What Cartoon Character Describes Your Social Media Personality?
On the internet, nobody can tell if you’re a dog, or a cat, or a super-human god. But your behavior on social networking sites can say a lot about who you are as a person.
Below are some popular, fictional characters in cartoons and comics. We find these characters interesting because we can relate their behavior to a person in our own life.
Here are some archetypes of Social Media behaviors that resemble the personality of popular cartoon or comic book characters. Sound like anyone you know? Or…does it sound like you?!
- You act entirely in your own self-interest and do whatever you want without apology.
- You bend people to your will because you are strong, powerful, and unable to listen to what others are saying.
- You are a brainy know-it-all who is self-concious about your social standing in the world.
- Rather than using your intelligence for good, you use it as a way to attack others and feel better about yourself.
Kenny from South Park
- You are incredibly hilarious and constantly have funny insights that make your friends laugh.
- However, your thoughts are garbled and incomprehensible to others.
- You are an astute observer of the world around you and a master cynic.
- Rather than speaking constructively, you tend to criticize others with words that are more appropriate as “thought bubbles” than actual speech.
Dr. Manhattan from Watchmen
- You are able to predict everything that will happen and know all there is to know about the world around you.
- But, your super-human ability makes it impossible to relate to typical human beings. You spend much of your time thinking, “What’s the point of all this?”
Beavis and Butthead
- You are interested in the same things as 15 year old boys: loud music, scantily clad females, and fart jokes.
- Rather than growing up, you embrace your immaturity and focus on entertaining those with the same childish interests as you.
Hobbes from Calvin and Hobbes
- You are the voice of reason and are able to make sense of the human condition because of your astute ability to see a larger perspective.
- However, those you associate yourself with are childish which makes others perceive you as imaginary or non-existent.
PLEASE NOTE: I am using these characters simply as fun examples meant to comment on the world around us. I am happy to remove any of them, simply send me an email to ben [(AT)] benphoster [(DOT)] com and I’ll pull it down quickly.
