Chances are, they already made personal judgements about you, and revealing personal information about yourself does nothing to change those judgements -- they will either decide you're lying or effortlessly slot you into a caricature.
99.9% of the time on this board, I avoid sharing any personal information at all. It's not me that's worthy of focus, anyway. I'm largely stupid and boring. It's the validity of my arguments that matter.
Could you post a picture of yourself and let us caption it? That would be fun.
