Man is least himself when he talks in his own person.
Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.
Is that true? It made me think of xanga. How many of us are more ourselves online than we are in person? Is it easier to be honest when you cannot see the person you’re speaking to? Is it easier if the person doesn’t know you? Do you find yourself being nastier in writing than you would ever be in person? Or are you kinder when you take the time to type it out?
How intimidated are you by the expectations of people in your real life? Do you feel freed from those when you’re online? Or are you more comfortable talking face to face?
Just some mental meanderings that this quote evoked for me…What do YOU think?
