It's rather disturbing when thinking someone was a great person, only to see their true dark colors eventually!
That's great advice, Tiff. Thanks.
I think special characters are difficult to judge, no matter what language we are dealing with.
That's very true, thanks!
Same here. I do trust a few here on Amirite.
Comparing the times I have been right and wrong (internet and outside the internet), I would say I'm generally good at it.
It's harder on the internet, though.
I agree, on the internet it's hard to judge someone without seeing their facial expressions....
Face, body and tone of the voice help a looooot.
They sure do.
Thanks Will. I feel as though I'm a good judge of character as well, I have made good judgments on quite a few people here on Amirite and they haven't proven me wrong. You're one of the great people here on Amirite, and that's a fact. lol
I am for the most part but I have been fooled by a few.
Same here, can't win them all, can we? lol
No we sure can't lol
Same with me.... I've had very long lasting friendships in reality with good people, but on line, we just never know. But I do trust some on here.
I judge when it's something obviously wrong
I do pretty good. It's harder to know for sure online - I mean I only know what the person tells me. In real life, more evidence can be found - pro and con, from multiple sources.
