(2) Do you have different personalities depending on the language you are speaking?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A recent quick poll asked, "Do you have different personalities depending on the language you are speaking?" Around 30% thought so, with just as many saying nay and a slightly higher number admitting that they had not noticed one way or the other. The discussion surrounding this question brought up some interesting aspects of speaking more than one language.
