability. 

I think some people here have probably not got a high opinion of me due to these reasons, their loss if they choose to ignore :laugh:

I wonder how much of my personality comes across, I consider myself to be unusual, as do all my mates hehe.  In a good way :laugh:

I rarely use proper sentence structure, punctuation, or bold/italics in my posts.. It's not because I'm lazy, it's really because, as MovingTarget said, I don't think they're all that important on an internet message board (now if I was writing an essay, that'd be different). Of course, I'm using all of those things in this post, just so I don't piss anyone off. :wink:

Oh well. Maybe I'll try to type with a little more effort from now on!

The only time I have bad grammer/spelling errors is when:

1.) I'm in a hurry
2.) I'm sleepy
3.) I'm intoxicated on a substance of some sort  :stoned:

I know exactly what you mean...I do the same thing. 
Also, I agree, some people you form an opinion about online turn out being completely different, and some are exactly what you expect...but its funny how it usually one extreme or the other.  :smile:

I try to use proper grammar and punctuation most of the time, 3xc3p7 \/\/}{3|\| 1 5p33k 1337. Unfortunately, I often have a tendency to omit words, so I frequently have to go back and edit posts.

I'd just like to point out that the main element of my orginal post was about human perception, not spelling and grammer.

kthxbye

yeah id have to agree..
some ppl have been dead on of what i expected,
others have been a complete 180 of what i expected.
(from those i have met)
i do realize that, you have to hang out with
another shroomerite more than 1 time to get a feel on how they really are...

I'm also not trying to suggest that because a person uses little or no capitalization or punc, that they have no personality, they just just a less colourful personality.

Like jeans and a t-shirt compared to a hardcore punk or something. But just because someone is 'jeans and t-shirt' doesn't mean that they're boring.

There are all kinds of different t-shirts. I wear t-shirts. But sometimes I wear toe socks and gillette always tells me that if she is ever shopping for me, she'll go find the one thing that looks absoloutly rediculous, and I'll always love it.

But my favourite t-shirt is my sarsstock t-shirt.

And my favourite toe socks are my 'rock socks'

My favourite sense is nonsense.

i can see a pattern of what icons ppl use
to resemble how they feel...

      I like using punctuation and emoticons.  But I also tend to imagine a person's avatar is talking to me if I haven't seen a pic of them.  And  sometimes the avatar takes over a pic I may have seen.  So, like, right now, for instance, adrug is a talking fake-baked turkey.  And pants is like...some sort of mentally unstable/on the verge of cracking suit behind a desk screaming gibberish at employees (the pub). 

I'm a maniac/Maniac on-the-floor    :penis: :penis: :penis: :penis:

I think there is a whole online world that doesn't exist. The way people express themselves online is totally different then how they are.
