We are all friends here and of course we meet new once almost everyday. We like to share everything, within limits, of course. But now im a sitting here and wondering, even if we do not really know each other personally, what goes threw your mind when you respond to one of your friend's discussions. Do you also try and pitcure this person, no matter where they are? I try my utmost best to figure out, what kind of person this is. And i have to say, i wonder a lot. TATA.

When I answer any discussion I concentrate my mind on the discussion written here. I think nothing other than that. Anyone may be there but I answer on the basis of writing. I never mind the person behind the writing.

Yes, it is true, but don,t you ever think of what that person is feeling or thinking at that moment in a discussion? For me it is easier, to respond if i can get the feeling of that person. It is so much nicer. And we do want to help as much as we can. TATA.

I never think of the person behind. Because there is much more chance of getting wrong assumption . We can't even make right judgment on the person whom we can contact physically. It is very hard to get a person from their writing. Because I know may people who can write very attractively and goods views are there in their writing but as a person they are very bad. So I don't want to reach the person behind and just want read between the line and want to answer as good as possible.

Yeah, I fully agree with you Aaleexix. I only concentrate on the topic of discussion. I never think who behind the writing. It is a very good answer. Have a nice day for all in mylot. Happy mylotting! Best wishes,

I know in real life I do that with people I meet - try to figure them out. But I can physically seem them, their gestures, mannerisms - or hear the way they speak and the way they say things. Here, it's a bit harder as I don't get the whole picture of a person . . . some people write like they talk . . . others don't. And most people seem to stick to the discussions here, so it's really hard to "judge" what they're really like. I will say though, after a while, I do get to know the writing personalities of the myLot friends I see regularly . . . then I might try to picture more of the person as a person. I'm a complex person anyway, so it might be hard to figure me out period - hee hee.

hi saphrina, Its human nature to think a lot all the time.Yeah,we all mylot members do have discussions of all sort of topics.I,myself also wonder about other mylot member's characters,feelings & problems whenever i strike a discussion with them.Its just a way of the human to wonder a lot of things whenever they faced with a situation or person.When we wonder a lot,some people may called us daydreaming and i guessed it may be true afterall.

We can imagine the character (sorry, i think it is not correctly suitable word) r way of living through our answer, but our main aim is to earn money, BUT ALL THE TIME MONEY IS NOT THE CRITERION, sometimes our heart leads our mind. because our mind thinks about money(when we are in mylot), and our heart thinks about humanity...

I could I share some closer friendship to some of my friends here especially to those whom I send comments and responses with almost instantly.Doing that keeps the bond nearer and I feel comfortable talking to that person already.They are those whose responses makes me smile or even laugh. I do have them here and one of them is you...I hope you know that APRINA .lol

No, I just concentrate on that green-no picture avatar and I answer to it. It is more liberating without predisposed misconceptions. Sometimes by the way someone writes things or writes to me I may wonder and say "hey he/she sounds like 'blank'? Then I say.."nah.. that's too much coincidence..'blank' is probably watching tv right now, at work(can't be here chatting) putting the kid to sleep etc etc...

Hi saphrina, Gee, I never thought of that. I am more interested in what a person has to say and learn from that person. Looks don't matter to me. More often, looks can be deceiving. The avatar speaks more about the person. Do I look like a dog? But, from my avatar, one can tell that I am a dog lover.

No, my dear, it is not the looks, it is the way you pitcure this person. His or her state of mind. For me it is easier to answer or respond, in such a way. No offense, i don,t care who they are or what they look like, it is the person, themselves, that make me respond.

Whenever I respond to a discussion I always try my best to answer the topic accurately.. Because I always think that this person might need a good answer from any of the response from his post, he might use it in his day to day existence.. I might not know the person personally, but at least I have given him a useful insight that he can use in his life..

I ALWAYS do that lol! I really care when I speak to someone to understand me and feel me. So whenever I speak or discuss with someone online I have many thoughts about who he is, what he does for a living, does he know the things I know, is he better than me at some points, is he a nice person in real life etc etc... I can not really help it, I want to know which characteristics of his personality made him give such an answer (either it is good or not)

My point exactly. It is so much nicer to try and understand that person. It makes it easier to respond to their discussions. I try it and if someone doesn,t like it, they are more than welcome to say so. Enjoy. TATA.

Maybe you should try it. You do not ever have to meet this person. Try it, believe me, it is fun. It is like you can really understand that person. TATA.

I don't think of the person behind the writing, as has been said by someone else before. I figure everything they want us to know about them, they will put it in their post and let us figure things out from that. So it really shouldn't be necessary to have to picture them. Just think deeply and try to understand the text, and I think that's enough.
