    And goodness I don't want to sit around and talk about office politics, projects from work or the performance of some financial fund. It's bad enought to have to deal with those things, but if I'm on my own time and relaxing I want to forget about them.

    Really? Why?

    I just can't do small talk very well. Banter and jokes are okay to a point, but after some time it becomes wasteful because there is no "meat." It's like living on candy and sweets.

    Well, because you give off this "strong, self-confident" vibe I'd tend to associate with that group of people. Yes, I can understand wanting more substantial conversation after a certain point.

    Anyway... my theory is that the majority of the forum population consists of Casuals (with Craftsmen as a close second), if anyone is curious.

    I don't like small talk with strangers but I'll talk nonsense, banter and laugh with my closest friends, we engage in a lot of dark humor about life.

    For me:

    Casual
    Craftsman
    Elitist
    Roughtneck

    Though, I'm not cliquish as a matter of principle.

    And I dont like people who say about people that they do something, which makes them not to like people, which of course includes myself.

    I think, if you have to talk that way, you still havent grown up (what is no bad thing, noone was born grown up. But should be remembered)

    Craftsman. I like to get to know people through shared activity. Not group activity. Individuals with shared interest.

    I'd have to say the closest one is elitist for me, but w/o the competitive bit. I rather dislike elitism as a whole and don't care for projecting an image, so I don't really fit with any of the groups. That aspect of it wearies my bones. Can't there just be a small group that talks about interesting things for the sake of it and not worried about their careers? Is there a nerd group? I think I'd go for that one first. I like reading the description of the casual group, but I don't join in funny banter with people I don't know. I'm easily struck funny, but am not often the creator of funny (at least not on purpose).

    I am just hoping your need for grouping doesnt get you in distress some day. I hope you will find the one, who spares you the world before that

    I'm surprised that your choices almost mirrored mine.

    I'd agree that I'm not particuarly cliquish on purpose, though I admit to being clique-avoidant when it comes to Roughnecks. I end up keeping myself away from a lot of enjoyable and interesting people/activities, because I'm so ridiculously terrified of running into that particular clique and its values (due to bad experiences with them). The rest of them I can usually deal with or relate to on some level. I don't know why, exactly.
