    You're right, your generalization of chess players didn't deserve a response.

     

    Not quite personalities, but...

     

    Military:

    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.

    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...

    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 always thought of it as something similar to what you wrote, except that I thought of knights as ambush attackers, and pawns as skilled thieves which have to carry a large shield and a sword only because the aarmy doesn't have enough resources. When they get to the enemy camp, they would steal some equipment and take on another role.
