This thread discusses alter egos and their implications.

Do you have an alter ego? If so describe it, aswell as your normal self.

Do you believe alter egos have a negative effect on the growth of a stable personality?

Do you think sometimes they can get out of hand?

What do you think creates them? eg overactive imagination, selfhate, ect

You do not have to answer all of these questions.


Also feel free to discuss literature(Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde), Movies (fight club, LOTR) and artwork.

My alter- ego is a guy named JohnnyHIV as opposed to my regular persona, JohnnyV.

He is vile and rude and extremely funny. Pretty much comes out when I'm with my band. He says shit that would make you piss, go blind and turn purple.

My alter-ego is Blunt Ashwater - the hard talking, bowl smoking, travelling journalist. He is different from my usual personality in that he is socially retarded, giggling incessantly at everything that is said. I transform after the first bong hit on a full moon. As for the implications, I have absolutely no idea, I'm not even sure I want to know...
#12
Oh ya I forgot about slim shady and buckethead! I like how slim shady's voice is different from eminem's it adds to the persona.
#13
I always tell my co-workers I'm working with my a lot more lazy and slower alter-ego.

It's not exactly an alter-ego, I'm just a lot more active when I'm not at my work.
#14
I have like...many different faces (metaphorical ones ) I put on in front of different people, I rarely have my "own" personality equipped so to speak.

No, because I'm not the God damn Batman.

Ever since buying that nun costume for Halloween, it's sort of become my Green Man (for anyone who watches It's Always Sunny). If I ever want to be sure I'll get a reaction, I bust out the Smoking Nun.
Listen to mah discs.

Myself - Calm, thoughtful, righteous, helping, generous, open minded and accepting of other peoples values and in a nut shell, I am a kind considerate friendly young man.

My alter ego - Is a racist bigot who hates change in his countries culture, swears a lot, only considers what he thinks, has strong political views that would eradicate most other races, sexualities and political mind sets. My alter ego is a mixture of, Eminem, Slim shady, Hitler, Stalin and someone who specifically tries to make people laugh by way of being harsh towards other people and also making fun of anyone who is unfortunate.


Do you believe alter egos have a negative effect on the growth of a stable personality?
Yes/No 50-50 some people make a living out of their alter egos

Do you think sometimes they can get out of hand?
yes

What do you think creates them? eg overactive imagination, selfhate, ect
Boredom, fun, depression, attention seeking, self social experimentation.


Self social experimentation is my reason.

After my parents were killed in a mugging i decided to fight crime and avenge the innocent... I became batma... god damn it, someone took that idea already didn't they?



AlterEdit:

Since that one didn't work, i became the nightman. This is my story/theme song:

Every night you come into my room and pin me down
With your strong arms you pin me down
And I try to fight you
You come inside me
And fill me up
And I become the Night Man

The normal self is Mohammad. He is a weak, pathetic and childlike Whom cant keep eye contact and always giggles about everything, he never stands up for himself. He always imagined himself as being a strong confident funny person. During a deep depression I became very delusion and imaginative and out of all his self hate the perfect him "money mo" was born. Things that are detrimental to money mos existence are drugs, alcohol, and women.

Do you believe alter egos have a negative effect on the growth of a stable personality?
Yes they can be because you are not developing a well rounded personality and taking care of your weaknesses, you just cover them up.
Do you think sometimes they can get out of hand?
Yes they can.
What do you think creates them? eg overactive imagination, selfhate, ect

For me it was self hate and an overactive imagination.

Also when Im on UG thats just mohammad talking, tbh all I do is troll and whine about my problems, I gotta fix that.

My alter ego is Michael Scarn, he's an FBI agent and arrests everyone at any given time.
I just need about $3.50

1. how i act in private
2. how i act in public
3. how i act around people i trust

i dont think these are alter egos, but they are all very different from one another.
#23
Aren't we all alter-egos? I mean, our internet personalities are our alter-egos. This allows us to pick and choose what aspects of ourselves that we want others to see, and we embellish those parts of us that we want to define our ideal selves. So yeah, I have an alter-ego, his name is I_hate_Kyle and he is UG's Disney fan.

I have an alter ego, but it only really shows when I eat a banana.
Now if you'll excuse me, it seems that General Blight is up to his old tricks again.
#26
Yes, I do. He's pretty much my exact opposite. I talk to myself/him a lot, with me playing both parts. Yes, I realize that's a highly abnormal behavior, but I realize that I'm not talking to anyone but myself, so I'm not crazy, just weird.
#27
1.) I have an alter-ego. It's basically an exxaggerated charicature of my manic self.
2.) Yes. I'm a royal f*ck-up.
3.) Yes. I'm often out of hand.
4.) All of the above, plus ego, boredom and drink.
#28
My alter ego's name is "Drez". She is the wannabe rockstar that everyone seems to like but has inside issues and sometimes can't be trusted.
-If you think it's over, you've got another thing coming-
#29
I don't think I do, but then again, sometimes when I wake up in the morning I have what looks like blood on my hands and I'm usually clenching some kind of sharp object.

VERY METAL!

Yes. Literally having an actual alter ego is out of hand IMO.

Self-hate really, people wishing they were someone else.

I am the Batman.


But seriously, I have no personality at home. That's mainly because my parents are where fun goes to die. They're not necessarily rude or mean people, they just have no concept of fun. They are absolutely no fun at all.
