    follow up to AVATARS thread

    a few days ago someone started a thread: what does your avatar mean, or something like that. Well, today I stumbled upon a site that actually made research partaining that question...can you believe it? anyways, I haven't even begun reading it, but I'm posting this quote that cut my eye:

    http://www.rider.edu/~suler/psycyber/psyav.html

    narcissistic - themes of power, status, perfection, grandiosity; draws for admiration and praise; feelings of being "special" and "privileged"

    schizoid - themes of interpersonal detachment and indifference, perhaps combined with evidence of abstract or intellectual thinking; little evidence of warmth and tenderness; the "loner" themes

    paranoid - distrust, isolation, hypervigilance, blaming or finding fault with others; cold, humorless, argumentative characteristics

    depressive - gloom, darkness, loss, low self-esteeem

    manic - energtic, grandiose, impulsive

    masochistic - self-destructive, themes revolving around the "bad self" or "woe is me"

    obsessive/compulsive - seriouis, formal; themes of control and perfection; shows evidence of a concern about details and rules

    psychopathic - antisocial, violates rules; little evidence of shame or guilt; takes advantage of others; possible superficial friendliness or charm

    histrionic - attention-seeking and seductive in flavor, dramatic, emotional, vain; themes involving dependency

    schizotypal - themes of being aloof, indifferent; evidence of magical thinking or superstitious beliefs; peculiar characteristics
    i guess mine would represent schizoid? hehe
