In Mylot do you feel smarter in how you feel in reality?

smarter - more smarter

In short, where you feel better about yourself, where you can perform more than in real life or in Mylot? This question may be perceived as an easy question, or frivolous, but I believe that it is not so. Why do people use the Internet? Why do sites like Mylot, where people can perform, can tell what problems and knowledge and look and happenings of life. You happened, that in reality, to put the same question but nobody answered your question?And when you come online in this site, people were curious and have try say their opinion about what you have asked? There have been times when you had more fans here, in Mylot that you have in everyday life? Many times when you came on the internet you had better think about you, than you really? Where do you think is a better place to look for what you can do in everyday life or in Mylot?

But..I am stupid! :P Seriously now, I do feel smarter in real life and the only reason is that English is not my mother language. Other than that, I am a very very descriptive person (gestures,voices,yells etc) so here I feel kind of restricted! However, I always wanted to share my thoughts with lots of people, so myLot is the way to go!

Well you shouldn't worry at all. Most of people over here (from the little I am here!) are happy to try and understand you, and to have a conversation either you make some errors or not. I know what you mean. You want to express so many things, but you are not sure for the grammar or the vocabulary. I learned English myself, and then got my Proficiency Michigan's Degree and now I am studying at a UK University.If you wanna do it you can do it!Furthermore, always have an online dictionary open.It's much of a help. Other than that, I have a couple of friends (some same nationality with mine) that know much better English than I do, and I always ask for their advice if that or the other is correct or not! Do not hesitate to ask!!!It's called blending education, and it is VERY effective!

Hi, Ice! Things are pretty much the same for me in all aspects of my life. I enjoy my on-line friends as well as my "reality" friends. It's more comfortable at times to be on-line, because it can be at any time of the night or day, and I can be in any stage of comfort I please! I love the ability to meet people all over the world, whom I would never encounter anywhere else!

You're lucky you know what your native language is English, there is some difference, to speak English better or worse, like me....i speak English worse, so sometimes i feel so silly here...

Your English is just fine, my friend. Everyone understands whatever you write! I couldn't do anything in another language at all, so I'm envious of so many MyLotters who speak and write in a number of languages!

Hey icesmile! I am the same on mylot as I am in my everyday life! I am as real here as I am with my offline friends! I don't put up any pretenses here! What you see of me here is how I am with my offline friends! I am honest and to the point! My friends all know that! And there are times when I get into arguments with my offline friends. I don't get into arguments here so I guess I do tone down a bit for the Internet! But, basically I say it like it is! In fact, sometimes I get into even more personal stuff on here then I can believe! But, that is just how I am! My friends know that about me both here and offline! I always speak from the heart and gut! I am smart and I know it! I am basically the type of person who loves to help others so I will go above and beyond for my mylot friends and my friends in general!

Hi opal, is great if you can be same here and in real life too. But sometimes it is language barrier can in a real shame dose can here people can say what you're thinking; I am sure who is lying here lie in the real too and who is wrong here is in real too, and who is good and nice person is in reality and here too

Well I have more time to think up a response here. As in real life, often times, I only have a few seconds to think about something and it tends to come across like I might not know what I am talking about on occasion. There is more of a freedom to take a breath before I respond. Actually piece together my thoughts and figure out how to best formulate a response instead of just randomly blurting out a response. So, really, I do feel a bit smarter on MyLot then in real life. Just because of the fact that I have that extra time to compose myself. I can always backtrack and think before I post. In real life, there is no backspace button. That is the key reason why I think I come across as a bit smarter on MyLot as opposed to real life.

If in real life, it is not English your native language, you're right, there can feel stupid than we actually are, if your native language is English, of course there can be more clever, because you have time to think, as you response

So in reality you are as well present yourself in Mylot, nor clever, nor ignorant, Not often that you feel safer on the Internet than you actually are? s not it the Internet, or mylot, because we are now here, makes us feel differently than they actually are? what do you think?

The internet in general is a place where you can project yourself any way you like, show your strengths and weaknesses, or only just your strengths. It's easier for me to talk to people online because I can think of what I want to say first. I don't get blindsided by unexpected remarks. I guess there's good and bad in that...
