Being Anonymous

Standard

It’s interesting to watch how people react differently to the same stimulus when administered anonymously, and when you do it as a known entity. It’s almost as if people have a preconceived notion of what you are going to do (when it might just be the diametric opposite of that!) and react in a predefined manner, and when you’re anonymous, the same action results in a completely different response, one that is (usually) more honest and unhindered than for the other case.

I guess it all just boils down to prejudice and expectation.
