It’s so you

Seems that if we’re left to ourselves and free to customise, our avatars reflect our personalities.

On the Internet, everybody knows you're a dog. That’s the research results of Dr. H. Onur Bodur of Concordia University and a former graduate student, Jean-Francois Belisle.

If we’re not intentionally attempting to deceive others, then the traits we choose for our avatars are closely linked to the sort of person we are inside. Which makes sense.

Can you really be yourself to other people – as you percieve that self to be – if they cannot see past the colour of your skin, your wheelchair, your affluence (or lack thereof) of clothing, your gender, and all the other impedimentae that more tend to obscure ourselves than they do define or reveal it?
