    So basically I speak more than one languages. English is my second language. Whenever I am talking in my first language I am really social and funny. But whenever I am speaking English I am a completely different person. My views about certain things are different aswell. Am I just overthinking this or is it possible?

    Well it's clearly possible if you're experiencing it. I reckon it's something psychological and too complex to give a simple answer to.

    What you have is a subconscious language barrier. In your native language you can be yourself but in English you can't due to deep down feeling not so confident with the second language.
