Know classmates? My gunning strategy only lets me socialize with classmates 3.5 hours per week (cut back to 0 hours during finals, obvi).
I know this was tongue-in-cheek, but I'd still like to know how you (or anyone else) would define "gunner" (a personality type that I've heard references to repeatedly but never fully grasped) -- I mean, I study obsessively and for many hours on end, but I'd still help other students, be gracious about good/bad performance, not talk about schoolwork once I leave the library (even if it is at midnight), and, I don't know... be generally nice to people? Does that count? If not, what elements would capture the quintessence of a gunner?
