An avatar has become our face, the one we allow people to see as we travel the world via the computer. What the avatar says about you and others like you is something we don’t think of when we place that thumb print size picture on our pages. Here are some personality types that go along with the avatars that people select to display.
The straight forward head shot avatar: This is the more professional looking picture, with head and shoulders neatly squared off to fit the frame.
*You are the traditionalist in most aspects of the word. You are not making a statement about who you are, just here I am. You have the most stability out of your group of friends and the one that people go to when they need a favor. You take your work seriously, and are held in high thoughts among your co-workers and boss. You are methodical when it comes to doing things, never over doing or leaving things under done. Your partner in life will be someone who is an achiever and your best friend. You are the neighbor with the yard that needs mowing more often than not, while you spend your weekends helping a friend move. Leisure time for you is getting some neglected work completed. Discovery Channel, History Channel with an occasional joint over to the weather channel is most likely your television viewing habits. CNN is a favorite to tune into while you are distracted with other things, such as reading the paper.
The face that is partially hidden avatar: This type of picture has your face only partially shown in the frame or it is obstructed by an object.
*You are an interesting one, with many hidden secrets. The secrets are not necessarily bad; they can be great achievements that are kept hidden by your modesty. You like to leave people guessing, and life would not be as stimulating to you without a little mystery. You are a real team player and at work, even after doing a solo job that presents with good results, you extend the credit to your co-workers. Unfortunately, this has sometimes left you vulnerable for people to take advantage of your generosity. You fix this by severing the relationship by quietly backing away from someone, never to return to the way things once were. In the end, it is there loss because your friendship is valuable. You know and practice the meaning of a true friend. Your partner is an open book; you spend too much time being elusive to expend any energy trying to figure someone else out. You are a care taker and your life mate will want for nothing. Mystery and exploring are the type of shows you enjoy on TV. You watch the local news at a set time of day.
The face that is at an angle avatar: This is the face that is in the frame, but held to one side or looking down or up.
*This posed position says that you put your best side forward for people to see. You are the type of person that can mold yourself into most any environment, a chameleon of sorts. This has worked well for you and you are able to be many things to many people. Fitting in is important to you, not just to be liked, but to experience things as others do. Many actors are angle posers. You have reeled in every job you have applied for, even if you have been the candidate with less experience. You are the person most likely to have many different high paying careers before going out on your own. Success comes in waves for you, which is the way you like it. You work hard to hit goals and once completed, you will move on to something completely different. You have many acquaintances that come from every life style imaginable. Your perfect mate is flashy, not necessarily in appearance, but in character and personality. You need to be with the life of the party and have a tendency towards people who have an under current of a dark side. Your viewing habits consist of many old black and white movies, bad boy shows and things that are unexplained.
The full body pose avatar: The person who is pictured from head to toe, or a good majority of the body is in the frame.
*You have nothing to hide and you are out there for everyone to meet. Outgoing, sense of humor and friendly is how your friends would best describe you if asked. You have the same group of friends that you did in high school and there are many. You travel in groups on vacation, sports events and with any other activity you partake in. Being the life of the party sometimes puts demands on you to entertain when things get dull, you do not mind because you are use to being the center of attention on the outside. At home you like your space, which can be confusing for your other half. You are a leader and if you are not in a supervising position at work, you are in line to be. Last minute and under pressure is when you do your best work. You give your job your all when you are there, but once you go home for the day- it is your time. You have amazed more than one person with your ability to problem solve, and people come to you for advice for this reason. Your mate is quiet and unassuming when in public, but at home they are a different person. You can have the lime light in public, but at home the roles do an about face. You tend to be drawn to mates that are a bit high maintenance, and you fill their needs by sometimes leaving yours by the wayside. Sports, reality TV, and Fox News is most likely what is tuned in on your set. Love stories are the favorite for the women in this category with Action flicks being the favorite of the men.
Your Children’s Picture avatar: any picture of your children with, or with out you in the frame.
*You are proud of your accomplishments and being a parent is number one on that list. This is your world and that is what you are saying to everyone. This means that you have settled down in your stage of life with no regrets. You are responsible and have definite goals and views on life that you work to fulfill. You are busy and many of your old friends have been replaced with new ones that have more in common with your time in life. People who once knew you as carefree, spontaneous, and “full of hell”, are surprised by the new you, even the change in your looks. Your hair style and clothes have come around to the comfortable way of life. Where you once put your all into work and activities, it now is into raising a family. You are overachieving in this aspect as you are most likely on the PTO board, soccer or baseball coach, and probably know the title of every children’s book in the library. You have left much of you behind to become the super parent. This is how you see yourself today, and that is just fine by you. Your partner is involved with the kids too, but because you have taken the drivers seat in this role, they have the extra time that you don’t to spend doing something for just them. This can secretly bother you at times, but you quickly bounce back. You of course are watching everything “kids” on TV. How to raise them, how to keep them occupied with crafts, and how others are parenting. Late night talk shows are about it for you for adult entertainment with your time schedule, with possibly the tail end of the news being viewed a few nights a week.
Your pet or animal avatar:
*You are the defender of the defenseless and are always there to help the under dog, (no pun attended). Your love for animals says that things run deeper for you than most people, meaning you are most likely ya worrier. Not being able to control things makes you uncomfortable. You are polite to authority, but see no real need for many of the rules that you come across during your daily activities. You are down to earth and probably someone that is a very healthy eater. You are a care taker of friends and family and you are the first to spot a need and supply it. You suffer in silence and always put others needs before your own. You are a true friend and the people around you value this. You are considered knowledgeable in many subjects and are often called upon to settle arguments. You see people as they really are and steer away from the ones you consider harmful. Your mate is someone who enjoys your caretaking and is someone that needs to be taken care of as far as reassurance and pep talks. Too many depend on you which can leave you spent with little time for yourself. You are someone that people will stay in touch with for many years after leaving your place of work, or moving. A friend for life is how you are seen. You do not watch shows that depict animals in deplorable conditions, it upsets you too much. You watch very little TV and would rather do research or read a good book. You do tune into shows about history, geography, and exploring once in a while.
The scenery or location avatar: This is a picture of a place or scenery.
*You are a dreamer and always want to be somewhere you are not. People would say you have a “gasoline heart”, always on the go. You love to travel and love to explore. You also have a longing about you as if you have not found what it is you were put here on this earth to do. This is why you keep going and going; with out realizing it, your travels are part of this search. You are a loner, most of the time, but you do have many acquaintances and enjoy short social engagements. A walk on the beach alone on a fall day is your idea of paradise. You live in comfort with your thoughts and that is company enough for you. You stand back and take things in, feeling your way before joining in on conversation. You are a person of few words, but what you have to say people take in as important. Your mate needs to be very much the same, allowing you the space of almost a single person. Not to live or go places alone, but to be with your thoughts alone. Nostalgic movies are what you enjoy best, the ones that depict life in a slower and simpler day. You have often had the feeling that your last life was in the days of black and white movies because when you watch them, you get a feeling of missing them, like you would a deceased loved one. Intellectually you are way above others and seldom let that known. You just know there is something you are missing and your search will not stop until you find it.
The cartoon that looks like you avatar: the face that is similar to your own but down in the cartoon manner.
*You are too many things to pin you down in just a few sentences, but I will give it a try. You are secure with who you are and you do not need to put the real you out there to prove this. You care about your looks and probably spend more time than most primping before leaving the house. You are the person with many shoes and accessories. You are a part of a big social network and spend many hours texting and talking with others. You were the “popular” one in high school leaving a trail of broken young hearts. If you are single, you are out almost every night of the week and for those of you that are attached; you still have a weekly night out with friends no matter what. You are probably the only child, or the baby of the family. Your mate needs to be very patient and attentive, because you are high maintenance, but you like that about yourself and others do to. It is not that people see you as selfish, it is more about the security you have about being yourself. You are envied by many, again in a good way where people want to be your friend and spend time with you. You are scattered and often go from one thing to another without finishing the task, you most likely have a stack of unfinished work on your desk, or as homework if still in school. Your bedroom can be a shambles with clothes all over the place, but you will still take the time out to rearrange your make up or ties. You watch game reality shows, mostly ones where there is a competition and a winner eventually arises. News is not important to you, but you will watch it if it has to do with a celebrity. You love the warmer weather, because the cold hampers your social life.
The cartoon avatar of a character from the Simpson’s, Betty Boop, or any recognized cartoon character avatar:This can be any recognizable character from the cartoon world.
*You are still just breaking out in the world and feeling your way. You are not sure of what you want the world to see you as, so you pick something popular and go with that. The character you selected gives you a wall to protect yourself before having to reveal the real you. This is just a precaution and eventually you will break the wall away. You have just gone through a life change, whether it be a career, partner, or being out on your own for the first time. You want things to be different this time. You are sensitive and your feelings get hurt very easily, but you try not to let others know this. You take on the work of others at your job, and you often are not recognized for this. People have told you that you are attractive, but you cannot see this in yourself. You will make the best mate for a truly deserving significant other, because you will be loyal, attentive, and true. You are not concerned with what your mate looks like as much as what they are like as a person. You watch almost any type of television show, all depending upon your emotions at the time you sit down to watch it. Happiness to you is security, nothing more or less and although it would be nice to have a ton of money, your goal is to just make enough to pay the bills you have.
The, object, logo, or unassuming avatar: Any type of avatar that is not showing a person or a cartoon of a person.
*You are someone who does not have time to fuss and the work you are doing, or what you have to say is more important than how you appear to the world. Of course there are differences in avatars if they are depicting certain object, the person with a gun avatar is more likely different then the one with a bowl of flowers. Unless you are making a statement with the avatar picture you chose, then you fall under this category. Down to business and no fussing is your motto. You have a mission and what ever the mission may be, there is nothing else you will let get in the way. You are a thinker, an inventor, and you will come up with a lot of “first times”. You will be the first to get a job done in an unconventional way, by just staying under the radar of the rules. You find loop holes and go with it until someone puts a rule in place to reel you back in. Life is short and you want to suck up all the technology, get in on the bottom floor, and pave new ways for the experience. Although rules are fine, and you abide by them, you tend to have a different translation for the rules than most. You will not hurt feelings intentionally, but you will not let them get in your way. Your mate is someone that finds you fascinating, and gets a kick out of they way you think. You have had thoughts for inventions since you could unscrew a bottle top, and there are many left in draws, the basement and rolling around in the trunk of your car. You are the most creative out of all the avatar types and television shows do not entice you unless it is teaching you something new.
