    I can navigate most groupings of people. Anything larger than 5 tends to break up into smaller groups. I have no qualms at all to go into a party, lean against the wall and just stare at everybody. I get the most enjoyment in dealing with 1 on 1 or in a trio.

    I put 4. It's a big enough number to play some group games or something but small enough that everyone can talk together & get some good conversations going.

    One on one is primo. Anything above 4 tends to be more difficult to have quality conversation. Then, I would just rather a larger group, know that I am going to need to recharge after and have it be an actual activity.

    I can handle large amount of people, if they were quiet. Just need one loud person to make it uncomfortable for me. Usually a stand-up comedian, who likes to poke fun at people. If people are interesting I have no problem either, but eventually I burnout after a few hours and then I want to sleep and quiet time. But you will always get that obnoxious loud-mouth person. (When I'm drunk, I'm usually that person )

    If they are all friends, then it doesn't matter how many. Unless I'm doing something, rather than socializing, in which case 0 is preferable.

    I voted for 1.

    Since leaving school, I rarely seem to socialise in large groups and I tend to meet with friends individually.

    That is not to say that I don't feel comfortable socialising in groups. I feel comfortable enough in any sized group, however I find the one-to-one interaction more satisfying and engaging.

    I put up to 5. Less or equal to that is fine.

    More starts getting a bit....too much inputty for me and my head hurts. However it definitely depends on the people. Topic of talk I don't know about, it depends on my mood & what the topic is. Sometimes I'm far more interested than I would have suspected, other times I'm just not bothered.

    Yeah if I'm comfortable that's usually me.
