Does the name+avatar influence your behaviour towards that person on Y!A?!

Question: Does the name+avatar influence your behaviour towards that person on Y!A!?
I think most will deny that it dose, and insist that they judge a person purely based on their Q&As!. They're probably being truthful, however I can't help but feel that is must at least a little on a subconscious level!. Still I would suggest no one really take how people will perceive your avatar and screen-name into consideration when choosing them, it should be whatever you want it to be, it's your style and form of expression, and however it influences people whether it means that a cute avatar might make you seem, less intelligent and more gullible, or a darker one may make you seem less trustworthy even "meaner" and more intimidating, then you really are, it's insignificant in comparison to how you'll be judged by your actions, and the content of your Q&As!. !.!.!.!.If you choose, to bare the name and picture of a fictional villain however, there's a small chance that in a dispute with another Y!A user, it'll help them in making you out to be the "bad guy"!. :PWww@Enter-QA@Com

Yes and no!. Although I try to keep an open mind and not stereotype people into psychological profiles, I think that is what I do on a subconscious and sometimes conscious level when I look at the name and Avatar!. However, I try to always keep an open mind when reading answers!. I think it is the same as in real life - when you listen to a person, you want to always hear the message (at least I do), but appearances do matter and affect how the message is received!.Www@Enter-QA@Com

Not me - but it certainly does others!.

I answer quite a lot of Astronomy & Space q's (my pet passion) and, almost without exception, I'll get loads of thumbs-down!. And it's often fair to say that I'm the only person who's actually answered correctly!.

All because I'm perceived as being ugly & therefore stupid!.Www@Enter-QA@Com

I'd like to say it doesn't but I'd be lying!

For instance before I saw your avatar I thought you were a balding brunette man in his mid 30's who had possibly served in the army!. I thought you were a lot wiser then, no offense you still wiser then me!

And I've noticed my questions get more answers now that I have a real picture of me!.

Oh! yeah this is my second profile!.!.
The other ones titled Tree Hugger!.!.!.

EDIT: I've said to much already, and the dog was a cutie (=Www@Enter-QA@Com

No, not really I take a person seriously regarding to their answer!.
Therefor a person can call himself\herself jumping jelly beans for all I care, as long as their answers are not rude, offensive, or stupid!.
I mean look at my screen-name and avatar !?!? they're really silly and rather 'not creative' ^_^Www@Enter-QA@Com

No not at all!.!.!.!.

Oh wait a minute!.!.!.!.!.when a person says something dumb or stupid !.!.!.!.I'd look at his/her avatar!.!.!.!.!.and yes from that moment on I have impression ( bad or good ) with the avatar!.!.!.!.

Case in point : Amanda!.

You remember her avatar pix , pavlov !? she looked " ohhhh!.!.!.!.!.I have a brain !?"Www@Enter-QA@Com

I hate text speak on YA!. Leave it on the mobile!! Some silly names put me off!. Worse is the use of incorrect language or grammar!.Www@Enter-QA@Com

Yes, I think it does although I would rather it didn't!. That's why I use the silhouette avatar - I'm not sure what impression my name gives though!.Www@Enter-QA@Com

No never, I answer the question as posed!. But I often click on the avatar to look at the asker's profile!.Www@Enter-QA@Com

No not at all but I think that some people doesn't choose me for BA because my name's ''Ginny Potter''Www@Enter-QA@Com

Yes, I try to be a little more polite to the fairer sex!.Www@Enter-QA@Com
