Open a virtual terminal with `ctrl + alt + f3`. Check whether you can login to the terminal with your username and password. If you can login, then the login screen (GDM) has some issue, which we will try to debug. To get out of the virtual terminal, press either `ctrl + alt + f1` or `ctrl + alt + f7`

@ArchismanPanigrahi I was logged into virtual terminal but still did this command and it worked. Command ran: `sudo su - someusername` . What about the gdm ?

It just confirms that the computer still recognizes the password. Let's wait for someone with more experience to answer how to fix it in GDM

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
