What kind of drunk are you?

Asked by Marshmely (29points) May 22nd, 2011

In my experience, people seem to take on different personae when they are intoxicated. A few examples being:

The flirtatious drunk
The emotional drunk
The overly talkative/sociable drunk
The incoherent drunk

There are, of course, many types of drunks. Some are combinations of two or more. Which are you?

A comatose drunk. Alcohol has little impact on me except to put me to sleep. I don’t drink very often, but I do enjoy beer, bourbon in the winter, and gin and tonic in the summer. Occasionally white wine. But I’m just as happy with a glass of ice water and lemon.

Not much of one. Can’t remember the last time I was drunk.

KateTheGreat's avatar

The best kind. I’m a little ball of fun.

I’d say I am a flirtatious/talkative drunk. Mostly talkative since I’m not single anymore, though. I tend to become extremely interested in anything and everything and talk in depth about political issues, etc. I’m sure I have no idea what I’m talking about at the time.

I fluctuate between the flirtatious, emotional, or overly talkative drunk. At least I keep things interesting!

The calm drunk, flirtatious/manipulative drunk, and the revved up let’s go fight drunk.

Super duper flirtatious and creative. I have a tendency to start furiously writing poems or music or wanting to paint.

And I have a tendency to try and box/wrestle/lasso things.

incoherent drunk.

King_Pariah's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard you and I should totally hang out and box/wrestle. but if you try to lasso me, you’re in for a world of hurt. lol

Nowadays I am a recovering drunk. When I was an active drunk, I was a quiet lachrymose drunk who thought he was god’s gift to women. I used to get pretty maudlin.

JLeslie's avatar

I have only been drunk a few times. I am pretty sure I am flirtatious maybe a little stupid.

incendiary_dan's avatar

Silly, then sleepy. Then sleeping.

jrpowell's avatar

Sociable and a bit loud. I’m pretty good about knowing when it is time to go home. I have had my share of mornings where I knew I pissed off people and hoped they drank more than I did.

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard Writes good poems when he’s drunk. Hahahahaha.

tinyfaery's avatar

After 1, I’m silly.
After 2, I’m talkative and can get loud.
There is never a three. I’m such a lightweight.

TexasDude's avatar

@KatetheGreat, that’s right… you were there for one of them!

SuperMouse's avatar

Weepy, I am a weepy drunk. That is one of many reasons that I no longer drink.

shego's avatar

I get flirty and funny when I’m drunk.

mazingerz88's avatar

@shego Love drunk funny girls, flirty not that much. yeah right!

gailcalled's avatar

I’m a sober drunk.

DominicX's avatar

All of the above, really. The only thing I’m not is an angry/belligerent drunk.

I get giggly and goofy, I get incoherent and nothing short of retarded sometimes, I’m more flirty and sexual, sometimes I get emotional (positive emotions most of the time), etc. It’s just a whole bushel of fun. :)

I am a sad drunk. I also no longer drink more than one when with company.

Coloma's avatar

Just a magnification of my usual self.
Silly, humorous, talkative.
I’m not a big drinker, a few beers, wine, occasional bloody mary, never really get drunk, drunk…just enhanced. lol
I am not maudlin, aggressive or sloppy.
Infact, there is nothing worse than sloppy, stupid, drunk. Gah!

augustlan's avatar

Happy, relaxed, horny, talkative, silly, and burp-y.

OpryLeigh's avatar

Happy to begin with and then I get very sleepy.

ucme's avatar

Happy, despite stumbling around like a one legged donkey on a trampoline.

rts486's avatar

A quiet drunk.

Pele's avatar

Fabulously happy. I rarely drink, and when I do with buddles I get all happy-fab.

Berserker's avatar

Where I come from, each sits alone with his brew and sips alone.

no wonder you’re alla buncha grumps then

I get cheery and talkative a lot if I’m with people. Not really flirtatious, barely ever mean. Although that has happened a few times. Mostly I’m just a goof. But that was before booze became a part of my life. These days when I’m drunk, I get motivated about things a lot more than when I’m sober. It seems I do all my best thinking while all fucked. That’s probably not true, but it feels like it. I can often get rather…I’m looking for a word that means exaggerated self pity, I think it starts with a T, or at least has a T in it but I can’t member.
But yeah, that.

KateTheGreat's avatar

For the record, I would like to drink with @Symbeline before I die.

Berserker's avatar

@gailcalled Dude that is totally it. ...why the hell did I think there was a T in it? O_o

Best thinking my ass lol. Thanks. Damn word. Need to retain it.

Only138's avatar

I’m an accomplished drunk. Very funny, and talkative. Also very creative and energetic when I’m tanked. ;)

Facade's avatar

Happy, sexual, and uninhibited. I don’t drink that much though.

bookish1's avatar

I’m an overly sociable drunk after enough drinks… After too many, I am an overly emotive/depressed drunk.

King_Pariah's avatar

Found out that I’m also a bitter drunk
