I tend to be yes. I do chime in on general chat (not trolling or anything, but asking how people's days are, chiming in on some off topic stuff, etc), always do drive by buffs. If some people are hanging around the entrace to a heroic i'll usually pst and ask if they want to group up. I'm not an expert by any means but I do like to make people feel welcome. I think a lot of people are scared to ask for a group, they may not know the mechanics of being a tank or a healer fully, may not be down with the terms, and a sa result are pretty shy. Somedays I do have my days where i just want to quest alone and not really talk too.

What sort of player are you? I'm interested in hearing about peoples "social" tendencies as opposed to playing ones

I talk some but prefer the "shut up and play" kind of way.

I'm here to play. No qualms about asking folks to group up for ops, and when it's done I always say "thanks for grouping", "it was fun", "good hunting", etc. After a WZ, if someone has done something phenomenal or kept my butt alive with good heals, I'll PM them to say "awesome job". But I don't spend much time at all chatting about non-game stuff, even with my guildies.

It depends on my mood. I usually chat aplenty in guildchat, partychat and on /General. However, sometimes I just don't feel like talking and like to be left alone, then I don't say a word. It's the main reason why I always have a character in MMOs that no one knows about, that will remain unguilded and doesn't do group quests and flashpoints and all that. It's my very special hermit char

I have only been playing for a few weeks so I was quiet for the most part. However, here lately I have been very outspoken in general chat. Sometimes that is a good thing if you are stupid that is a bad thing. Seems the longer I play the more I chat.

That describes me pretty much to a tee! How social I am (outside of guild, that is) depends on what character I am playing. Having never played a tank before, I avoid groups on my mid-level Juggernaut and have relegated him to being my "solo alt" and getting in my tanking fun by keeping Quinn from being mauled. But on my Scoundrel healer I am more relaxed about grouping 'cause I am quite familiar with the class and have played in groups quite a bit.

Basically, I play to have fun, and the potential for getting cursed at and insulted by random people makes me less social. I will chat and be nice in a party, though there is usually such filth and trolling in general chat lately that I don't talk in it (if I did, I might give into the urge to scold someone for being so crude and misogynistic, lol).
