Identity Redux: Part 2 of The (un)reality of virtual life


Ah, back to our old friend Identity. Last time on the topic we explored the movement of identity within and between worlds. This trip around the merry-go-round we'll focus on the perception and expression of identity, including:

Perception: How I see myself
Projection: How I present myself to others
Conception: How others see me
Detection: How I think others seem me
Institutional: How official entities define me
Social: How social groups define me

What am I missing? Any better ways to slice it?

I think you've covered them all. This is fascinating; I'm really excited to see what everyone has to say.
