Pawns, knights, rooks, bishops are all are mindless, lobotomized slaves.

oh man ...and we wonder why chess players don't get girlfriends
I play chess to play chess. I do other things for "getting girlfriends."
You're right, your generalization of chess players didn't deserve a response.
Not quite personalities, but...
Pawns - Soldiers at the front line. Slowly pushes their way into enemy territory.
Knights - Grenade tossers. Hand tossing grenades at enemies within a radius.
Bishops - Snipers. Long ranged shots slipping past obstacles.
Rooks - Tanks. Rolls over and destroys things in its path.
Queen - Missile/air support. Strife away.
King - Control center defender. Stops things that gets too close.
Honinbo and Sunshiny I love your responses xD
Crackin up reading Hon's and Sun, I like how you view the wooden battlefield
As to those talking about chess and girlfriends ive as yet to snag one that way but the two one night stands the games netted me leave me optomistic for my fellow players -nevermind that it keeps my current bedmate entertained ;)
I don't ever remember getting together with a woman on a basis of chess. It may still happen and certainly be cute.
Being with a woman and then later doing chess together - of course this happened many many times... what can you do? It's part of who I am.
Breaking with a woman over chess? I've seen it happen to some other people. Guess they were a bit more obsessed about the game than even I am...
haha, id be lying if i said the fact my ex prefured checkers to chess didnt factor into the reasons for me ending it xD
pawns: weaklings who are willing to die for the greater good: almost like kamikaze fighters, except less destructive in general
rooks: drunken idiots who can pack a punch
knights: the type of cards player who can cheat easily at will, can tell good jokes
bishops: very accurate, assassins who will stop at nothing to see the opponent dead.
queen: A sprinter: very quick and fast who can deal the decisive blow, however it is too powerful for its own good.
king: the lazy fat king who always asks for fourths at dinner.
I like that, fourths at dinner xD
Point interest to all, why is like 3 out of 4 king descripts lasy? xD
This might be my favorite comment in this thread!
Rook - Out of the box thinker. Who said that castles can't move?
King - Arrogant. Thinks everything evolves around him.
Queen - Busy type. Always working.
Knight - Crazy idiot, Clown.
Bishop - Oppinionated and stubborn. Will stick to his colour. Can however sacrifice himself for the greater good.
Pawns - Joyfull bunch of morphers. Although can block your plans if you mistreat them.
