What type of people do you tend to gravitate towards?

Assume you're in a new classroom. Nobody knows eachother. People are doing their own thing before the class begins. For example, what thing would a person be doing that would inspire you to start a conversation with them? Are there any personality traits that you see in other people that instantly make you want to be their friend? And so on and so forth.

Tbh... if I can smell some of the herb on you... or see you smoking it, then I'll be quick to start up a convo with you, aha. They ain't nothing I like more than making more stoner friends, aha.

But with that usually comes something else that I like. A relaxed attitude that shows they enjoy life. A smile here, a laugh there. Something that lets me know they are genuine, good natured people. I don't really like the rowdy crowd... but come on, they gotta be interesting! Able to have fun even when there isn't anything "fun" to do. I think tho, above all, would be a good sense of maturity and morality. Know what is right and wrong and when it is right wrong. If I notice such about you, then I will forever be your best friend.

Hey! Let's be frans! Stoners know stoners, and I've never met a fellow stoner who wasn't intensely amicable and willing to offer company. I give credit for all of my friendships outside of school to weed.

I avoid people I don't know. T: So I generally wouldn't talk to anyone unless they're friendly toward me and/or I've spent time around them.

If I see someone with a book I'll be more attracted to that person, but I'll know that, seeing as they're reading a book in a group of people, they probably don't want to socialize so I'll give them their space. I'll keep in mind that they're a reader so that, should some conversation happen to start for some reason, I'll know that I have a good chance of not being awkward with them and having something to talk about.

After everyone one in the room has done their "gravitating", then I'll gravitate towards whoever is left haha. I'm more of the reserved awkward type, so being with people who are like that probably works out best.

I tend to gravitate towards the people who seem or look cool to me.

I'd just stay where I am, draw on a piece of paper and ignore everybody, and wait for them to talk to me. I'm not the conversation starter. I usually let them talk to me first. I'm not picky on who I talk to.

Nope, just sit in the back corner and pop out my DS and start playing some Pokemon games. If anyone is interested in being my friend, they're welcome. If no one talks to me, oh well, whatever 8)

I don't talk much, but I actually like talking to people who are equally as dorky as me, or equally as gay as me. There's this girl in my class who's a total dyke, and I freaking love to strike up conversations with her because she's #1 pretty #2 plays hockey #3 interesting, ect ect. I also like to talk to the popular people sometimes because I'm a fairly sociable person when my parents aren't supervising me. (I'm much more funny and friendly)

I think I'm more attracted (relatively speaking) to people that seem more focused on something rather than the ones goofing off. or doing something unproductive.

I don't think I gravitate towards anyone in particular. I try to be fair and friendly to everyone, honestly. But I guess I am drawn more to people who try to make an effort to be genuinely friendly (not fake) in return.

This is really pathetic, but the personality trait I'd like to see is that person talking to me haha. If someone wants to talk to me then that's more than enough to get me to want to talk to them too.

Outside of that though, I think I'd gravitate toward people telling jokes or doing something nerdy like playing a 3DS.

People would likely talk to me first as in general I'm a shy person.

Nevertheless, the trait that'd make me WANT to be friends with them is to have fun or be funny. If they look like they're having fun or are funny, then ya I want to be friends with them :3

I don't care if the person is talking to me or not, but if I see someone talking a lot and in a group of people, I'll likely gravitate towards them. That've probably got something interesting to say which'll give some good grounds to start a conversation on.

Inversely though, and sorta weirdly I guess, if someone's not talking to anyone at but seems at least somewhat approachable, I'll talk to them too. They'd probably rather not be all on their own and it'd be an easy conversation for me to steer how I want to. Slightly manipulative side of me showing through there, haha.

I gravitate toward the people who seem similar to me, either personality wise or interest-wise if I happen to overhear their conversation (or their clothing announces it). For me, that means the people who are a bit more reserved and less rowdy, and those with big-eyed anime characters on their T-shirts lol

People who have a sense of humour.

Can't really put it any plainly than that. Enjoy life! Don't be so serious about things, and find time to smile, and you'll be fine~!

I gravitate towards people with standards similar to mine, so I'd probably go and make friends with the kid that is studying or making use of himself.

I never really initiate a conversation, actually. I may do something to try to get them to initiate one, but I never do it on my own. But the people that I likely want to talk to probably have something eccentric about them, like a strange hair color or dress style. Though I'm afraid I'll be rejected due to lack of "risks" on my body. No crazy hair or piercings...all the eccentric stuff about me is in the personality. lol Or if someone wears a shirt with video game characters or has some video game apparel, I'm likely to talk to them, if it's a common interest (not here for Call of Duty merch ok). And hot guys...I'd gravitate towards them if my gravitational pull didn't die when I look at them.

Oh, and I love the funny people. Usually once I feel comfortable in a classroom setting, I'm the "funny people" but I end up really wanting to talk to the funny person in class. I love making people laugh, and someone that does the same is great in my book.

Maybe that they dress properly might catch my eye, that they're nice would get me talking and share something in common would make me friends with someone xD
