Do Fluther Jellies who share the same avatar think alike?

Asked by ETpro (34208 points ) January 12th, 2013

Do avatars either indicate or influence characteristics of a Fluther user’s personality? If so, how great is the effect. How closely do avatar sharing Jellies end up being alike?

The only avatar sharing jellies I know of are those who happen to wind up with the same default picture and never change it. If nothing else, this indicates that they share a lack of concern for their avatar.

I strongly considered stealing your avatar and just posting something extremely NSFW, but I wasn’t sure anyone would get it.

If anyone wants to steal my avatar and assume my identity be forewarned, I will track you down and force you to do my chores while I crack a bull whip over your head. In real life I am not just wandering around with a cat on my shoulder. lol

They don’t think alike but they do have the same effective tooth brushing techniques. : )

I dunno. Use my avatar, then tell me if you start to think like me!

Nope.

(Sounds like a New Age insult: “You avatar sharing jelly!”)

I doubt it, other than those crap jellyfish & the ugly cat, I can only remember one other instance of avatar simulation & that was when yarnageddon happened, blew over quickly though.

The cat avatar only has the power to make you lose your powers of perspicacity. So @zensky‘s comments don’t actually represent what he really thinks.

zensky's avatar

Cogito ergo sum.

wundayatta's avatar

Now you look far more intelligent.

<gives Wundy the middle finger>

wundayatta's avatar

That’s the catlike thing to do. The intelligent thing to do would be to borrow @zensky‘s avatar. Just saying.

I do recall feeling rather like Yarnlady during the yarn apocalypse.

SavoirFaire's avatar

We all felt like @YARNLADY during the yarnpocalypse. We were all one. One with the yarn; one with the squirrels.

ONE OF US. ONE OF US. ONE OF US.

Here’s a screenshot from the apex of the Yarnpocolypse, which occurred on or about April 23, 2011.

I defy anyone with a modicum of sanity, to find any non-gelatinous similarities between the victims whose avatars were consumed by YARNLADY’s omnivorous bunny picture! ;-o

Many of us adopted FutureMemory’s avatar one night. Freaked him out!! :D

I’ve never seen another Speedy here, or Blue Hand Jellyfish, so can’t say.

zensky's avatar

It’s def. time for another Yarnopolypse. Or even an Astro day. That was funny like hell. Hey – guys – how about a Wundy ass-day???

Let’s all be Wunday tomorrow, Monday at 1200 GMT.

1st RULE: You do not talk about AVATAR STEALING.
2nd RULE: You DO NOT talk about AVATAR STEALING.

@zensky I can’t do that. I’m a bitch, not an ass.

glacial's avatar

Ohhhh! I could have saved myself some confusion if I’d read this thread yesterday…

@Just sayin

The Yarnpocalypse was awesome.

Paradox25's avatar

I’m not so sure I would go as far as claiming similar personality types, but maybe a similar fatuation for that one certain thing in their avatar. I’ve seen several examples of vore fetish and sci-fi type avatars, and from reading their posts I’ve seen even those types of users have drastically different viewpoints and ways of expressing themselves from one another.
