Hmmm I see. There are certain things that also I am better at expressing in written form.
But what I'm saying is: written or not written, we're social.
Probably those who have difficulties expressing themselves in written form face the same problems when coming online.
As a matter of fact when I first came to an internet forum when I was about 15 years old I faced a lot of problems in the way I communicated.
People picked on me, banned me, kicked me from chats and forums for the same things that I would say in the same way in real life where nobody scolded me!
That's why somewhere else on this forum I asked how can I get my point across without being misinterpreted, without being called a spammer or [f]lamer.
So, what I'm saying is: perhaps we have different channels of communication, but we're all social.
In this precise moment we're doing public speaking! You are public speaking!
Actually we're speaking to hundreds more people than at a normal party because there are also many anonymous surfers who read this but never post a reply :P
At a party I can say all the BS I want without caring what others think since they're drunk anyway. What I say here can be read by numerous people!
In a certain sense, for me personally, an internet forum or a chat would cause more fear of public speaking than a party or even an audience.
I'm sure now people here will start to pick on me...
