Someone asked me the other day (or maybe I was thinking about it, I can't remember!) why I use ATS?
I couldn't realy answer straight away, and everything came out as mumbles. I had a think about it though.
Personally I feel like Im learning the truth when reading topics on ATS. Not neceserily everything I read i take to be true, but I feel like at least
im reading more info than you would reading the same thing in the newspaper.
What I use the site mainly for however is for help. There is alot of knowledge here at ATS from a big range of people. I checked the demographics
(link at the bottom of the home page I think), and saw what a great range of people use the site, and am happy to say nearly all of you are very
I like to see people help people too. A few people stand out (AlwaysQuestion) being one, who always try to inform people about a range of topics, and
are always sincere in their posts and try and source information for people and i think that it's great!
I liek to socialise using the site as well. I always check up and read certain users posts and topics to see how their feeling, you can always pick up
if people seem happy or down and out in the way that they write their post. A day just dosn't seem complete unless i log in and join other like
minded people, especially after a long day mixing with people who arn't realy interested on some of your biggets passions.
So Enough About me, what about you?
I have read a few of the threads about personality types here, and we all seem to be majority the same (INFJ I Think), but I bet there are some people
who use the site for other things, such as just flexing their mind alittle bit or delibratly trying to teach somthing or prove somone wrong.
Ive read a few articles in New Scientist about people who uses forum sites and chat rooms alot, and they seem to indicate that 'we' are not socially
connecting enough, and it can have halmful consequences.
Personally i feel more socially connected using the site, is that a bad thing!?
