Are you you more OR less confident irl as you are here on Retrospring?

I'm more confident IRL because I have no choice. I don't have as much control over how much I participate. Once I'm in public it's all just Well I Guess We're Doing This.

I don't know what my perceived confidence level is on here but I feel that i'm about an 8/10 irl

What you read/see here is pretty much what I’m like in real life - good or bad. I’ve definitely gotten more confident as I’ve grown older though.

I have off days but I'm generally less chatty in person.

Never had "confidence". Does it taste good? I'll order it next time I go to a restaurant.

But seriously, when I write I can better organize my thoughts and express them more easily. IRL I usually have problems conveying my thoughts, especially in English. I took an English conversation class this quarter to put myself in a situation where I must speak. I think if I come out of my bubble and try to communicate with others, the problem with confidence will be gradually resolved. At least I hope it will.

I'm more articulate on here but that's the only difference

I turn into a giant ball of stress whenever the cashier at the supermarket asks me anything. (Mostly because my German sucks.)
