On every WhatsApp group different personalities emerge.
People create WhatsApp groups to achieve a certain goal within a certain time frame or to be in constant communication for a particular reason. It’s interesting because in as much as we would all like to avoid groups they do come in handy especially in circumstances where people are in different geographical locations.
1. The ones who forward all those Godly threatening messages
It’s always very disturbing when a full grown adult sends such messages. These messages claim that if you don’t forward the “Jesus loves you” messages to 10 people then you will surely die or you’ll have 7 years of bad luck, now these type of threatening messages are the reasons why some people think Christianity is a scam.
2. The “ghost audience”
These are the people who never say anything but funny enough they read everything and when you meet them face to face they’ll remind you of the time you invited people over for lunch on the group 9 months ago. But did they say anything? They most certainly didn’t because they are the ghost audience, the other half the ghost audience are the ones who muted the group from day 1 and never know what goes on in the group.
3. The ones who are there to oppose everything
These are the ones who are there to start arguments and pick on people. It is as if they have veto power. When the group decides on something especially when they are offline, they demand who made such decisions as if they own the group. They never really say anything important but because they always feel the need to say something their messages must be there.
4. The encouraging ones
These are the ones that are forever positive and keep everyone on track. They send positive messages in the morning, they check up on everyone even when people ignore their encouraging messages they are still very persistent.
5. The “hey people are quiet” people
These type usually want people to be interactive and every once in a while they ask questions like “where are people?” however, although they ask people where they are they also leave people hanging and disappear after that then reappear again at some point.
6. The bossy type
The bossy types are very common in academic groups, they are the ones who will ask where people are, when people are submitting assignments and remind people that you’re working with deadlines.
7. The one who sends jobs
This one is very helpful because he/she sends job notifications every once in a while, you wonder if they have a bureau somewhere that just gives them job alerts.
8. The two or three people who are very active
There are always two or three people who start random topics and continuously chat for a while, when you wake up you’re more likely to find their very many chats.
9. The one who reminds everyone what the objective of the group was
There’s always that one person who tells people to stop idle chatting or sending memes and remember the main objective of the group, they can be annoying but they really do have a point.
