In the network we are very often faced with the posers. Social networks and chat world, especially free cam chat sites like chatroulette contributed to the emergence of new types of people who are trying to use someone else's identity. Someone does it for fun or pleasure and others to deceive other users. More often posers are harmless and can only irritate other users but sometimes people are really trying to steal someone else's identity, which is very unpleasant.
Few people want to encounter posers chatting where they meet more often. To protect yourself from bad communication you should learn to identify such category of people.
Know the enemy in face
It will be much more easier to protect yourself if you have good understanding: who the posers are and what they are doing. You will be able to accurately identify and not going to blame the normal people.
Search of attention
More often posers try to imitate some famous people. They do this in order of getting more attention to the person. This kind of mask behind which is lurk quite unfortunate in real life people. Outside chat this person may be victim of bullying or maybe an outcast, who suffers from depression. Imitation of famous and successful people is kind of psychological compensation.
One way to recognize this poseur is exploring his musical preferences. It is well known that such people often imitate musical taste or other specific niches of the people they represent. Some may pretend hippies or rockers and etc. It is enough to ask few questions about bands they supposedly love to see through them. Most of posers show their ignorance even when answering simple questions.
Another characteristic feature of posers is that they can too often be interested in your opinion. If you notice that other person is trying to learn your point of view on any subject too unnatural, maybe he wants to copy it.
If person is always trying to follow trends, even if they contradict each other, perhaps in front of you a poser. He can do all that is now considered as fashionable, even if from the outside it looks stupid.
False political views
Also posers are often artificial view of current events. It can actively comment on some important events of the country, trying to seem very knowledgeable, but on the part of those comments often look very different.
