I have to go for the playful/mischievous, since I am one of them. Not that you could tell in the Giant's Club, as I tend to behave 96% of the time.

Playful/Mischievious.

Go figure!

I chose this one because it implies a level of intelligence that isn't necessarily obvious in the Aggressive or Passive choices.

Good point, Sue. It doesn't take much smarts to be passive or even agressive.

Well, I can't stand agression, and playful/mischeivous is well and good, but it tends to result in innocent people getting hurt or worse, so I went with passive/friendly, though one can be friendly without being passive. Gentle giants can be assertive too. They're just careful to avoid hurting littles. :p

Mmm...I like Playful/Mischevious..such giants have a sense of humor and aren't necessarily mean. I don't mind a macro playmate..but don't want to become a micro pancake. 8)

I went with agresive. Why? Well, I like the whole power game an agressive macro can play... completely in charge, and highly aware of the fact. One agressive enough to have what he wants, however he has to get it. Though, even if it's not stated, I'd like to have the agressive macro brighter than the average nightlight, at the very least; the point of intelligence is a very good one, Sue.
It's a macro board and I'm a micro. What's your point?

Though they all have their appeal, I have to chose playful and mischevious. It can encompass all the other categories at one time or another. Kind of a macro of all trades. hehe

I chose aggressive. My reasoning: I think macros should be destructive and should enjoy killing small, insignificant humans. HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Uh, y'know I'm a small insignificant human... WITH THE STRENGTH OF A MACRO! BWAHA!!!

I chose playful, mainly because I always thought it'd be kinda cool to have a giant for a pal. Talking about a rough day, havin' a cold drink on the porch on a hot summers day... Daring him to crush my bosses car for the fun of it...

Yea, that'd be cool. Plus, I'd rather not meet an angry macro... Being crushed under an angry heel tends to put a crimp on my day.

I'd go for a mix of playful and friendly. That way it's both a fun scenario, and you don't have to worry about getting crunched or munched. Aggressive macros always seemed kind of like bullies to me---and I did have to deal with bullies growing up---you know, that whole "tiny on the inside" and no self-esteem thing.

Of course, if they're doing it simply because they're savage, city-smashing animals then I don't have a problem---it's just nature at work. But I instinctively seem to dislike the concept of doing it just for a sadistic pleasure. But then the revenge thing doesn't bother me, just the unprovoked kind.

Maybe I'm just going too deep into it. I do enjoy some rampage here and there, but I watched too many superhero cartoons,so now I think that someone should swoop in and save the day every time I see a mass destruction scene.
