Do you judge people by their avatar?
February 10, 2007 10:50am CST
I admit, I have seen some very interesting avatars on this site. Some I might even consider 'scary'. Ok, so maybe judge isn't the right word. But it does make me think what part of that person does the avatar represent? What does it say about them? Do you think that too.

I wouldn't say judge, but I do think that whatever image they have, I do have to think that represents some of their personality - their interests, their tastes, etc. So I do think the avatar selection does give at least some impression of what the person is like.

I don't nesecarily judge them by their avatar ..I think it tells alittle about their personality ina way ..but I have seen some very ugly,cute,sad,awesome and funny avatars...I think its great that we can choose to use an avatar if we like ...I think people also tend to pick their avatar depending on how they were feeling that day too ..a lot od reasons behind them all ...but its fun to see all the different ones...

I don't judge people by their avators but i know people add me because of mine as it has become a well known fact that mine is actually a picture of me and nearly all the people to add me are guys. I personally add them all yes but if i am browsing through i add people because of their intelect and not because of their picture... Sometimes I add people with wierd avators but i don't add them because their avator is wierd lol I add them because i have read their discussions or replies and would love them to reply to mine. They seem to be very wise etc and their opinion is one i can respect. I do see some avators that are 'scary' too though and it does make me think if they have that to represent them what are they actually like but it doesnt stop me from adding them lol
