The 12 types of people in every group of friends


So you might have a close knit group of friends, but it doesn’t mean that you’re short of characters. Friend groups tend to have people with different personalities and here they are… Which one are you?

1. The Party Animal
They LOVE to go out when you would love nothing more than a Chinese and Netflix. Not only this but they are also capable of staying out until 2am…what the hell?

2. The Pessimist
There is always something to give out about with them and even when you’re all having a good time, they’ll bring everyone down with their negativity. 

3. The Joker
Every friend group needs the comic relief, we all need the joker in the group. When things get a little heated they are always the one that will have a joke to lighten the mood. They perfectly sum up your friends sense of humour and are the perfect guest at a party.

4. The Scab
They never seem to have money on them even thought they just bought a new iPhone last week. You always have to bail them out when you’re ordering food and they promise that they will pay you back and never do. There’s one in every group so just make sure you’re not it.

5. The Absolute Mess
If the joker is the comic relief, the mess is the butt of every joke. They just don’t seem to get life and you always know that if things are going bad for you, it’s way worse for them. 

6. The Minder
They always seem to take care of everyone and are basically the parent of the group. They’ll look out for those that get too drunk and make sure that everyone get’s home safely. 

 7. The Chilled One
They just breeze through life and are too easy going for their own good. They are super chilled about everything and never have arguments with anyone. 

8. The Artistic One
They have more talent in their little finger than the rest of the group combined. Either they know how to play an instrument or they are amazing at drawing. They were the ones who forged the notes for the teachers in school. No one is quite sure where they got their talent from, but it’s good to have someone creative in the group.

9. The Future Executive
Their favourite show is Suits and they focus all of their energy on their career. They will definitely be the one who earns the most money out of your friend group at some stage. They can have their moments of stress and you don’t want to be on their bad side when they are in a bad mood, just try and stay out of the warpath and you should be fine.

10. The Smart One
They are incredibly smart and will always put everyone in the group to shame with their general knowledge. They are great to have at a pub quiz because they can answer questions from nearly every category. Find their weakness and never let them forget it. It’s really the only way with these guys.

11. The Not-So-Smart One
Definitely not the person you want at a table quiz and their strong suit is definitely not their wits. They are fun to be around and have a great personality, but you are always amazed at some of the stuff they still don’t know at their age.

12. The Drifter
You might see them for a while, but then out of nowhere you don’t see them for months. They have some business to attend to that no one ever asks about. They go out of town and no one bats an eye lid. They seem normal enough when you’re around them,  but you start to get a bit worried that they could be a serial killer or have a double life, like Clark Kent or Hannah Montana.
