Nope. What you see is what you get with me. Totally true to myself and others. I'm too "Grumpy Cat" loud and opinionated to let that stuff stop me from being Me. :XD:

I tend to answer with the the response they wanted to hear which in turn keeps me a neutral conversationalist just to avoid conflict and hatred. I feel too much sadness and regret to speak the way I should have been able to speak since I was born. Honestly and openly having my own opinions...but I have often come to observe that in this day and age it is better for people like me to never speak. It will only cause people frustration and confusion and sometimes great anger upon one who does not speak like them. But it also has come to my attention that other peoples opinions in conversations must always be heard and I have dedicated my life instead to understanding and agreeing with everyone's thoughts makes sense to do so.

Me? Not on putting a different personality, rather using a different approach to some people. =D

This is a sociology concept, that you are different person when you talk to your friends then when you come home.

Yup. Family expects you to act like them when you are around them. My dads family is humorous and easy-going, my moms family are more closed off and hide their emotions, and my friends are different than both sides of my family. So I find myself behaving differently with each group.

Different personalities, but not people.
The person depends a lot.
oxi moron me, calm bad ass me, pervy fun fun time.

Slightly different. It really depends if I want to please or not. <.<

I don't really put on a different personality when I talk to different people - it's just that some traits of my personality are amplified when I talk to certain people and reduced when I talk to others.. which sorta creates the illusion that I'm a different person, but it's still me. It's sorta like how a chameleon changes colors to blend in with its environment.

in jungian psychology, it describes everyone having different sides known as personas. its actually kind of healthy to have them as long as they all stay true to who you really are

Oh, yeah. I'm extremely respectful to people I view as worthy of such respect, I avoid those I despise (which the list is relatively few. It takes a lot to piss me off to the point I despise someone...) and depending on the group of lunatics I'm hanging out with at the time all depends on whether I stick to dry humor, sarcasm, or dark humor.

And I'm a very different person offline than online, though I've tried to change that... unfortunately I seem to be changing my online self more.... curses!

this is a VERY complicated quston to answer and can't be done with just a Yes or No
Aistar Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2012   General Artist
My family considers me shy and quiet. They don't think I say much at all.
Outside of the house is quite a different story however :lol:
Milasery Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I think I act different, but this doesn't mean my personality changes ... xD
decaffedgem Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm usaully supposed to be an outgoing, happy-go lucky friendly,
crazy person! But it all went down-hill, because of me having a bad experience of making friends a long time ago. Now today I’m just usually quiet, and shy. I stutter when I talk because I’m afraid to say something wrong. But when I’m around my cousins, that’s the only time I show my true personality. :(
budster248 Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Their only slight variants of the original.
DemonRaily Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2012
It's not that my personality is different, it's more the mannerism of speech and the amount of truthfulness than anything that changes. You could say that everyone sees the same face, just different amounts of it. I am happy and sad, loving and hateful, kind and cruel, but it is the same me, the same personality(quite fitting for a person that has both roots for god complex and inferiority complex at the same time). The only times I change completely is the instances when I am forced to deal with people I really hate yet I need to be tactful still, but it's quite clear that it is fake, not a different face, just me lying trough my teeth.

toooootally different
Hawnaw Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
everyone puts on new sides even when they talk to their different friends, its not a bad thing, it just means you've adapted to make being together easier. everyone puts on different faces in front of people because.. lets face, it, some things you just cant talk about in front of certain people.
Yaaju Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012
I'm just the same silly person to whoever I'm talking to. That's why my teacher scold me for times:iconheplz:
LadyMeru Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012  Student General Artist
When I first meet people I'm very shy and hard working....

But once I get comfortable I'm lazy and loud and random. :iconmingplz:
Artbeat6342 Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012
I would have to say Yes but that is not a trait i am proud of. It just happens. And its cool to be who you are. Lol :) To some people I am cool and confident and to some people I am shy and simple. But both the way I am nice !! :blushes: :aww: ;) lol :)
Ben3418 Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012
I said no cause on average im myself but sometimes im more respectful then other times like when im with my friends i just act where as when im working i think a bit before acting but im still myself
BattyBunnyCreations Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I only have one personality and its awesome.
Rikoei Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012  Student General Artist
i do have to say yes but no at the same time since if i am around people who treat me like shit i treat them like shit its simple logic xD
rklover13 Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, most people do. You just behave differently in different situations. I don't act the same on here, as I do with my family, as I do with friends I'm comfortable with, though it's not different personality, you just let different aspects show, in my opinion.
yuroran Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Well I am very very shy so I'm usually quiet, positive and (try to be) nice to strangers. To my friends I'm usually much more outgoing/random, crack jokes and even become sarcastic for the sake of lulz. To my family I'm just a tiny bitter bitch though. :|
xxConcreteRose Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Well it's not like it's on purpose ;-;
My personality just depends on my comfort!
Kikkiy Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012
I work at the local AZA accredited zoo as an educator, talking to the public from 9-5. That mask is far different than the one I normally wear. You'd be surprised how many of the people who talk for a job are quiet, shy people outside of the work place. While I am not afraid to talk to people, outside of my work I rarely start conversations with strangers as I do at work and I mostly keep to myself. Many of my coworkers are the exact same way :)
ShadowKnightSociety Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
No... I just have the optimistic and pesimistic sides of me :3
Novenari Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
I voted no. However, I do change a bit person to person. Some people I'm more excitable with, others I'm more silly or serious. I'm always basically the same, but just minor shifts person to person. It's basically based on comfort and trust.
Tobitoro Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012
I don't think he's talking about angry and calm, those are moods, he's talking about personality. I'm pretty sure everybody does it, the same way you are different around your family or friends, in or out of work etc.
NekateiSkyblaze Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012  Student General Artist
As a roleplayer, I sometimes switch between those personas and mine when I'm talking to someone I'm unfamiliar with. When I'm around my peers, I'm an unreserved, perverted smartass- the complete opposite of myself XD It really depends on who I'm around what personality I choose to bring out, although the smartass likes to hang around wherever I go -.-
MetalClockwork Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012
Some people just can't take the awesome, gotta tie it back a bit.
LeoHightower Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Kinda, it's just a slight change I think. People are individuals and all have different tastes and styles. Yes I have multiple personalityies I tend to put on
Keyshe54 Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
Kinda, it's just a slight change I think. People are individuals and all have different tastes and styles-- I try to match what works best with each. Like I am goofy and playful with those that appreciate it and those that are more serious so I am with. Then there are those that we both are hostel to one another XD

I had literally just woken from a dream in which I was explaining this
to a friend when I saw this poll. I am well aware that I am a social
chameleon, and don't deny it! Although, around friends, it is generally
very small differences. I think the only two significant changes in my
personality is if I'm trying to deal with someone who's elderly or in a
position of power over me. Especially if they could get me in lots of
trouble or I need to make a good impression. As a couple of examples:

If I had to go to see the principal in school, I would be all manners, and
play it 'cute.' Turn into a sweet, innocent, and mildly shy young person.
Because I've learned through experience that a surprising amount of
adults are huge suckers for that kind of behavior. I used to act like that
naturally, 'cause I was a purdy shy li'l kid, but now that I'm not like that...
I sometimes revert back purposefully, if I think it'll help my cause. c;

Also, if I'm with my mother I have a couple of things I more or less...
contain. I don't 'change' but I also don't let her see all the rowdy, pervy
sides there are to me, haha. BECAUSE IT'S MY MOM. If you've ever been
around someone you know very well when they're around their mother,
you'll notice a lot of people do something like this. The go into "mom" mode.
People had a tendency to present themselves to their mothers in a way
they feel is more like what their mother is used to, from when they were
growing up and living at home. OR SO I BELIEVE from what I've observed
of other people.

And I think most everyone has a couple of people they let go of their
inhibitions around. Like when you're sitting down watching Avengers with
your best friend and start squealing and having embarrassing fanboy
moments [that you would usually push down and contain around other
people] over RDJ and Chris Evans and Renner's muscly arms. :I Or do
stupid shit with, like... go skinny dipping in the middle of April.

I'm usually nicer to strangers. But most of that is because I work in customer service.
SoraStarChan Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012
Well, when you think about it most people end up having a different personality depending on where and who you're with. You have one with your family, one with your friends, one in public, one in danger, one with a lover, and one in private.
tailsobsessed Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012
the only difference i make is how vulgar my language is
Ponthion Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
It's just normal to take different "roles" in different situations/surroundings. So, yes.
LunarMew Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Kind of. My intentions are the same but my voice isn't.

When I talk to my close relatives my voice goes uncontrollably higher and I sound like an obnoxious 5 year old talking...but with a deep voice in a 21 year old's body. (doesn't help that I look underage so I end up looking like a stupid kid.) And the sad thing is I don't notice this. I only noticed when I recorded myself talking when I was testing out my camera. And man did I sound like someone who should be punched in the face.

When I talk to my friends or strangers I speak in a modest tone but my voice might go uncontrollably lower and people aren't able to hear me speak. It's annoying because people then keep telling me to speak louder. But then thing is I don't notice it. Again.

I don't know how the hell that happens.
Limey-Boy Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Huh, kinda the same here. I have the same personality and such but my voice and speaking style audibly change.

Not on purpouse : ( but I act different around people, mostly people that intimidate because I'm TOO shy....

I think almost everybody does, I curse less to my parents for example, try to be more decent and respectful in front of my religious aunt and I cower in fear in front of my dad in law. But in general I am always a calm person.
Slepomoriy Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012
yes, I have one for my parents and one for my friends.
Spoon-Fork Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012
I'm pretty standoff-ish when I first meet people, but if I become friends with a person I'm super nice. But if we become best friends we express our love by being jerks to one another.
