Forget texting, WhatsApp group chats are the staple of society today. And just like the stereotypes at pre-drinks, lectures and other occasions, a group chat also encourages certain types of behaviour from people. But which one are you most like?
1. The waffler
You wake up in the morning to a message from them and for the rest of the day, you can guarantee that no matter when you check your phone, there will be some form of update from them. They literally never stop talking. Ever.
2. The ghost
They are always a laugh whenever the group meet up. However, no matter how interesting or important the convo is on WhatsApp, they never reply but they always read the messages. We’re trying to make plans here?!
3. The gossip
These guys are always up to date with what’s going on- from what happened to that couple on your course to what everyone got up to last Wednesday night. They literally know everything and will update the chat whenever they can with screenshots, pics and the latest news from campus.
4. The lurker
You have no idea why this person is even on the chat not only do they never reply but they never even read the messages either. But, somehow, they’re still there.
5. The planner
You may have mentioned in passing to them about doing something next weekend- big mistake. These keen lot are guaranteed to jump right on to any availability you have to plan the next get together, and they won’t stop until they make it happen.
6. The drunk
It’s 5 am and you’ve not long left each other from the night out. However, this one has decided to continue the antics and profess their love for everyone on the group chat. You’ve decided you’ll reply in the morning.
7. The meme spammer
They don’t really add much else to the conversation apart from the occasional meme. You won’t get an answer to your question, but you will get a meme about it.
8. The shade thrower
These guys are way worse than the group gossip. That’s because they know everything about everyone and they’re willing to throw you under the bus for the sake of a bit of entertainment.
9. The banterer
This is that friends that can’t help but crack a joke even at the most inappropriate of times.
These guys always need help with something, whether it’s relationship advice or help to decide what to wear. Either way, their first port of call is always the group chat.
11. The ranter
Their Netflix has stopped working, someone in their seminar is getting on their nerves, they can’t find anything to wear. No matter the type or scale of the issue they are guaranteed to turn to the group chat to make their feelings known.
12. The BFFs
They’re the closest pair out of everyone in the group and their bond is literally unbreakable. They will openly speak about people you don’t know and share ‘private jokes’ in the chat, and you know they will be speaking in their own chat about the group convo.
