Just like when reading a novel we form an image of the people we are talking with from what we read. We form our judgments by what they say and their described behaviors. That is one thing that attracts me to having discussions on a forum like this. When you see someone, it is human nature to automatically prejudge them by there appearance. Here we don't have that appearance to judge by, and no eye contact to discover sincerity. Something I have done recently with an online aquaintance is share the many images I have pictured in my mind. We do not share our true appearance. I thought it might be fun, if anyone is interested, to share what images your mind has pictured of some of the people you have encountered here. Although I am just getting to know people, I will share with you some of the images or personality traits I have perceived from a few people I have encountered here.
Okay, here goes:
Iwilkiku - A person biting a donkey's bottom. Also, someone witty and humorous.
Crisaor - The name alone makes me think of a warrior clad in armor, bearing arms, a person of strength and integrity
Fayefaye - The name alone inspires an image of a pretty, gentle woman, her words reinforce this and show strength.
Shea - At first I thought Shea was male, but as I see more, I see a blooming flower searching for sunshine.
Amuse - Formerly Azmuse I believe. A woman of strength and integrity. Willing to share wisdom.
Atiguhya Padma - A man suffocating in his business suit by day, happy to rid of it when the work day ends, tired of the niceties and appropriateness required in business. Also humorous and witty.
bbq13 - A young, intellectual student searching for his niche in life, who also enjoys immensely barbequed food.
Hope you all perceive this as fun, that is all I'm trying to do. Sort of like a character study for a novel. Share your perceptions, if you like. :-))
