Well now that I know she's a she - -erm ....can we vote for "other"? Knowing what little I do know, I'm thinking for vbn it's somebody less obvious/more creative - although if I had to guess one of the given options, I'd go with someone she's got a little bit of crush on (I think). :confused:

lol @ this thread :p

people keep thinking it's me, which is scary.

someone voted "Jennifer Capriati in 5 years" --> that really isn't very nice.

PS. I'm not telling :p

Why are you so anxious to find it out Insanity? :confused:
It must be her boyfriend or someone famous in her country. :cool:

this is really quite depressing - why does everyone think I'm a guy :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad: Really does nothing for my self esteem :p

look, i guess that just tells us that when a smart dude (or dudett) is posting, everyone automaticlly thinks its a dude (not a dudett), cuz most of the times dudes (not dudetts) are smarter, capish?

veryborednow
May 4th, 2002, 03:01 PM
riiiiiight. and that psychological theory is going to persuade me to tell you is it??

it's a psychological experiment. if people think that the avatar is me, will they be more likely to approach me and talk to me? The internet allows personality to take to the forefront of friendships - yet i find people who have never spoken to me in my 6 months on this board, have suddenly decided to because they think that avatar is me...

.. but it's not.

If it makes you feel any better, I didn't assume you were male or female until I knew for sure yesterday. I don't think your posts are "manly" or anything.

But your avatar is a little misleading. Interesting experiment. Did you do it on purpose or did you stumble into this after you posted your new avatar?

That has to be the
QUOTE of the WEEK!!!!

It puts this board back about 100 years.

Some people.....JEESH!

it has always been assumed i was male, since i first joined the board.
Even after my "I'm female, dammit" thread :p

But my idea came after ...

I've been thinking about this *yes, I have no life* and find it interesting that people are now approaching you to talk. I wonder if you'd used a picture like this one:

http://www.uglypeople.com/uglymen/section.images/up-men-00301.jpg

....if they'd still approach you? They must be attracted to the picture - - and your personality too because, as you say, the internet allows personality to take the lead. (Which means Mrs. Guga digs you woman - wink - wink!) OK - back to the point, maybe subconsciously people think if someone uses their own picture (or in your case, a picture they assume is you) vs., say, a Jennifer Capriati picture - that that person is more "open" to engaging on a more personal level??

(Now that my hangover is gone, my brain, reinvigorated by that downtime earlier today when all I used it for was to chew cold pizza and blankly stare at the tv, is now working overtime on this psychobabble BS. Sorry...)

I think people are approaching BECAUSE of the avatar as opposed to my personality. As I said, these people I have never spoken to before, and have often clashed with (as you said Mrs. Guga = Jen hater).
If I used the "ugly picture" I don't think people would. I admit, it's the reason I don't talk to jabbawocky, it makes me squirm looking at his avatar, and it's embarrassing to admit that - yeah i'm shallow :)
I think when people use players as avatars it definately hides the personality, because, yeah they're a fan, but so is everyone else on this board - players let you blend in unless it's a striking picture. So i agree with your second idea definately.

The picture I used, it looks sort of unofficialish (hopefully) which may/may not convince people that it's me.... People are going to be reading this, so they're not going to fall for it anymore ... oh well. Was fun while it lasted.

I think it's her boyfriend. :)

VBN, I always knew you were female. Your creativity made me assume you were a woman (or a gay man). :)

May 4th, 2002, 09:57 PM
*goes to look up jabbawocky's avatar*

I'm with ya on that "shallow" thing. I try not to be but there has to be something somewhat asthetically pleasing there.

And I picked a Jen picture on purpose for the "distancing" reason you mentioned. (R U a psychologist? :p:p:p)

veryborednow
May 4th, 2002, 10:04 PM
well ive had random jen avatars - but i get bored - i'll change this one when i get bored with it.

Bored is a re-accuring theme with me ;)

I do psychology at school :o

I have to say Jabberwocky's avatar is my absolute favorite. Every time I see it (which is not very often since I had to go look it up a few seconds ago) I start laughing. It is great.

Has anyone guessed who VBN's avatar is yet? I already know since I asked last week. He is so cute

Hum. Perhaps we need to review the fundamentals behind the concept of “being secretive”?

Sooooooooo how come SOME of us know but others <ahem!> don’t? Ugh. This dredges up traumatic memories of being the only kid in school without a decoder ring… :(

When I feel guilty:

- first, I admit I was wrong ( I thought you were a boy too);
- and second, I bring flowers :-)

Note to myself: "Never assume. Assumption is mother of all f*ck ups".


Lets do it again.
Hi,
My name is Eugene.
It is very nice to meet you VBN. :rolleyes:

Thank you Eugene.

My name is Romilly - but that can also be a boys name (just to confuse you)

I love your web site, and the flowers would smell even better if I didn't have hay fever :p
