People generally like people more if they see/meet them in person. But the opposite is true for me. People almost always become cold and condescending to me after they see me in person - when they were warm and friendly over email/messaging, before they ever saw me in person.

I find that people's online personas are quite similar to what they're like in person. There's never any real surprise. Your posts are you.

People's online content reflect how they're seen and treated IRL. If life is unfair to them IRL, that's reflected in how they feel, think, write, and post.

I can totally tell if people online are reasonably attractive and have good experience dating or being in relationships - even I don't see any pictures of them. Reasonably attractive, likeable people get the jobs and lives they deserve. That's reflected in their posts, messaging, etc.

I can't say I agree with you on that. I don't think it does really show what a person's like in real life. People can type away all they like on here but in real life they can be very different indeed. I'm sure if you met some of the people that appear confident (or at least very wordy) online (especially on here) - in real life they would be far less talkative or willing to express their views. I think a lot of people use places like his to express themselves, have little fights with each other etc - because they aren't able to in real life.

Everything is an illusion. I guess we are only fooling ourselves thinking too much about everything.

Talented people do a lot of things, but Geniuses do what they do best.
