Do I like being remarkable?

I am a self-conscious person. I am sure my disability contributes to this. In Second Life my disability is invisible. It lends an anonymity I do not usually enjoy in the real world. But do I really enjoy it?

A large number of Second Life inhabitants choose to wear wild or glamorous outfits they wouldn’t dare wear in their everyday lives. I find myself drawn to really unremarkable low-key outfits. Is this because I want to blend into the background?

I wonder if it might be exactly the be "normal" in Second Life is to be extremely abnormal!
